Undergrads With Lamborghinis: A Look At China’s ‘Supercar Kids’ In California

A recent report by the U.S. State Department states that nearly 275,000 Chinese students studied at universities in the United States for the 2013-14 school year, and with almost all of them paying the full tuition sticker price, it’s not a surprise that many hail from wealthy families. A new video report by Vocativ takes a look at the richest of the ultra-rich Chinese students living in Southern California by attending a luxury car meetup organized on WeChat.

According to the video, they arrange the secret events because a fear of being too conspicuous means many aren’t driving their supercars to school—as one girl explains, “I have an Audi for that.” Check out the video above to see the 20-something Chinese students discussing why they chose their Ferraris, Bentleys, and Lamborghinis to cruise around California as they hit the books.
