Scary stuff! I read about the accident a few days ago.
Thats what happens when rich kids get behind the wheels of a car that has way too much power for even an experienced driver to struggle at times.
May their souls rest in peace.

I wouldn't call him that! A car enthusiast understands his machine and cares for it. This kid did neither. I'd say he was just a pampered kid having fun at his parent's expense with total disregard for the safety of people around him.

Basically he needed to grow up a bit - sad that he won't anymore....

The M5 is a larger and more powerful and faster car than an M3 right?
