Lak Sira might be one of the UK’s youngest self-made millionaires, but lately he hasn’t been lucky with his golden fleet of cars.
Only a couple of months ago the 22-year-old was left devastated when his £125,000 gold Lamborghini went up in flames just an hour after picking it up from the car shop.
And now it’s his gold Porsche that’s been given the makeover he didn’t ask for – someone has spray painted “wanker” across the side and “shit” on the front.
Businessman Lak Sira, parked his £80,000 Porsche Panamera car in Knightsbridge thinking it would be safe in the posh west London borough. But alas, someone just couldn’t resist pulling the can out and defacing his prized possession. Taking to Instagram, the businessman posted a picture of the paint job alongside the caption: “I can’t believe someone did this man.”
I can! After all this is London we’re talking about. Doesn’t matter if you’re East or West, if you have a gold car then you’re asking for trouble.
Poor Lak has had a right time of it lately.
Just a few months ago, he was gutted when his £125,000 Lamborghini Gallardo burst into the flames on the motorway – after he’d just paid £10,000 for a service at Lamborghini Birmingham and £12,000 for the gold coating.
He was on his way to London when he smelt petrol and was forced to pull over on the M6 hard shoulder near Birmingham. After hearing a loud bang, he and his girlfriend jumped from the car, only to see it burst into flames. Fire crews were called to extinguish the flames, leaving the burned wreckage.
But before you start getting your tiny violins out, don’t feel too sorry for the guy. He currently earns upwards of £200,000 per year running an online trade company and he’s only in his early 20s. Even if he can’t get the graffiti off he’ll probably just get a fresh new Porsche – although hopefully he invests in a car cover next time.
