Five-year-old driving to buy sports car pulled over by police

A five-year-old boy with $3 in his pocket was pulled over by police in the US, while driving his parent's car to buy a Lamborghini.

Five-year-old driving to buy sports car pulled over by police

A five-year-old boy with $3 in his pocket was pulled over by police in the US, while driving his parent's car to buy a Lamborghini.

The boy was driving the family SUV from his home in Utah to California, after arguing with his mother who said she would not buy the luxury car for him, Utah Highway Patrol said on Twitter.

A highway officer spotted the vehicle weaving on Interstate 15 at 50km/h, the Utah Highway Patrol said.

Authorities told CNN affiliate KSL-TV they initially thought the boy was an impaired driver.

"How old are you? You're five-years-old?" Trooper Rick Morgan says in dash camera footage of the traffic stop.

"Wow - Where did you learn to drive a car?"

Officer Morgan told KSL-TV he had to help the child get the SUV into park.

"He was sitting on the front edge of the seat so that he could reach the brake pedal to keep the car stopped while I was standing there," he said.

Once he was pulled over, the child told the trooper he had intended to drive to California to purchase a Lamborghini for himself. He had $3.

The starting price for a new Lamborghini is around AU$310,000.

Officer Morgan says no one was hurt, and it will be up to the local prosecutor to decide whether to file charges against the parents, who had left the boy in his sibling's care while they were away from home.
