How exactly were you spending the free time between school classes and extracurricular activities at the age of nine? Yeah, same for us. But this kid is doing something different. His dad gave him the keys of his Mercedes-AMG C 63.
A nine-year old behind the steering wheel of a super potent car? It is a dream for the kid, but quite irresponsible, we’d dare say, considering that the little one is still lightyears away from getting his drivers’ license.
A film posted on YouTube went viral. The video is shot in California and shows the kid in the driver’s seat, with his father in the passenger seat, on his right. “It’s slightly illegal, but very entertaining”, says the one filming while the young boy gets the final recommendations. The video is accompanied by the disclaimer: “filmed in a safe location”. We’d dare add, if we may, “Don’t do this with your kids!”
Traction control off and there he goes. Sound on recommended.
The Mercedes-AMG C 63, then called C63 AMG, was introduced in 2008 to rival the BMW M3. Under the bonnet, there is the monstrous 6.2-liter V8 that sends around 500 horsepower to the rear wheels.
