Lots of usual internet wankery around on this, I can't find truth one way or the other, I'm leaving it as likely kinda true.

Also note - here's a video from maybe a couple years earlier:

Don't know what to make of this. Not much of a reason to doubt that a kid as young as he is could actually make that sort of coin in this day and age. Apparently he's soon to star in a documentary series so we'll have to see what comes from that.

Gonna put my neck out on this one and call fake. I reckon it would have already made world news if he owned the 355 at 10. Im having a guess that they're his families and the family owns a workshop or dealership. Its awesome either way. If its true, that's great and if its fake, they've certainly got a lot of people talking and had a load of fun. I cant see any track days letting a 12 yr old or younger on the track in a Ferrari of any kind other than electric with a top speed of 6kmh.

I think it's fake, too.  I think this is all just a big joke between the kid and his dad/family and a joke on anyone gullible enough to believe them.

So it IS a Mini PP......      :p

Now you know why he "loved" the kid... he loves himself.  :)

The jig for me was up when he used the word "brung".  Errrr, knowing a few mathematical/computing genius types, by 12 they were on their way to university and not using a word such as "brung".

FWIW, of course a young kid can make a fortune in IT today... quite a few have, but those who have done so tend to get media coverage about those achievements for e.g.: http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/7755d5be-956b-11e2-a4fa-00144feabdc0.html

I don't see young Cameron on this list:

Good for a laugh, but that's the extent of it, I think.

If they were his cars why wouldnt they be parked together? They probably filmed it at a show and walked around picking the cars they wanted to claim and stood him next to them. Do we ever see him get into or touch the cars? Nope.
If you google him all you find is car forums talking about whether the story is real or not. They probably came up with the idea when he was 10 to try and make a viral video and decided it was time to try again.
