Lamborghini "FANATIC," Jacob's father, Nick Stern, reached out to the Italian supercar builder on Facebook asking them to help make his son's dream a reality. And in the words of Lamborghini, "How could we say no to that?"Jacob had a dream. And like many kids, it involved fast cars. As a
On April 20, Stern was planning a small party for Jacob's seventh birthday and asked if there were any owners that might make an appearance, let him sit in the car, or perhaps even take his son for a brief spin around the block. The plea goes as follows:
"Hi, I'm hoping someone with a kind heart will help me. My Son is 7 on 20th April, we're having small party for him. He is a Lamborghini FANATIC. He works hard at school so he get 100% in tests, so I give him $10 which he saves towards his Lamborghini. So far his dream has cost me $400! I know it would be a dream come true for him to be able to sit in Lamborghini or get a short drive in one. His birthday party is in Hancock park at our home. Are there any Lamborghini owners who would like to make a 7 year old believe in dreams?"
On a beautiful Saturday morning in Los Angeles, while Jacob was celebrating his birthday with his friends, a fleet of Lamborghinis roared down the street to join the party – including the famous matte black Aventador festooned in Batman logos, dubbed "Batventador."
With well over a million dollars worth of cars on hand, including multiple 700 hp V-12 Aventadors and a few Gallardos, Jacob received his wish, while his friends could only shriek, "You're so lucky," as he climbed aboard the $400,000 Lamborghini, capable of sprinting to 60 mph from a standstill in just 2.9 seconds.
