If you ever want to splurge for your children, stick to pony rides and don’t do what Mohammed Nisham did for his kid. According to the Associated Press, the Indian father gave his 9-year-old son the ultimate birthday present — a $4 million red Ferrari F430. What’s ever more outrageous is that the dad let him drive the car despite the fact that he’s underage and filmed it for YouTube.
The video went viral in India, and naturally, people were outraged at the father for giving such an opulent and dangerous gift to his kid. Of course, the police caught up with Nisham’s antics once the YouTube video went viral and arrested him for child endangerment and then impounded the Ferrari.
Despite the father’s arrest, the kid’s mother had no regrets, telling NDTV that she was proud of her kid, who has been driving since he was 5 years old.
She added: “It was his ninth birthday, and since he was insisting for months, we allowed him to drive the Ferrari. He is a cautious and confident driver.”
Too bad for the kid — he’ll have to wait another 7-8 years before doing donuts with the latest Ferrari model.
