A Lamborghini Aventador worth $376,000 caught fire during a test drive by a potential buyer on California's Route 73 South.

Venture capitalist Jason Schultz took the car for a test drive Sunday, and as the car was running along San Joanquin Hills, Calif., Schultz noticed that the engine began to smoke. Schultz pulled over and escaped to safety before the sports car burst into flames. Schultz was not hurt.

The Aventador is one of the most elite cars in the luxury sports car market. According to the Italy-based company, the Aventador is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph.
