Test Drive Results In $376,000 Lamborghini Aventador Fire

Not as bad as the guy who crashed his Lambo the day after winning it but it's always a shame to see one of these go. At least there is video footage of the carnage. lol

There is now one less Lamborghini Aventador in the world after one of the expensive luxury cars was spotted over the weekend engulfed in flames on the side of a California highway.

The driver in this particular case was lucky as he won’t have to foot the bill since the car was being taken out for a test drive.

Jalopnik reports that the driver was an “internet millionaire” who was taking the wickedly fast car out for a test spin when the car suddenly lit on fire. It’s unclear what caused the fire but according to the initial report the “left rear wheel” was engulfed in flames.

According to experts that means the fire probably wasn’t collision related. Videos and photos taken at the scene of the accident appear to confirm that no other vehicles were involved in the Lamborghini’s fire.

Lamborghini said that they aren’t sure what caused the fire but they are “trying to figure out what happened.”

The prospective owner of the car posted a photo of himself standing next to the smoldering piece of metal and he looks pretty calm despite the fact that he just wrecked a $375,000 car.

The super expensive sports car is able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds, at this time it is still unclear how fast the car was traveling before the tire burst into flames.

MOTORAUTHORITY.COM - Firefighters were called into duty on Saturday when a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 burst into flames on a highway near Aliso Viejo in Southern California.

With no other reports of Aventadors going up in flames, it's believed that this black example is the first to suffer the sad fate.

Fortunately, the driver managed to escape unscathed but the brand new Aventador, driven during a regular test-drive, is now nothing but a charred pile of aluminum and carbon fiber.

The photo below, which was posted to Facebook, shows that firefighters had little chance of saving the car.

After some further digging, Jalopnik managed to obtain information from a traffic site that stated the fire started near the left rear wheel before spreading to the rest of the vehicle
