MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Wisconsin teenager’s holiday was made in Minnesota Friday when her dad brought her to an exotic car community where she was able to take rides in Lamborhginis and Ferraris.

Maddy Wagner is autistic and she’s enamored with cars. Her father, Richard Wagner, convinced Bruno Silikowski, the man behind Auto MotorPlex in Chanhassen, Minn., to let his daughter ride along in a high-performance car.

But Silikowski didn’t stop at just one.

“[Maddy’s] dream in life is to become a test car driver for Lamborghini, so her father had asked… to see who might be able to give this girl at least a small ride in a car,” Silikowski said. “We thought about it and we thought instead of just one, let’s give her a whole bunch of opportunities.”

Wagner got in contact with Silikowski over Craigslist and the result was Maddy’s ride of a lifetime.

Maddy hopes to get her driver’s license in two years, but her Dad told her she’ll be driving the family minivan.
