Talking 12-year old Android App Developer who owns Three Ferraris!

Meet Callum, the overnight superstar 12-year-old who reportedly owns three Ferraris.

He happens to be an App Developer for Google and earned $8m when he was merely 10 and got his first Ferrari, a 355. Now, two years down the line, he has passed on the 355 to his father and has acquired two more, a 458 Spider and a 599 GTO.

Rest assured, Callum only drives his cars on private roads and racetracks.

Even though the news has brought him worldwide attention, itís still debated if he actually owns these cars or it's just a prank/hoax.

OMG!!

Very interesting

I also found the same news here:http://www.sickchirpse.com/12-year-old-with-ferraris/

Agree with these guys, that there is not even a mention of the app he sold to Google that earned him all this. Let's wait and watch as they are bringing out a whole documentary on this kid.

If this is indeed is what it looks like, the kid is really out of this world and further going by the way he describes his experiences of driving it around the kid seems genuinely true, but on the other hand the kid says he would like to buy a house and that makes your wonder that he thought of buying a house after he bought 3 Ferrari's.

In hindsight, maybe as Scorcher pointed out maybe it could be some rich family pulling off an elaborate hoax.

This one is definitely a hoax. There was a report on gtspirit.com as well .

Here's another link : http://www.drivespark.com/off-beat/y...tv-005038.html
