Most of us learned to drive in crappy cars, but not this fortunate 16-year-old from Australia. A learner driver was seen behind the wheel of an exotic supercar on a busy highway in Melbourne. The adjacent image was published on a car spotting page on Facebook, and according to the man with the camera, the driver had just finished school that day.
Some people were quick to criticise the youngster and the car's owner, arguing an inexperienced driver shouldn't be allowed in a V12 machine with 760 bhp on tap. The learner driver technically didn't do anything wrong since there aren't any restrictions regarding the type of car as long as a fully licensed driver sits beside them and provides supervision. Another condition is the car must be registered in Victoria.
You must be at least 16 to acquire a learner permit. According to the law in Victoria, drivers on their learner's permit are not allowed to tow. It should be pointed out there aren't any reduced speed limits for learners. You must be at least 18 to get a probationary license but only after having the learner permit for a minimum of 12 months.
According to the person who took the image, the car was being "driven sensibly." If we were to be 16 again, we'd honestly be intimidated by the Aventador SV. Not just because of its sheer power, but also by its size considering the raging bull is 2,030 millimeters (80 inches) wide without mirrors. It also sits extremely low to the ground and has terrible outward visibility.
We'll remind you the SV was one of the many special editions launched by Lamborghini during the Aventador's 11-year life cycle. The LP 750-4 came out in 2015 at the Geneva Motor Show as a coupe before the roadster arrived later the same year at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Whilst the coupe was capped at 600 units, the roadster was even more exclusive, with just 500 cars assembled at the factory in Italy.
