The baby lion just stepped up his game in a big way. While his brothers and sisters are locked up in a zoo, he's living like a celebrity. We wonder if Timon the meerkat and Pumba the warthog also have their own luxury vehicles.
If you really think about it, having a lion in your house is way more excessive than owning a supercar. Most Lamborghini or Ferrari owners only do about 5000 kilometers per year, so fuel bills aren't that big of a problem. But the cub will grow up into a 200 kg (440 lb) monster that devours up to 40 kilos (90 lbs) of raw meat per day.
A second hand Porsche Carrera GT usually retails for around half a million euros or $570,000. Power comes from 5.7-liter DOHC V10 engine producing a respectable 612 HP. The supercar is very light and has a reputation for being tricky to control at the limit, just like a lion.
Oh, and in case you're curious, lion cubs are actually pretty cheap. We've found various websites that sell them for around $2,000 (€1,800) or even less.
