County troopers in Weber stopped a child, 5 years, on Monday after they spotted him driving for several kilometres down Interstate 15, the Utah Highway Patrol said.
They initially mistook the boy for an impaired driver, but soon discovered he was a child with a love for luxury sports.
The boy allegedly told police he left his home after getting into an argument with his parents, who refused to buy him a Lamborghini.
Since his parents refused, he decided to steal his parent’s car and drive to California and buy one for himself, police said.
“He might have been short on the purchase amount, as he only had $3 in his wallet,” troopers said on Twitter.
Their tweet included a photo of the boy in a grey hooded sweatshirt and patterned shorts, wringing his hands in the driver’s seat of his parents’ car.
