(Scroll down for video) A 24-year-old man was looking forward to racing in a $220,000 Lamborghini at Disney World, Florida.
Tavon Watson received a birthday gift from his wife, which allowed him to race an exotic car at Disney World.
However, the joy turned into tragedy when the Lamborghini crashed into a guardrail when Watson lost control of it before it crashed.
Customers pay anywhere from $200 to nearly $500 for the chance to race 6 laps around a track in an expensive car, including Porsches, Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
The drivers are accompanied by professional driving instructors. When Watson hit the guardrail, the driving instructor was killed.
The instructor was identified as 36-year-old Gary Terry. The driver was taken to a hospital and is recovering from minor injuries.
A spokesperson of Exotic Driving Experience said: “On behalf of everyone in the organization, it is with a heavy heart that we extend our deepest condolences to those involved in the tragic accident today in Orlando.”
The attraction was due to close this summer because the park wanted to expand parking space.
