Lamborghini Aventador: First Fire

Unfortunately, we all knew that it was only a matter of time before the Aventador had its name written on the list of supercars that catch fire while being driven around and that moment has arrived over the weekend, when an example of the bull burst up in flames in the US.
This is believed to be the first Aventador fire - an black one was swallowed by flames on California Route 73 South, while going past El Toro Rd in the proximity of Newport Beach.

The car, which is the property of Lamborghini Newport Beach was being test driven when flames cam bursting out of the left rear wheel well or tire. Believe it or not, there’s also a good side to this story, as nobody was injured by the fire.

All three southbound lanes of the highway were closed until firefighters brought the situation under control, with the adjacent video showing them fighting the flames.
