For most teenagers, their driving education typically begins with a modest vehicle, and a humble initiation into the world of traffic rules and road etiquette.
But for this Aussie teenager, the classroom of choice is none other than a $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador.
A photo of the flash car with Learner plates on has caught the attention of a bunch of people online, after the photo was posted to Melbourne’s Car Spotters’ Facebook page.
Along with the photo, the caption read, “This Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV was spotted yesterday afternoon being driven by a 16-year-old after school pickup."
A sixteen year old? Driving back from school in a lamborghini? Geeeeez.
The Lamborghini has a top speed of 350km/h and was snapped driving down Melbourne’s Eastern Freeway on Friday last week.
Thousands of people reacted to the post and took to the comments to share their thoughts - and it’s clear to see there were two types of comments, i.e. two different classes in society.
"Absolutely love this!!!”, one person wrote. “I learned in a Rolls Royce, Merc, Porsche & Beemer … but our Ferrari was off limits. My kids in a Range Rover and a Merc. It is what it is."
Must be nice.
But for the rest of us plebs, our learning-to-drive experience involved driving in an older sibling's shitty 1993 Toyota Corolla with no air-con and chipped windows.
A lot of people took to the comments to share the humble cars they learnt to drive in, with one person commenting, “I learnt to drive in a rusty old Torana!!”
Another commented, “I learnt to drive in the world’s fastest car - Hertz rental”
We’re sure the Aussie teen driving the lambo feels pretty sick - but it sounds like a bit of a more-dollars-than-sense situation to us.
