Teenager sets fire to Ferrari 458 – because he wanted a Speciale A

A spoilt 19-year-old set fire to his Ferrari 458 in a bid to make his rich dad buy him a new Speciale A.

According to reports by Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger, the teenager, from Zurich, had been bought a Ferrari 458 by his father in March 2014.

But when the 458 Speciale A was revealed at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the unnamed man visited his local Ferrari dealer for a part-exchange valuation of his 458.

The valuation wasn’t enough for a Speciale A – and it would take him too long to save up his 5,000 to 10,000 Swiss francs (roughly £3-6,000) monthly pocket money – so, as he didn’t want to admit to his dad that he was bored of his Ferrari, he came up with a plan to set fire to it.

The man travelled to Germany where he visited a brothel while a number of acquaintances set fire to his Ferrari for an agreed fee.

Unfortunately for the 19-year-old, who also owns a Lamborghini and 11 other cars, the arson was caught on camera and his plan was found out by police.

He was given a suspended sentence of one year and nine months, and ordered to pay 30,000 euros.

      Yes, maybe the father should set fire to the son in the bid to get a new one. That’d fix the problem!
      Jokes of course, but yeah bad parenting is more than likely a very large part of the reason for this.
