Teen crashes Verde Scandal Lamborghini Aventador

A Verde Scandal Lamborghini Aventador has flipped and crashed, possibly in California, while it was being driven by a 17-year-old, according to thesupercarkids.com.

Reports from other blogs say the kid was 19, but still, why is someone that young behind the wheel of something so rare like this? Not to mention that it’s apparently the only one of this color that’s registered in the United States.

The Super Car Kids blog reports that a friend of the driver states the vehicle was airborne for a few seconds before crashing and landing on its back.

No serious injuries were reported.
