Recently, it has become a trend for people to flaunt their lifestyle and newly purchased cars and SUVs on social media platforms. Some are going the extra mile by making videos of themselves taking delivery of their prized possessions and uploading them to social media to garner likes. We came across one such video in which a youngster was seen taking delivery of a Mercedes-Benz GLS. While the video appears normal, the reason why it is attracting attention and flak from netizens is shocking.
In the video, the person taking delivery of the black-colored Mercedes-Benz GLS 400 is a young boy named Srinivas Reddy. The boy is seen taking delivery of the flagship Mercedes-Benz SUV from an authorized dealer outlet in Hyderabad accompanied by his bodyguards, but not any other family member. The video shows the boy completing the formalities of buying his new SUV before taking the delivery and driving it out of the showroom.

Social media users trolling the boy
Many netizens are trolling the young boy for taking delivery of a large and expensive SUV like the Mercedes-Benz GLS, questioning his worth and eligibility for such a big-ticket purchase. The video was uploaded by the social media accounts of the Mercedes-Benz dealership in Hyderabad, and in no time, it started getting negative comments from many people trolling the boy.
One of the comments claimed that the “Boy looks too young” while the another one added that it was his father or grandfather who got the car for him and he should stop showing off. Various comments were related to the age of the boy and how young he looks.
Some netizens are questioning whether the boy purchased the SUV or if it was gifted to him by his father or grandfather. Others doubt whether he is eligible to even drive a car, as he appears to be still in his teenage years. Given that the minimum age limit for obtaining a driving license is 18, some are claiming that he is still too young to obtain a license.
The SUV purchased by the boy shown in the video is a Mercedes-Benz GLS 400d, the diesel variant of the seven-seater SUV from the German marque. Priced at Rs 1.29 crore, the GLS 400d is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-six diesel engine, which claims 326 bhp of power and 700 Nm of torque, paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission.
