Another Lambo brurns at the hands of an amateur.

With all the news about Lamborghini’s going up in flames you would think people would be more cautious, but here we are again talking about yet another Lambo roasting away. This time, it is what appears to be a Lamborghini Aventador burning at the hands of a valet driver. Rumor has spread that the valet was out for a joyride in a customer’s car, but that has yet to be confirmed.

As you’ll see when you watch the video, we don’t get to see exactly what the valet driver was doing leading up to the fire, but the result is the same regardless. This kind of fire normally starts because the driver is revving the engine too much without the car moving. The lack of air circulation allows the exhaust gases, and more importantly, the heat to build up – eventually igniting a fire.

In all honesty, I can’t really hate on the Valet driver that much – temptation does kick in rather strong once you get behind the wheel of a car like the Aventador. The sound of the engine is great to listen to, and quite empowering, but it still doesn’t excuse the fact that the valet driver made a fatal mistake. You never rev a Lambo constantly when sitting at a standstill. I would like to say that is something everybody should know given the repetition of fires like this, but apparently that isn’t the case.

Either way, you can be sure the valet lost his job. And, as for the owner, I bet he’ll think twice next time he doesn’t feel like parking his car himself.
