A teenage joyrider has been killed after stealing and crashing his father's powerful Mercedes in a high-speed police chase.
Rambo Osmanovic, 16, was driving the Mercedes E270 at speeds of up to 130mph when he lost control as he tried to outrun a police patrol.
The car veered off the road and crashed into a lamppost in Hyde, Greater Manchester.
The schoolboy was thrown through the windscreen and pronounced dead at the scene.
His businessman father, Moso Marinkovic, is said to be inconsolable after his death.
The incident happened in the early hours after Rambo took his father's 155mph saloon.
He was spotted by police racing a Subaru in Coach Street, Mottram, near Manchester.
The Subaru sped off but the Mercedes stopped on Hyde Road. But when the officer got out of his patrol car the Mercedes sped off.
Police pursued the Mercedes onto the M67 before losing sight of it as it left the motorway at junction 3.
The officer found the luxury car had crashed into a lamppost at the junction of Fernally Street and Clarendon Place in Hyde.
Another person who was also in the car was taken to Tameside Hospital for treatment to his injuries, which are not thought to be life threatening.
He has since been arrested on suspicion of taking a car without consent.
Osmanovic had, 24 hours earlier, been arrested for taking a vehicle without consent and bailed pending further enquiries.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission has launched an investigation into the crash.
Chief Inspector Haydn Roberts, from the Traffic Network Section, said: "Tragically a young boy has died as a result of the collision.
"I am eager to speak to anyone who knows of the whereabouts of the Subaru or who has any information about who may have been in the car."
