A passenger was killed and the driver injured when a Lamborghini crashed into a guardrail at an exotic car racing attraction at Walt Disney World that lets racing fans tool around in luxurious speeding cars.

The Associated Press reported the Florida Highway Patrol as saying Tavon Watson, 24, of nearby Kissimmee lost control of the vehicle Sunday afternoon, killing Gary Terry, 36, of Davenport, Florida.

Sgt. Kim Montes said in an incident report that Watson failed to maneuver the high-powered vehicle through the Exotic Driving Experience course. The vehicle’s passenger side struck the guardrail. Terry died at the scene. Watson was taken to nearby Celebration Hospital, where he was treated and released.

At the attraction located south of the Magic Kingdom parking lotsFans can be drivers or passengers in Lamborghinis, Porsches or Ferraris for between $200 and $400. They can drive several laps with a professional driving instructor in the passenger seat.

A Disney spokeswoman declined comment after the crash.

The track is operated by Petty Holdings, which has other Exotic Driving Experience attractions at speedways in Atlanta, Daytona Beach, New Jersey, Kansas, New Hampshire and Texas.

In a statement, Petty Holdings said: “On behalf of everyone in the organization, it is with a very heavy heart that we extend our deepest sympathies to those involved in today’s tragic accident in Orlando.”

The Exotic Driving Experience, along with its sibling track, the Richard Petty Driving Experience, was slated to close this summer at Disney World for unrelated reasons.

Montes said the crash remains under investigation.
