Last summer, Daddy bought him a Dufour 36 sail and a fiberglass runabout for puttering around the harbor. The four-hundred horses he attached to the stern of the small boat sent it straight to Davy Jones’ locker.
This summer, Daddy gifted him a 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider. Cost: two-hundred-and-seventy big ones. On his maiden voyage, he made 0 to 62 in three seconds then tried for the top speed of 198.
No race car driver, he wrapped it around a tree. A live power line was cut. It fell and snaked around his neck.
According to witnesses, the fireworks were spectacular.
