London may be making moves to prevent supercar owners from showing off engine notes, but their newly proposed laws haven’t yet passed, and one Aventador owner is taking advantage of the free time left.
YouTube channel TheTFJJ shared a video Oct. 26 of a black Lamborghini Aventador revving its engine and shooting flames for a solid five minutes, surrounded by a crowd of car spotters the entire time. As the video description shares, this particular Aventador features a quad-tip exhaust from Frequency Intelligence, which means that the more intense revs are accompanied by bursts of fire from the rear.

Through a quick comparison to Google street view, we’re able to figure out that this video was shot on Sloane Street in London, just a short two blocks over from the Harrods department store in London’s Knightsbridge neighborhood. It’s this one particular area where residents are particularly tired of engine noises, and over the summer, The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea proposed a new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to ban that type of “anti-social” behavior in the neighborhood.
As the council’s website describes, hearings for this ordinance occurred in August and September, and a final decision is expected to be released before the end of this month. As there are only five days left in October, including today, this Aventador owner was cutting it close. In the video we see one police officer approached the driver to deliver a warning, but in the near future, that warning could have instead been a criminal charge and/or a fine of up to £100.

Keep in mind, this driver was on a public roadway and traffic had to stop due to the large crowd gathered. We always remind you to follow local traffic laws, and be courteous to other drivers on the road.
That being said, find your own Aventador for some high revs on a track near you from our exclusive listings below.
