A potential Lamborghini Aventador customer probably was not only disappointed but also had a bad first impression of a Lamborghini after his test drive this past weekend.

While taking the V-12 powered supercar out for a spin on an Orange County highway, a fire started near the driver’s side rear tyre. Several people stopped to film the firefighters as they extinguished the flames.

The carbon-fiber rich construction of the Aventador appears to melt as large chunks of the exotic material crumble from the high-pressure fire hoses. At one point the flames appear to be extinguished until one of the firefighters begins tearing up the body, exposing the smoldering flames to more oxygen.

No one was injured, according to the video poster. Check out the video below of the flaming Lamborghini Aventador.
