Pays accomplices to do the dirty work.
For most of us, the dream of driving a true supercar is something so intangible that we wouldn't know how to react if we were handed the keys to one. But when your daddy has already bought you 15 cars – including a Lamborghini and Ferrari – by the time you're 20 years old, it seems that your limitless options just become way too confining. Otherwise, how would you explain this insane story coming from the Swiss-German border? The young man decided that he was tired of his Ferrari 458 Italia but was too embarrassed to ask dad for a new one.
The solution, according to reports, was to pay three accomplices $15,000 to steal his car, drive it across the German border, and burn it. All the while, the owner was killing time at a local massage parlor. Unfortunately for the schemers, the plan was foiled by security cameras that caught the arson in action, eventually leading police back to the car's owner. Despite a $10,000 monthly allowance from his father, a self-portfolio of $30 million and a collection of supercars, the young man told the court that his funds had run dry and he "was not brave enough to tell his father he did not like the Ferrari". He was sentenced to 22 months' probation and given a fine of $32,000.
