Bit pathetic though reading that.

At the end of the day you need money to make money.

It says 'at 11 he sold his first car a 911'.

Ok so where does an 11 year old get the money to buy a 911 to sell on?

you get what I'm saying. Fair play to him, but without his families obvious fortune already - he wouldn't of made the money he did - especially not before 18.

Im sure his old mna bought him a 911 and he sold that and it went from there.
There was a programme years ago on him, when he was 14 and selling all sorts of cars but couldnt drive them!

He paid like 20k insurance on his first car as well

After reading the whole article it shows how easy it can be too. It says with Ferrari 430's going for more than 40k over list price So per one they sell, they're pocketing 40k - providing you've got the capital to buy the stock, it's easy money.

Nope,
and if you had a company website would you go boasting it off with a report that doesnt say a bad word against you??

persoanlly business is business for me and i would prefer a classy site with the cars and not much about me!

I bet in person hes a class 1 dickhead

Fair enough hes the uk youngest self made millionaire.

There is no way on earth he saved for that 911 himself at 11 years old and so on

Cause of thier reputation as well they get first dibs on new lines, so they could get a DB9 before anyone else in the UK, then they bump more cash on top and people will pay for it to be one of the first to own one

jim what an idea i'd be the valeter and use my massive wanking muscle to polish cars

BTW if alot of people had the capital (i.e. a 911 ) they could start things moving pretty easily.

he made 5m on commission, he didnt personally take the profit from the sold cars so he didnt buy them either.

Good on him as he obviously knows how to sell (although I doubt its hard when its invitation only as the customers are going there with money to buy!). Personally with 5m in my back pocket I would of preferred to branch out on my own, would be more risky and hard work but alot more satisfying when you made it work...plus his dads business or cash will be his one day anyway!!

Agreed, I would only be interested in starting something to do with cars though and selling those is the pinnacle really, maybe a racing school though

I can't wait to do this when i win the lottery
