Watch what happens when this Lamborghini Aventador revs excessively – Video

lamborghini aventador fire revving

Shouts and honks failed to catch the attention of the driver of a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, resulting the car go up in flames.

A flashy yellow Lamborghini Aventador Roadster LP720-4 50 Anniversario in a limited run of 100 units worldwide has received its fair share of attention, not for its exclusivity but for the fact that its owner set the car in flames due to excessive revving. This happened on the streets of Dubai, when the driver stopped at the traffic lights.

Footage taken from a dashboard camera on a car behind the Lambo, shows the driver of the Aventador revving up the engine to such an extent that it emitted fire from its rear. Obviously, the fire seems to have been a result of excessive revving, but in reality that is not the case. Cars like these are built to survive such situations.

Owner of the Lamborghini Aventador oblivious of flames emerging from rear end of his prized car drove off after traffic lights turned green only to be stopped short when the entire car caught fire. While the driver managed to exit from the flaming car unhurt, the same cannot be said about the yellow Aventador Roadster LP720-4 50 Anniversario which was engulfed in flames even before fire tenders could reach the spot.


The driver of the Lamborghini Aventador has revealed herself. Below is what she posted on her instagram.

    Wow, do your editors not know when your writing is full of carp? The car caught fire from excessive revving? That is too funny. Cars do not catch fire from excessive revving, they catch fire due to many faults or malfunctions almost to numerous to list. They do not catch fire from something they are designed to do unless something has gone wrong.

    Sloppy journalism at best.
    The car owner was not driving, it was a rental
    The car driver was a she not a ‘he’
