not really but that's beside the point.

These are clearly all sons of wealthy fathers who are using dad's money to play, but I have no problem with it.

The first guy they featured said he was a student as some gulf university (24 years of age). None of these people are self-made.

My dad for example would be classified as a "middle class" millionaire. Nowhere near as much wealth as what we saw in this video, but still enough (his liquid net worth's around $4M right now) to buy "middle class" luxury cars (BMW/Merc/Lexus/Audi) outright for my younger brother and myself.

Most people might call me spoiled but I don't think that term really applies. It has an unwarranted negative connotation attached to it. "Spoiled" is when you are pampered but don't really appreciate it. I can assure you I appreciate every bit of financial support (more like excess) I've received over the years.

If I had $1B or $100M, I'd have no problem buying my 24 or 25 year old son a Lamborghini or something. Life's too short.

You'd probably be ensuring that his life is indeed too short.

Yeah that's a great point. I wouldn't give my 16-18 year old son a sports car for this very reason.

But by 24-25 most people are mature enough to handle that the kind of responsibility that comes with driving a high HP sports car. This why insurance rates typically plummet once men hit 25 years of age.

Then again, most of the guys in the video were in their early to mid 20s and they still showed poor judgment on the road, so it's a tough call. Maybe I'd wait till my son/daughter was 28-30. Or maybe I'd install some kind of speed/GPS monitoring device.

Anyways it's a moot point because realistically I'll never be in any sort of position to buy my children a Lambo or a Ferrari, etc.

I knew I should have watched this video when it was posted, but I was busy doing something else. Now it has been taken off YouTube. Damn.

Begs the question if ya got all that money why take an exotic car to a city with the worst frickin traffic. Why not take it to the south of Spain or the Algarve coast in Portugal? They've got tracks which you could rent out and still go clubbing, plus better looking women in Barcelona and way better roads to drive on.

Because London is considered one of the top cities in the world. I've lived there before and it's overrated tbh. But for the most part, ppl just want to go there.
