"On the dark highway, he didn't get along so well at [140 kilometres per hour] and drove the vehicle to a parking lot".

The boy's mother reported him missing at 1.15 am in the morning after she woke up and found both him and her Volkswagen Golf missing.

"Fortunately", the caption reads translated from German to English, "after the ride, there [was] no damage to persons or property".

He said he had been behind the wheel of go-karts and bumper cars before, but this was his first shot at the real deal - complete with automatic transmission.
