Doubt it's a gift. Agents don't give 90k sports cars to mid round college kids who have yet to be drafted.
Unless Vic makes a big move up the draft board he'll be making rookie minimum and that car would represent more than 20% of 1 years pay before taxes. So yes it would be a dumb purchase.
Maybe his new agent rented it for him for the night but no way he gave Vic a car. The car is worth more than the commission the agent will see from Vic's rookie deal.
