An 11-year old boy, diagnosed with Leukaemia, realised his dream when he was offered the opportunity to experience a Ferrari at a race track.

According to KCCI News, Caleb Hammond's original wish was for race stickers for his coffin but instead, a Ferrari dealership in Florida gave him the chance to experience a $3-million race car.

A dying wish come true

It was a day to remember for Caleb as he sat passenger in a Ferrari 488 Challenge race car driven by Jody Coenen where the car reached a speed of 325km/h. The driver also performed a few donuts much to the boy's delight.
