A Texas teen caused a stir Tuesday at her high school when she rolled up in a flashy rare Lamborghini that retails for $330,000.

The owner of the car is a wealthy banker who also owns 14 other exotic vehicles.

"She is just a great person and I asked her if she wanted to drive the car to school once,” Quentin told FoxNews.com. "This was not her everyday car."

The unnamed teen, 15, is the daughter of Quentin’s girlfriend. The teen's normal car is no lemon. It's a 2013 BMW M6 convertible, which costs $130,000. 

Quentin said she was never criticized for driving the BMW to school, but when she pulled up in the bright red Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale, it created a scene.

There were only 150 of these cars built. This is particular car is number 123. They reach speeds of 200mph.

"I wanted to reward her for her hard work," Quentin said, pointing out that she receives straight A's and is in the drama club. "And I hold myself responsible for the situation it's created."

In Texas, you need to be 16 to get a license. The teen has a "hardship license," Quentin said. He said her "hardship" is not financial. Rather, both he and his girlfriend work long hours, and the teen oftentimes helps them with chores and picks up her 6-year-old brother from daycare.

These licenses are not unusual. There are various categories in which you can receive one including a sick relative or, in some cases, a financial difficulty.

"If you ever met her, she's the nicest girl you'll ever meet," he said. "These people are just a bunch of haters."

Since the girl parked the car at a high school in Carrollton, Texas, a website posted pictures of the car taken by a fellow student, he said. These photos show the license plate and he said that enabled people to identify its owner.

His family has been harassed and people have been digging into his personal affairs, Quentin said. He said he has lawyer investigating a possible defamation lawsuit against the website that ran the photos.

Quentin said he is a self-made man who worked as an investment banker and entrepreneur. He said he remembers not being able to afford a car in high school and "worked his butt off" to get where he is today.

"If you want to get a car like that, work for it," he said. "I did."
