Rich kid set his Ferrari 458 Italia on fire because he wanted a new one

A Swiss millionaire officially has the brattiest child in the world. The man’s unnamed 20-year-old son intentionally set his $400,000 Ferrari 458 Italia on fire, hoping to get insurance money to buy the Italian company’s newer, better, faster model.

According to theNew York Daily News, the poor kid just wanted a new Ferrari and was too afraid to tell his father that his 458 was a horrible car in his eyes and that he desperately needed a new one, so he took things into his own hands.

Let’s just take a second to think about the horrible situation the kid was in — not only was his Ferrari no longer the newest, best model he could buy, but he was only receiving $13,000 a month in allowance money. Oh, and the fact he only has 14 other cars, including peasant models like a Lamborghini. I mean, did he have any other option?

Lucky for him, he met a Ferrari salesman who recommended that because his current Ferrari wouldn’t cover the costs of the new one, he should just destroy it and get the insurance company to pay it off.

So the kid, who is as equally as intelligent as the Ferrari salesman, then went out and hired two people, for close to $20,000 each to take his car through the nearby Swiss border into Germany and set it on fire. He even went and got a relaxing massage while this was all happening so he would have an alibi.

But unfortunately for our unlucky and hard-done-by 20-year-old, the whole act of arson was caught by pesky security cameras. Darn you security companies!

So now, his Ferrari has been completely destroyed, he’s getting 22 months probation and a $44,000 fine and he only has 14 cars left.

Dramatic scenes after £100,000 supercar ploughed into Sutton Coldfield house

Dramatic scenes after £100,000 supercar ploughed into Sutton Coldfield house

Pictures have been released that show the dramatic aftermath when a £100,000 sports car lost control and smashed into a house in Sutton Coldfield.

The occupants of the detached house in Hill Hook Road, Four Oaks, took these pictures, minutes after being awoken by an Audi R8 ploughing just feet away from where they were sleeping.

A 19-year-old local man has been charged with drink driving over the crash which happened at 5am on Saturday.

The occupants, Harold and Janet Perry, told how the white sports car destroyed the front fence and wall and smashed down their front door and part of the porch.

Harold, aged 72, and Janet, 71, were asleep in their bedroom at the front of the house – less than 2ft from where the car landed.

Mr Perry, a retired electrical contractor, said: “We were asleep when all of a sudden ‘boom!’ there was a massive bang and I thought a bomb had gone off.

“We looked out the window and saw this white car was next to the house sideways onto the pavement.

“We could see a man and a woman inside and my wife called out ‘are you alright?’ and they didn’t answer so we rang the police and went downstairs.”

Mrs Perry, a retired book-keeper, said by the time they got downstairs the couple had got themselves out of the car and were walking down the road.

“We were told by the police that the man who was driving the car only lived around the corner and went home but then came back,” she said.

“This is a busy road with a 30mph limit. They were coming up the road and must have lost control, spun round and ended up sideways in our house.”

He is charged with driving a vehicle with an alcohol level above the limit, using a vehicle on the road without insurance and aggravated vehicle taking.

He has been bailed to appear at Birmingham magistrates court on May 14.

Video: Make-A-Wish Kid Gets Ride Of His Life In Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse

For many, the obsession with cars started shortly after leaving the womb, which makes the owners and dealers of exotic hardware particularly suited to provide families facing bone-chilling diagnoses with some much-needed levity.

Park Place Motors in Dallas, Texas recently partnered with the Make-A-Wish foundation to host  a seven-year old car nut and leukemia patient Michael, providing him with the opportunity to get up close and personal with a McLaren 650S and Bentley Continental GT.

And while Michael—who’s familiar with all the latest supercars via video games— was obviously thrilled to sit in the driver’s seat of those exotics, the dealership went above and beyond by arranging for factory driver Butch Leitzinger to take him for a spin in his dream car—a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.

Superyacht with a helipad, submarine storage… and its own infinity pool

Superyacht with a helipad, submarine storage... and its own infinity pool

When the ultra-rich splash out on a new superyacht, they expect it to come with all the latest accessories. And that’s exactly what they get with the 223ft Explorer, which comes with its own helipad, infinity pool and plenty for space for supercar and jetski storage.

With space for 12 lucky guests on board, the concept yacht from British yacht designer Tony Castro is the ultimate toy for the extremely wealthy and has been dubbed the ‘Range Rover of the seas’.

It was designed to withstand any weather conditions and is sturdy enough to circumnavigate the globe – all while looking incredibly stylish, of course. When it comes to transporting all those extras any cruising millionaire needs to hand, there’s plenty of space for all of them.

The company explains: ‘With a large carrying capacity for toys and tenders, she is capable of carrying a helicopter in a climate controlled garage, twin limo tenders, car, submarine, jetskis, paddleboards and a variety of inflatables water toys.’

But of course, the life of the ultra-wealthy comes at a cost. According to Tony Castro Design, the superyacht costs approximately 40million euros (around £29million/$43million) to build, which means it is likely to cost even more to purchase.

