Five-Year-Old Who Stole Parents Car Is Given Ride In Lambo
Remember the little lad who got caught driving his parents' car on his way to buy a Lamborghini, well the five-year-old has been given a ride in the real thing.
Adrian Zamarripe was pulled over by Monday by State Trooper Rick Morgan, who noticed the SUV driving erratically on a freeway in Utah, to be told he just wanted to go but a Lamborghini. Same, mate.
The incredible story caught the attention of people all over the world, and one of those people was Jeremy Neves, fellow Lamborghini fan and actual owner of one of the supercars. He felt like he should give the kid what he was so desperate for, after his mum had told him she wouldn't buy him one. Tight, I know.
Neves said: "He had the courage to just go after what he wanted, you know? He didn't have the skill set, let alone the size to drive a vehicle, and he figured it out.
"Maybe he's getting punished, maybe he's grounded, maybe he's got some chores to do. I can relate to that. At the same time, I thought it would be really cool to say: 'Your dreams aren't as far away as you think they are'.
Speaking to KSLTV, Neves added that he does understand the behaviour was reckless.

He said: "Absolutely, I'm not encouraging kids to go out and take their parents' car, and do anything else that's illegal. I'm not advocating that at all.
"I'm absolutely inspired by the principles that he displayed of success; knowing what he wants, going after it."
We would like to at this stage confirm that going after your dreams should never involve risking a lot of people's lives and breaking multiple laws - but you can kind of see where Neves is coming from.
In footage caught by a dashcam, Trooper Rick Morgan can be seen asking: "How old are you? You're five years old? Wow... Where did you learn to drive a car?"
The kid, who was sat right on the very edge of the seat so his little legs could reach the pedals, began to cry when he saw the cop
After little Adrian was found on Monday, the trooper told a news conference: "I hit my siren and the car did immediately pull over the left. I approached the vehicle and I was expecting to find somebody who needed an ambulance or paramedics.
"And it was pretty clear when the window came down that it was a young, very underage driver."
The offers are still coming through for the young Lambo fan though, with a company in California even offering to fly him out to see some up close.
