Someone is Driving This Ultra-Rare $300,000 Lamborghini to Hebron High School

Note: The original post said the car was at Coppell High School. It was at Hebron High School in Carrollton. And yes, it was driven to school by a 15-year-old, per Jalopnik's update, which you'll find below.

The car you see above is a Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. It's rare (only 150 exist in the world), expensive (almost $300,000 on eBay), and was apparently parked in the lot of -- wait for it -- Coppell Hebron High School in Carrolton.

What is a $300,000 Lamborghini doing at a high school? Per Jalopnik, which first reported the sighting, the speculation on Reddit is that it's driven by a 15-year-old girl with a hardship license.

Dallas' Top Speed Auto told Jalopnik that the Gallardo in question belongs to a friend of the owner of the company who has a 19-year-old son, but not a 15-year-old daughter. It's used by Top Speed as a promotional car and an R&D car, so even though they don't own it, they do know who is typically driving it and where it is.

Update at 2:17 p.m. from Jalopnik:

In an amazing twist, it appears the Redditor is actually not full of crap. We just spoke some more with Top Speed, who told us the man with the 19-year old son doesn't own the car, but is the owner's driving instructor. The man who owns the car has a girlfriend with an 18-year old son... and a 15-year old daughter. The Gallardo was in storage at Top Speed almost all summer until earlier this week when it went back to the owner. It has been confirmed to Jalopnik that these pictures were indeed taken at Hebron High School in Carrollton, TX, not Coppell High School as we originally thought, and they were probably taken yesterday. Reportedly the owner also has a Ferrari 458, which the 18-year old and 15-year old have driven "frequently." And now you have the rest of the story.

Hey though its a costly car it doesn't make worth than a life. I think driving at the age of 15 is not good. Make sure you get the license then go for the drive. So that no one can point out you.

Incidentally, in this day and age of hyper-security, wouldn't somebody poking around a high school parking lot taking pictures arouse quite a bit of suspicion among the staff?

@frogsfight @tedhodgdon at least the kid parked in the end spot.

The hardship would be paying for gas and insurance for the beast.  A 15 yr. old driving a car that gets 13 mpg in the city.  Hardship?  Where?

I love cool cars and dislike spoiled kids, but dang, this story didn't merit as much work as was put into it.

Sure beats my 1975 Monza Town Coupe......with the broken frame so when you went around a corner the tire rubbed on the wheel well body. Oh well, it was 4 wheels which is all that mattered at the time.

Yeah! Lets stalk a 15 year old girl and post an article about it in the Dallas weekly.

The only part of this article I find interesting (actually scary) is that Texas will let a 15 year old drive. Just another reason our roads constantly rate as some of the most dangerous in the country.

Why is this being reported? Are you trying to get the kid carjacked? Why don't you go ahead and give out the kid's home address? Or better yet, what business is this of yours, in any possible way? Then again, it's what Observer "reporters" and bloggers do best: talk out of their collective ass, disregard facts, have an aversion to reason, and filter everything through a myopic, and puerile, highly ideological lens...all while living in an echo-chamber.

This is a case of "more money than brains." What kind of parent allows their teenager to drive a sports car, let alone one of that caliber?? Next story: Spoiled Teen Totals Daddy's Lambo While Drinking and Driving

I went to Terrell High and a kid there drove a Delorean. it was 1991-92, so the Delorean was really only cool to car nerds like me, but those doors would impress anyone!

This is already a stupid report. Let alone an inaccurate one. Find a real story. Kids with Lambo's in the metroplex shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

a 15 year old with a hardship license wouldn't be able to afford the insurance on this car even if she had to work. WTF? What kind of hardship does she have? Being ridiculed at riding the bus?

Coleman- Depends completely on the kid. I went to high school with a kid whose dad was loaded and allowed him to drive whatever he wanted to school. Despite driving a 4 door Dinan M3, occasionally bringing one of the Ferarris or Porsches, I never once saw him talking to girls. Nor did girls ride in the cars with him.

Well, I would be surprised if the kid is pulling any tail seeing as the 15 year old is also a female.

The real question is how much tail is the kid pulling with this beast?

A Lambo in high school guarantees driving a pinto when you're 40.

Eric, come on. Stop being the Felix Jones of the Observer. Getting the value from eBay? Getting the high school wrong initially? Posting it in the first place?

 

I'm guessing we have the Apple Store camping story to look forward to in your series of hard-hitting journalism today.

Meh.  Kid at my high school (Lamar in Arlington) many moons ago, drove a different exotic to school almost daily.  Three different Ferarri F355s, three different Porsche 911s, a GMC Typhoon with a $50K audio system in it, a GMC Cyclone, a Viper, but most days he drove a brand new 4 door M3.  When they first started making them.  Consequently, the cars were vandalized, so this person is a moron for letting this kid take that car to school.

I hate how retarded the comments on Unfair Park have become...it's a rare car and an interesting story, go take your bullshit politics elsewhere.

@DSmorrissey @tedhodgdon doesnt matter. Liss said it got keyed.

 @joearpaio "The applicant attends school and also works to help support his family. It would create a hardship for his parents or guardian to leave their jobs in order to drive him to work, and there is no other transportation available."

 

She probably has to work to help pay the family's car payments and auto insurance.

 @tylerball60  Really?  would you let a poorly trained kid fire an assault rifle?  Because that car is dangerous being driven by an inexperienced driver

 @sstrong42

 I was just thinking the exact same thing. Especially now that it has gone nationwide. Now people all over the world know that you can be the owner of an ultra rare Lambo if you can overpower a 15 year old girl.

 @monstruss It's not a story and the only interesting thing about it is how wrong the author was about everything.

 @bigjondaniel  @tylerball60 What is MORE dangerous about allowing a "poorly trained kid" fire an assault rifle than a conventional sporting rifle? A sensible, logical answer please.

 

In the hands of an inexperienced driver, ANY automobile is dangerous, regardless of it's performance potential, just as ANY firearm in the hands of an unsupervised neophyte is dangerous.

 @jdjasd  @monstruss STFU, its interesting, the car is rare, and how is a 15 y.o driving it.  Who gives a fuck so much as to be pissed a writer wrote about something that interested him.  me think its about time @joe.tone pulls a Dmag and shut these mother fucking comments down for a bit

 @DirtyP1  @monstruss  @ObserverHatesFacts I'm RICH and I WANT MY KID TO BE ABLE TO DRIVE AN EXPENSIVE LAMBO TO SCHOOL TO MAKE THE OTHER PARENTS FEEL INADEQUATE so they'll come and buy junior a Lexus! Or an Infinity, at least.

 

THAT kind of "Hardship".

 @DirtyP1  @monstruss  @ObserverHatesFacts

 Unless they changed the rules, its pretty easy to get a hardship. I got one because both of my parents worked and my house wasnt on any of my schools bus routes. Sure, my parents could have dropped me off on their way to work and I lived less than 5 miles from the school. But I got to be the cool kid that could drive early and my parents had an errand boy that they could send off for take-out and trips to the grocery store. Everybody won.

 @monstruss  @ObserverHatesFacts 

My point is what kind of hardship does a kid have at 15, to be driving a 300k car?

I guess I consider a hardship if they have to work to help support their family or something.
