High school kids these days...

Quote:
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is one of the rarest Gallardos ever built. There are just 150 in the entire world.
But one of them has been seen in the parking lot of a Texas High School. And even more surprisingly, it is allegedly being driven there by a 15-year old girl with a license granted to people that are in economic hardships.

Say what?!

This scene takes place outside Dallas, Texas at what looks to be Coppell High School. The car is the Gallardo STS, which is one of the rarest Gallardos ever made. Based on the cars used in the Super Trofeo racing series, there are just 150 on the roads worldwide, and they are basically hell on wheels.
Redditor celli_ says that the car came to their school with a 15-year old girl at the helm. But you don't get a license in Texas until you're 16. So how would it be legal for her to drive it? And, more importantly, who lets a 15-year old drive a Lamborghini?
The supposed driver reportedly has what would be known as a "hardship license." A hardship license is only available to people under the legal driving age that has a family that fits one of four conditions:

Quote:
1. The applicant's family faces an unusual economic hardship and is being deprived of the basic necessities of life.
2. The applicant has an ill family member who needs transportation to medical treatment or the applicant must drive in her place to keep the household running.
3. The applicant is enrolled in a vocational educational program.
4. An immediate family member has died and remaining family members need him to drive temporarily to carry on household routines.
With just 150 of these Gallardos in the world, it shouldn't be too hard to find out some information on this particular one that is gallavanting around the Dallas area and debunk this story. We called Top Speed Auto, as their name is on the car, to see what the deal was.
Top Speed told us that this particular Gallardo belongs to a friend of the owner of the company. He doesn't have a 15-year old daughter, but he does have a 19-year old son who is an accomplished driver that drives the car from time to time. Top Speed said that is the youngest person that they know of that is driving the car.
The concern is that someone younger might be driving the car. This Gallardo is 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.
Top Speed also told us that having cars like this at a high school isn't unheard of. They told us they've heard about kids with Ferraris, Porsches, and other exotics that kids don't normally have at high schools in the area. The big difference is that they aren't involved with any of those cars.
That actually leaves us with more questions than answers.
If a 15-year old girl was actually driving it, who let her? Did the 19-year old let her drive the car for a little bit to impress her friends? Or is the Redditor full of crap? Or perhaps it's just a combination of all of the above.

^That's an understatement lol. This is the dumbest thing that 19 year old did. It's more than likely what happened, just to impress her so he he can date an underage kid. smh

A 19 yr old driving a rare Lamborghini probably isn't too concerned about impressing a 15 year old. He could pull up and select whoever he wants to hop in regardless of age

Boy, it's unbelievable what passes as news these days. High School prank goes national? Great way to get out Top Speed's name in the process...

Not saying this is what happened, but just presenting a different perspective.

A guy that streaked at Athens High School made WZYP's morning radio show 3 days in a row and the cover of USA Today.
