Car lovers are baffled after a Lamborghini Aventador turned up in the Asian rainforest.

This incredibly rare supercar didn’t get to the rainforest by itself, so there has to be an explanation for it – but no-one really seems to know.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV – to give it the full title – is reckoned to be worth around $380,000, so it’s not the kind of thing that you’d just lose or leave behind.

Obviously, after sitting in the jungle for an unspecified amount of time, it’s not exactly in the best shape.

It has suffered some cracks in the windows and damage to the exterior of the car.

Footage shared online shows that the car was discovered abandoned in Myanmar, with glass strewn across the seats inside, as well as a few cardboard boxes.

There are dents in the windscreen, too.

It’s fair to say that this car is a long way from where it is supposed to be.

After all, it’s more suited to the streets of Monaco then the outback wilderness of Myanmar.

The Aventador is capable of speeds up to 217 miles per hours, and is so rare that there are only 600 of them out there in the wild, if you’ll excuse the pun.

Reaching 60mph in just 2.8 seconds, the Lamborghini Aventador produces 750 horsepower and has an engine that really should be out there getting seen and heard.

But, here it sits abandoned in a garage in the middle of nowhere.

Not unlike a few other abandoned cars that have turned up recently, like this F1 car that was returned to uits former glory.

Or Japan’s biggest car graveyard that’s filled with classic cars.

There are theories as to why it is there, though.

According to reports, it could be something to do with a crime syndicate made up of four prominent families.

The group is alleged to have carried out online fraud and drug trafficking in a big way, before being broken up by the ‘Myanmar Nationalities Democratic Alliance Army’ towards the back end of 2023.

This means that the car could be some of the property confiscated from those alleged criminals, who were believed to have been raking in billions each year.

After the video was shared on Instagram via an account called @supercarfails, one person commented: “Finders keepers?”

Another wrote: “It was doomed from the moment it arrived there.”

A third person offered another theory, claiming: “This was one of Myanmar’s gov [sic] cars that the rebel took when they raided the house.

“Myanmar is currently in war fighting the junta.”

As for the truth of the matter, we might never know.

So far, no further news has emerged about what became of the car after this video was filmed.

Maybe it’s still sat there in this parking spot, waiting for someone to come along and show it some love?
