14-Year-Old Drives Dad's Ferrari 458 Italia, Films It


Most 14-year-olds would jump at the chance to get behind the wheel of a beat-up minivan, never mind an Italian supercar.

This kid has more resources than most. He's driven his dad's Ferrari 458 Italia twice, and decided to show off with a Youtube video.

The drive took place entirely on private property, so having an unlicensed driver behind the wheel wasn't strictly illegal. At any rate, the teenager seemed to be pretty far away from any law-enforcement entities.

While the video's caption promises "insane acceleration," the youthful driver doesn't even touch 60 mph. Still, that's plenty fast for someone who isn't supposed to be driving at all, and is wrangling a 562-horsepower, 4.5-liter V-8.

The video's star is actually pretty careful, letting the V-8 rev a little but avoiding any stunts that might damage him or the Ferrari.

Kids driving Ferraris is becoming as much of a viral sensation as Internet cats. Just a few months ago, we found a Libyan kid hooning a 458 around a dusty parking lot, and earlier this year an Indian man faced charges for allowing his nine-year-old son to drive a Ferrari F430 on public roads.

Clearly, money doesn't buy common sense.
