Daredevil Jorge Gill, 19, got onto a wakeboard and grabbed hold of a rope attached to a bright yellow Ferrari F50.

The driver of the 202mph Ferrari - a mid-90s motor regarded as a road-legal F1 car - then accelerated off on the open road as Jorge held on for dear life.

Jorge, the two-time European wakeboarding champion, hurtled along the river as the Ferrari hit what claims to be speeds of 84mph.

The film was shot in Lincolnshire by TaxTheRich, a secretive group of petrolheads known for making extraordinary car videos.

In the past they have thrashed a Rolls-Royce around a country estate while also taking a Ferrari Enzo rallying.

The Tax The Rich YouTube page only has 15 videos on it, but they have racked up a staggering 34.8 million views.

But this is the first time a Ferrari, worth around #1 million, has taken a back seat in one of the group’s videos.

Jorge, from North London, became an internet sensation earlier this year when he wakeboarded through a flooded car park in Guildford.

The adrenaline junkie, who is also a five-time national champion, had the idea for his latest stunt while travelling through Europe.

He said: “I was on a mini-bus in Portugal when the idea came to me as a supercar flew past the bus and next to it was a river.

“The idea clicked, combining a supercar with wakeboarding seemed very unique to me. I then spoke to the guys who have the cars and they loved the idea and took control. Within a few weeks the idea became a reality.

“I was a little nervous beforehand. Normally I do around 20mph but for this I was going a lot faster.

“We had a few warm ups at lower speed and it was a bit scary when you hear the Ferrari’s engine.

“It is dangerous, but you have to put forget about the dangerous side until afterwards. When we did it at full speed it was fine. It went perfectly.”

At the end of the run the teenage wakeboarder goes under water and can be heard on his camera saying ‘that was fast’.

“The video shows the championship wakeboarder being pulled along the water at speeds of 84mph,” said a police spokesman.

“Our officers are currently examining the footage to determine what offences have been committed.”

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman told The Standard: “Officers are examining the footage to determine if any offences have been committed.”
