OGDEN (ABC4-News) – First he took his parents’ car, then 5-year-old Adrian Zamarripa was pulled over by Utah Highway Patrol for driving a little over 30mph on the interstate. Plus, he only had 3 dollars.
He was going to use that to buy a Lamborghini.
He wasn’t able to buy the posh supercar, but was able to get a ride in the car, twice!
The first time Adrian got to ride in a Lamborghini, he was picked up by Lamborghini Huracan owner Jeremey Neves, who was inspired because of the kid stealing the car, he thought he would take him for a ride in the supercar.
But now, because the story has charmed most of the public―which some say he should not have been rewarded for his actions―a celebrity luxury car dealer decided to fly him out to California.
He also talked with Shaq and Lil Pump on FaceTime, then was driven out to meet Jamie Foxx in real life.
Now, Adrian has had two rides in Lamborghinis since he decided to strike out on his own.
“I’m absolutely inspired by the principles that he displayed of success,” Neves said. “Knowing what he wants, going after it.” He caveated that with the following disclaimer, “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.”
Adrian’s parents are reportedly going to punish him for stealing their car. The Weber County District Attorney has said his parents won’t face charges for neglect.
