The holidays may be a time of giving and the spirit of the season may leave you feeling that your offspring deserve a bit of special attention, however the consequences of handing over the keys to an exotic Italian sports car with more horsepower then their heavy little right feet can handle can be a risky proposition. Form our friends at Wrecked Exotics we can show you these firsthand accounts of two different family instances that their father’s would rather not talk about to make you think twice about spreading Christmas cheer.

Why you should never lend a Ferrari to your son!

The first accident happened in Newport Beach, CA on Christmas Eve. The 90 year old California native gave his 70 year old son a brand new Ferrari F430. They then let the grandson go for an unsupervised spin in the F430 with his cousin riding shotgun, unfortunately the car lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic where the Ferrari crashed head on into a tow truck. Tragically the passenger did not survive the impact and the driver remains in critical condition. The second occurrence happened in Romania and this time involved a drop top Ferrari F430 Spider. The kid driving the car lost control and crashed into an opposing car, however unlike the previous accident, he was unharmed.

Well the thing about not just teenagers actually is that when they are given a chance like driving a great car like this, they see it as an opportunity and not a responsibility. But I guess I have to say that some of that responsibility belongs to the parents. Hope the kids are alright-well not from the crash but from their parents.

poor car, they should have donate their money to the orphanage or charity instead of buying expensive cars like this one, he should buy instead a street tuned cars like evo or subaru. well i guess they have to much money and they don’t know how to spend it wisely.

I think the one to blame on this one is the guardians of this driver that permitted to drive this luxurious Ferrari F430. If you don’t lend this car, it will not happen and for the repairs of this one, you will throw thousands of bucks and maybe the cost of repairs is equivalent to 2 Nissan 370Z.
