Goner kebab! Lamborghini supercar goes up in smoke when boy racers try to grill meat using its flaming exhaust
- Supercar fans seen revving Lamborghini’s engine to flame grill skewered meat
- But Aventador model quickly overheats sending smoke pouring out the back
- Believed revving car’s V-12 engine while cold cause huge build up of pressure in water system and causing coolant to leak out onto floor
- Model costs around £277,000 but prices exceed $1million in China due to taxes
This is the moment a group of supercar fans tried to flame grill meat on a luxury Lamborghini’s exhaust and swiftly regretted the stunt.
The boy racers can be seen standing around in shock as white clouds of fumes pour out the back of the expensive Aventador model and blood-red coolant ran across the floor.
The footage was taken in a car garage in China, where it appears a group of men had met up with their sporty vehicles.

In the video, one man is seen crouching next to the exhaust of the Lamborghini holding a piece of meat on the end of a skewer.
Another man then revs the car’s powerful V12 engine, sending flames from the burning fuel shooting out the pipe to cook the food.
But within seconds problems arise as smoke starts pouring out of the back engine compartment and a red coolant liquid runs out across the floor.
The men, despite being car fanatics, are left in shock with none of them appearing to know what to do.

Experts have suggested that the accident happened because the Lamborghini was being revved while cold which created pressure in the coolant system that couldn’t escape
Experts have suggested that the accident happened because the Lamborghini was being revved while cold but as it isn’t getting up to high temperatures and the thermostat was closed.
This means that the driver was creating a lot of pressure in the coolant lines despite no need to cool the engine, so with nowhere to go the pressure keeps building until something fails.
It appears the plastic coolant tank ruptured, causing the blood-red coolant to stream out over the floor.
Aventadors can reach a top speed of 217mph but can cost over $1million in China because of hefty taxes to kerb expensive spending habits and emissions. Pictured: A Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster
Aventadors can reach a top speed of 217mph but come with a hefty price tag of around £277,000 in the UK.
However in China the vehicles can cost as much as $1million (£700,000) due to taxes by the government to tackle expensive spending habits and emissions.
In 2016 the government slapped an extra 10 per cent tax on any car over Rmb1.3m ($190,000) to ‘guide reasonable consumption’, lower emissions and save energy according to the country’s treasury ministry.
