Some people lead lives far different from my own pedestrian affair with reality. Alex Lloyd answers the question we all have an answer for, if only in dreamland.
Question: I was thinking of giving my son my used Lamborghini as a first car. Is it a good idea? It is my used 2006 Murcielago from my collection.
Answer: If my dad had offered me a Lamborghini Murciélago as a first car I’d have been the happiest kid ever. I’d then have been the most injured kid ever followed by the most arrested.
True, that. But what’s the advice?
Needless to say, this really is a horrible idea. My advice: Stick with a car that’s sensible, practical — and above all else — safe. If you’ve got the cash, load it with all the safety tech available, like lane assist and emergency collision braking. Teach him the value of money so he can aspire to one day own his own Lamborghini, achieved through hard work and dedication.
