I hope he can run.....Fast.

20-year-old writes off dad's £275,000 supercar
Quote
It's never pleasant telling someone you've crashed their car - but imagine telling dad you've just written off his £275,000 Gumpert Apollo.
That's what a 20-year-old German man has to do - after he was lucky to escape with his life.
The man, who has not been named, was driving his father's rare supercar when he lost control of it. A 19-year-old girl was with him in the passenger seat.
Amazingly, both escaped with only minor injuries, despite the car being a complete write off.

20 years old eh! wonder how much his insurance premium was for that (if insured in the UK) or more precisely what it will be now!
Lucky to walk away alive though.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

If you can afford a car like that then the cost of insurance should be no problem. If the lad was not insured for the car all his Dad has to say is he took it without his permission !

I wonder how much that had to do with it. Showing off a bit, perchance?
