As bizarre as it sounds, that is what exactly happened. A 20 year old got tired of his Ferrari 458 Italia and decided to ask his father for a new one, but only in a different manner.
He hired a few accomplices, according to reports, steal the car, drive it across the border and burn it. Simple, right?
The plan was executed perfectly, however, they only got caught thanks to security cameras that caught the whole action. The police were able track the car back to the owner, who was at a local massage parlor during the whole incident.
Now, the 20 year old had paid the accomplices USD 15,000 to finish the job. The 20 year old Ferrari owner, who was the mastermind did this since he was not brave enough to tell his father that he did not like his Ferrari, and also that his USD 30 million self portfolio and USD 10,000 allowance per month had gone dry.
So, in the end, the 20 year old was sentenced to 22 months' probation and was fined USD 32,000. That's one way to get noticed with Ferrari!
