According to local media reports, the Swiss businessman’s son parked the vehicle outside a massage parlour and went in for a massage as an alibi.
His three accomplices – aged between 20 and 30 then torched the car where it was parked .
Witnesses said they had seen men tampering with the car and a police investigation was launched
But security cameras captured the whole incident and police eventually arrested the three men and the young Ferrari owner.
The wealthy 20-year-old posted bail to free himself from custody and has now been handed a 22-month probation period.
The judge sentenced him to 22 months probation and a €21,500 fine.
