Teen dies in Lamborghini test drive crash

A New York teenager died when he was out on a test drive in his favourite $200,000 Lamborghini.

The 18-year-old lost control of the car and rammed into a guardrail, reported Daily Mail.

Investigating officers believe high speed is the cause of the crash.

His father, who owns an auto body shop, says his son's favourite car was the Lamborghini, but he wasn't aware of the impromptu test drive.

The car's owner, a family friend of the teen, was a passenger in the car. He escaped with injuries.

The teenager's Facebook page has dozens of pictures of fast cars and bikes as well as flyers of car rallies.

He's been around cars since a kid, says his father.
