A dream, a crime, a punishment, a reward

In early May, Utah police reported pulling over a five-year-old boy who was driving his family’s car to California to buy a Lamborghini. A few days later, he was offered a ride in a real Lamborghini and was grounded.

Adrian Zamarripa made headlines after he had an argument with his mom when she told him that she wouldn't buy him a Lamborghini. Not willing to take no for an answer, he decided to go buy the car himself with $3 in his pocket and feet that barely reached the pedals.

Zamarripa only made it about four miles away from his home before Utah Highway Patrol pulled him over, assuming he was an impaired driver.

No one was hurt, but the boy was grounded for the stunt and assigned more chores.

A local entrepreneur Jeremy Neves saw the story on local news and wanted to cheer the boy up by offering him the chance to ride in his black, two-seater Huracan.

“Maybe he’s getting punished, maybe he’s grounded, maybe he’s got some chores to do. I can relate to that,” Neves told the Deseret News. “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.’”