While the yacht has been designed with ‘rugged utilitarian-looking aesthetics’, it is actually a sumptuous retreat at sea. For the 12 guests, there is space on the yacht for 15 crew, ensuring there is nothing always someone on hand to make sure the journey goes smoohtly.

The designers explain: ‘Her unique layout holds a full beam enclosed observation deck with opening roof, cinema, beach club, sauna, scuba diving pool, gymnasium, pool, wine cellar and ample space to accommodate a total of 12 guests.’

And of course, there are all the other luxurious finishing touches you would expect to find on board. The guests of honour can enjoy accommodation in the Master Cabin or VIP suite, while others can choose between four other double guest cabins.

There are also plenty of ‘terrace’ area, with sunloungers, giving the impression of sitting on the beach as the water laps the sands. In reality, the wooden areas just out into the sea with ladders down so guests can take a dip to cool off whenever they wish.

And the entire design is offset with panoramic windows offering views across the ocean.

Explore Singapore in an Uber supercar

Explore Singapore in an Uber supercar

In cities such as London and New York, the taxi app Uber has already radically altered the local transport network. In the former, black-cab drivers have blocked the streets in protest against the app; in the latter, Uber services are more prolific than the city’s iconic yellow cabs.

Now the service is set to make its mark on the roadways of Singapore too, but in an entirely different way. In place of the Priuses that are most associated with the service elsewhere, Uber users in the city can now have the option of booking supercars for their journeys.

Upon requesting “supercar” on the app, it will be possible for customers to request that either a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder or Maserati GranTurismo Coupe takes them to their destination. For now the cars are being made available on a trial basis, until May 20, in collaboration with local company Dream Drive.

Efficient though public transport options in the city are, the service is likely to prove popular with tourists who wish to explore the city in an unconventional way. The base fare to travel by Lamborghini is $200 (£100), which also covers the first 15 minutes of passengers’ journeys; a $7 (£3.50) charge will be applied for each additional minute in the car. For those travelling by Maserati, the base far is $165 (£82), which again includes the first 15 minutes of travel and is subject to an additional $7 charge per subsequent minute in transit.

World’s Fastest Supercars Brave Rain and Mud for Annual ‘Secret’ Meetup

World's Fastest Supercars Brave Rain and Mud for Annual 'Secret' Meetup

Owners of some of the world’s most sought-after supercars braved torrential rain and mud to show off their vehicles at an annual invitation-only event.

A Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition – one of only five in the world – were among the 200 high-performance cars on show at the ‘Secret Supercar Meet’, held at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and Proving Ground, Leicestershire.

The get-together, organised by supercar owners club Supercar Driver, raised nearly £5,000 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospital in Sheffield, which offers care and support to children with shortened life expectancy.

Event organiser Adam Thorby, owner of Supercar Driver, said it was a testament to the group’s members that the cars were on show despite the weather, which could potentially damage the vehicles.

He said: ‘The turnout from members was staggering considering the forecast which was heavy rain all day. You would be lucky to see any one of those cars out in the height of summer, let alone the full group in less than ideal conditions.

‘It is testament to our members who had committed to the event and have bought their cars to use them, whatever the weather.’

The fleet of vehicles, which boast a combined worth more than £20million, also included a Mercedes AMG 300SL that was custom made for the Sultan of Brunei.

Tesla’s Electric Supercar Has A Hidden ‘James Bond’ Mode

Tesla's Electric Supercar Has A Hidden 'James Bond' Mode

Elon Musk likes James Bond, so much so that he spent $1m on the famous Lotus Esprit that converts into a submarine.

Well to pay true homage to his favourite car the billionaire entrepreneur hid a rather special easter egg within the software for the Tesla Model S.

First buy a £49,900 Tesla Model S. Then press and hold the ‘Tesla’ button at the top of the giant display panel and you’ll be asked to enter an access code. Simply enter ‘007’ and then go to the Suspension settings page.

What was at one point a picture of your Model S is now a side view of the iconic Lotus. Oh and the ride height switch? That’s been changed to Depth (Leagues) of which there are two options for 10,000 or 20,000.

It goes without saying that this is all kinds of excellent. Tesla didn’t have to include the easter egg, in much the same way that the Model S sound system doesn’t have to go all the way up to ’11’ but it does, and that’s what matters.

Tesla aren’t the only company to include neat easter eggs in their products. Google’s Chromebook Pixel will delight you with a light show if you input the ‘Konami Code’ into the keyboard while Apple Maps in London now features a Big Ben that shows the real time and a London Eye that actually spins.

Best cheap supercars: half-price heroes

Best cheap supercars: half-price heroes

Alright, there’s really no such thing as a cheap supercar. Compare the used prices of some of the most desirable and powerful cars on the road with their showroom sticker, however, and they really do seem like bargains.

