Young drivers are the most dangerous on the roads. Crash statistics continually point to teenagers being amongst the most reckless and most likely to get into an accident. But what about pre-teen drivers? With no experience – or even the ability to reach the pedals in most cases – surely they must be even worse?
Not according to this video, which supposedly shows a young boy piloting a powerful Jaguar XJ220 around a private country estate, by remote control no less. It’s quite obviously staged, but it’s a good excuse to see such a rarefied piece of exotica being driven as its maker intended.
The film is the creation of ‘Tax the Rich’ – a secretive collection of car nuts, who’ve previously risen to Internet fame by releasing videos of both a Ferrari Enzo and a Rolls-Royce Phantom, amongst a collection of other supercars, being used in, erm, rather inappropriate situations.
