Brett David has a pretty darn good life. At 26 years old, he's the CEO of Prestige Imports in Miami, which puts him at the wheel of the largest Lamborghini dealership in the US. Prestige also happens to have moved more Audis than any other dealer in three years.

CNBC's Squawk Box had him on for a sitdown in a segment it called "Secret Lives of the Super Rich," where the network highlighted the burgeoning demand for Lamborghinis. Besides talking about the recession-proof Lambo market and his new-age clientele, David explained how he sold his first Lamborghini. At 17. To Missy Elliot. The whole video is really worth a watch, which you can do by scrolling down.

      Well he inherited his father's lambo dealership in 2007, but he's def got flare for creative marketing.

      Ouch! I'm older and less successful than this gentleman, but I am in no way envious of him, nor will I take away his achievements. Yes it appears he had a family in, but you know what, he did a masterful job with it. There are plenty of idiot trust fund punks out there who throw away fortune on girls and drugs, but this guy has been able to keep the dealership a success. I didn't realize how hostile people are towards high-income earners. Insecurity.

      People who slam other people for inheriting things - just remember you inherited life. Some parents just give life, others give life and more. Don't be mad at your parents, at least you're alive.

      He sells Lamborghinis and can't even pronounce "Gallardo". He's nothing more than an average used car salesman that happens to sell expensive cars.

        Although the "official" pronunciation is GUY-YAR-DO, it is accepted to say it the other way, just as Porsche and Porshe-a

          It is only "accepted" in the US because you don't speak any other languages and you can't pronounce anything right in a language other than English.

      Wait, dude ownes the biggest Lamborghini dealership in the country, and he still pronounces the Gallardo "GAL-LAR-DO"? Come on dude, it's "GUY-YAR-DO" and there ARE still manual versions of it for sale. You should hand the keys of that dealership over to someone more qualified.

        "You should hand the keys of that dealership over to someone more qualified." - what other semi-wit suggestions do you have? And yea ou didn't read the article - he's the CEO of the largest Lamborghini dealership in the US. He can pronounce Gallardo as "GO-EF-YO-SELF" and he's going to be right...

        He just needs to have salespeople that know the cars well. As the owner, he himself only needs to be able to market his dealership and the cars to their intended customers.

        Dealership owners don't NEED to have much product knowledge, and many probably don't, BUT if they choose to talk to the media and answer specific questions about makes/models they sell I think it is important that they be able to speak intelligently.

      Not particularly impressive considering the dealership was basically given to him. Now if you told me he grew up in the hood and was raised by a single mother to eventually become the CEO of a major dealership at age 26, then I\'d be picking my jaw off the floor.

      It's a great dealership. I stopped by there for the first time just last month, and they have a gorgeous Shelby Cobra in some sexy metallic silver. My partner recently purchased his first Audi (SQ5) from him as well. Good too see young dudes doing well.

      It sounds like he's an aggressive and talented operator, but there's nothing impressive about being a dealer principle at 26 years old when your frigging dad gave you the dealership. You could be a dealer principle at the age of six if your dad gave you the dealership.

        Principal. Not "principle". But yes I agree, lucky man.

      Wow... Amazing for all of you to comment negatively without even knowing Brett. I have known him for over 10 years and you "trust fund" commenters are not only wrong, you are the douche bags... If anyone out there thinks that being handed the keys to one of the most recognized Audi and Lamborghini dealers in the world, then breaking all the sales records set by your father is an easy task, I would love for you to give it a try. Brett worked his ass off to get him self prepared to take over the family business and not only did he succeed, he surpassed everyone's expectations. Like all car dealers there are bumps along the way, but three years in a row as the top Audi Sales dealer in the country, and consistently one of the top Lamborghini dealers in the world, is not something your trust fund can manage for you. I invite everyone to do their research, and give some credit to a guy that has literally worked himself till he was hospitalized to make this a success. If he had no talent, his world would have crashed and burnt by now. No amount of "drug trade $, booming economies, or cheap Lambo (whatever that is)" can account for the success. Why not give some credit to a guy under 30 making it work. Guys like Brett will help shape the face of the auto industry in years to come, better be on his good side.

        Majority of autoblog community are insecure and envious of other people's success. Someone sees success and then tries to degrade it the best they can. Why do you think Miley Cirus is so popular? Thick skulled audience, kind of like the audience we got on here.

        I can tell from the interview that he is knowledgeable, passionate and above all a great sales person. He definitely has the skills regardless of his background.

      I am so JEALOUS! 26 years old, lives in Miami and gets to sell and drive Lamborghinis. I bet he "meets" alot of HOT women.

      Smart guy for sure, BUT he obviously had a family connection, so that takes all the air out of it. There's lots of Brett Davids out there, working low pay jobs because no one gives them the opportunity to shine.

        And it's up to that "Brett David" to take the initiative and move on if no one will recognize his talents. Who cares if he got a lucky break, it happens. In the video he quoted his own father that "he didn't believe anyone would buy a car from a 17 year old."