You don’t usually expect to see a price drop of over £60,000 for a car with less than 20,000 miles on the clock, but these supercars depreciate heavily – and that means big savings for used car buyers with the cash and commitment to run them…

Lamborghini Gallardo
Price new: £117,000
Model: Gallardo
Engine: 5.0-litre V10, 493bhp
CO2/road tax: 450g/km/£500
Economy: 14.5mpg
Price Now: £65,995 (2004/54-reg, 32k)

Despite its popularity when new, prices for the Gallardo are starting to harden, as buyers have realised this is a classic of the future. So snap up a bargain now, before it’s too late.

Ferrari 458
Price new: £178,551

CO2/road tax: 307g/km/£500
Economy: 21.2mpg
Price Now: £116,490 2010/10-reg, 11k

It’ll still set you back a significant sum, but at around the £120,000 mark, you’ll have plenty of used choice at just over 50 per cent of the list price. For one of the best Ferraris ever with a screaming 562bhp 4.5-litre V8, it’s an attractive proposition – just make sure you budget for running costs.

The 0-62mph sprint takes 4.3 seconds – impressive given the GT’s considerable weight – but you’d never know it, as it’s so refined. However, economy is poor, with around 15mpg on a cruise and less if you fully exploit the 602bhp engine.

Around £63,000 will buy you a well looked after standard 2009 Turbo with 493bhp at its disposal, allowing it to sprint from 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds. If you want even more oomph, then opt for the more powerful Turbo S model.

This product of a short-lived collaboration between Mercedes and McLaren still treads the line between visceral sports car and relaxed GT beautifully, and with second-hand values now hovering around £180,000, it could be a brilliant investment.

Middle East buyer snaps up 450th and final Bugatti Veyron supercar

Middle East buyer snaps up 450th and final Bugatti Veyron supercar

Volkswagen has sold the 450th and final Bugatti Veyron, marking the end of one of the most exclusive supercars ever built.

The last Veyron is an open-top Grand Sport Vitesse variant, which boasts 1,200 horsepower. The car, called La Finale, will be on display next week at the Geneva Motor Show. The 450 Veyrons were sold for an average price of about €2.3 million each, Bugatti said Monday in a statement.

“An unprecedented chapter in automotive history has reached its climax,” Bugatti president Wolfgang Duerheimer said in a statement. “Even 10 years after its market launch, the Veyron remains unique in many respects.”

The final Veyron was purchased by an unidentified customer from the Middle East. About half the cars were sold in Europe, and about a quarter were delivered in the US, according to Bugatti.

VW, the world’s second-largest automaker, is working on a new Bugatti supercar and is testing at least three different concepts for a successor to the Veyron, including one with an engine as much as 25 per cent stronger than the 1,200-horsepower motor of the Grand Sport Vitesse, people familiar with the plans said in October. VW design chief Walter de Silva has said the new Bugatti could be unveiled at the end of this year or early-2016 and will be “art.”

Like the Veyron, its successor will vie for the world’s most affluent car-buyers with the likes of Italy’s Pagani Automobili, McLaren’s street cars or Koenigsegg Automotive’s Agera model. The Swedish supercar specialist will present the Agera and a new “megacar” dubbed Regera in Geneva next week.

The Veyron set industry records not just for speed, but also for losing money, according to estimates from Max Warburton, a Singapore-based analyst for Sanford Bernstein. Including development costs, VW may lose €4.6m per vehicle on the Veyron, Mr Warburton said.

“The spending they have done on every little part of the car is totally crazy, but it’s also of course setting the agenda of the supercar, the hyper-car league,” Christian Brandt, chief designer at Danish supercar maker Zenvo Automotive, said in an interview.

“You need prestige projects like this to showcase technological excellence,” said Stefan Bratzel, director of the Center of Automotive Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. “Yes, it costs money, but it won’t cause VW any turbulence.”

Millionaire supercar owners caught smuggling cars to China for illegal road races

Millionaire supercar owners caught smuggling cars to China for illegal road races

A gang of 13 millionaire supercar owners who took their Ferraris, McLarens and Lamborghinis to China to take part in illegal races have been given suspended sentences after they sped along private roads at 160mph.

The gang – all men and aged between 36 and 62 –  crossed from Hong Kong to Shenzhen in southern China to stage the illegal race.

They reportedly told police they had travelled to China because the roads in Hong Kong were too narrow for racing.

Each was given a prison sentence of between one and six months, suspended for two years, at Bao’an District People’s Court after they admitted driving at 160mph on private roads. Other motorists reported their ‘sheer terror’ when they tore past.

Police seized 12 of the vehicles, which were stopped in November last year.

Van driver Wang Ho, 39, said: ‘I was doing about 100 kph (60mph) but they overtook me like I was standing still.’

He added: ‘My van literally shook when they went past me on both sides because of the speed they were doing.

‘They were going so fast their number plates were a blur.

‘I thought if they made even one small mistake at that speed they would kill me.’

Other motorists said it appeared the drivers ‘thought they were on a race track.’

The drivers have been fined around £70,000 and were warned by a judge they may not be so lucky next time.
