Mum splashes £43k on a brand new Mercedes for her nine-year-old daughter – and reckons her critics are just jealous

A MUM has sparked outrage after buying her nine-year-old daughter a real Mercedes Benz car. 

Australian businesswoman Roxy Jacenko, 40, splashed out an eye-watering $84,500 AUD (around £46,000) on the luxury vehicle for daughter Pixie, who is obviously too young to legally drive. 

The PR guru said she bought the extravagant motor for its “extra safety features.”

Speaking to, she said: “It's of utmost importance to me that both she and her brother Hunter travel safely on the roads when going to and from school so I purchased a car for her.

“Obviously she doesn’t drive it, she is driven in it as is her brother to and from school and for any activities.

“Given the number of fatalities on our roads their safety is so important so if it means buying a car that has extra safety features that’s what I’ll do.”

Roxy has been slammed after sharing a photo of the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class on Instagram. 

She showed the car being serviced, with the caption: “Visits today from the finautofinishing for Pixie’s car.”

One shocked social media wrote: “Seriously? A car for someone who can’t drive for how many years.”

Another added: “Please tell me this is a stitch up! It has to be!”

A third asked: “How can a child have a car?”

However, some people defended Roxy, with one saying: “Sorry but I absolutely ADORE the fact that Pixie has a car.”

According to, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC250 prices range from $67,000 (£36,000) to $84,700 (£46,000).

Roxy, who has a number of successful businesses including Sweaty Betty PR, shares Pixie with husband Oliver Curtis, who she married in 2012. 

The couple are also parents to six-year-old Hunter, and live in a $6.6million (£3.6m) mansion in Sydney. 

Although she is nine, Pixie also has her own hair accessories range with her mum called Pixie’s Bows.
