Good kebab! Lamborghini supercar goes up in smoke as race guys try to grill meat with burning exhaust
- Supercar fans saw Lamborghini’s engine spinning to flame skewered meat
- But the Aventador model overheats quickly and smoke comes out the rear
- Believed that when the car’s V-12 engine is cold, it causes a huge pressure build-up in the water system and causes coolant to leak on the floor
- Model costs about £277,000, but prices exceed $1 million in China due to taxes
This is when a group of supercar fans tried to flame grill meat on the exhaust of a luxury Lamborghini and soon regretted the stunt.
You can see the boy racers walking around in shock as clouds of white vapor pour from the rear of the expensive Aventador model and blood-red coolant spills over the floor.
The footage was taken in a car garage in China, where it appears a group of men had met their sporting vehicles.

The video shows a man crouching next to the Lamborghini’s exhaust with a piece of meat on the end of a skewer.
Another man then revs the car’s powerful V12 engine, sending flames of burning fuel shooting out of the pipe to cook the food.
But within seconds, trouble sets in as smoke starts flowing from the rear engine compartment and a red coolant spills over the floor.
The men, despite being car enthusiasts, are left in shock and none of them seem to know what to do.

Experts have suggested the accident happened because the Lamborghini was revving in a cold state, creating pressure in the cooling system that couldn’t escape
Experts have suggested that the accident happened because the Lamborghini was being toured in a cold state, but because it was not reaching high temperatures and the thermostat was closed.
This means that the driver applied a lot of pressure in the coolant lines, despite the engine not needing to be cooled, so with nowhere to go, the pressure continues to build until something goes wrong.
It looks like the plastic coolant tank has cracked, causing the blood red coolant to spill over the floor.
Aventadors can reach a top speed of 217 mph but can cost more than $1 million in China due to high taxes to curb expensive spending habits and emissions. Pictured: a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster
Aventadors can reach a top speed of 217 mph, but come with a hefty price tag of around £277,000 in the UK.
In China, however, the vehicles could cost as much as $1 million (£700,000) due to government taxes to address expensive spending habits and emissions.
In 2016, the government levied an additional 10 percent tax on any car over Rmb 1.3 million ($190,000) to “steer reasonable consumption”, reduce emissions and save energy according to the country’s Ministry of Finance .
