    Default Aventador burns down . . .

    WATCH IT: Lamborghini On Fire! - KHQ Right Now - News and Weather for Spokane and North Idaho |

    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.

    That pic reminds me of Rob's old avatar with the fireman hosing down his Miata (see fire hose at left). Only this guy has a much more expensive wreck than Rob.

    Why is he on the wrong side of the road? Or, at least facing the wrong direction?
    Remember when there were no pit lane speed limits in F!?!

    That road on the right side of the picture is an on-ramp.
