A valet driver got a little too creative in trying to show off a guest’s Lamborghini, in a video posted on YouTube.

The $397,000 Lamborghini Aventador is seen on fire 20 seconds into the video.

“Guy revving his Lambo like an idiot and it catches fire on Lincoln Road,” one person on Instagram wrote. “Be safe out there, the Bros are in town.”

In the video, which has now been made private, the fire is put out via a fire extinguisher, leaving the car engulfed in smoke, as bystanders record the incident on their phones.

Reports said the unnamed valet revved the engine too vigorously, causing flames to burst from the car’s rear.
