A businessman could not believe his eyes when a teenager posted a picture of himself jumping up and down on his brand new £245,000 sports car.
The owner, who did not want to be identified, had just got his McLaren Spider back from repair work in Birmingham when he decided to go for some dinner in Port Talbot.
Despite deliberately choosing a window seat in view of the car, the man, from Camarthen in Wales, failed to see a boy go up to it and jump up and down on the bonnet.
The not-so-smart lad posted a picture of himself jumping on the car on Facebook – and the businessman was promptly sent it by a friend.
‘It was a little bit disappointing to say the least,’ said the man.
‘I’ve only just had it back as well.
The lad, who posted the picture under the name Kane Reynolds, has since deleted his Facebook account.
‘I’m waiting to send him a nasty solicitor’s letter,’ said the businessman.
‘The repair is going to cost a lot of money – with these cars everything costs, unfortunately.’
