A RICH businessman has decided to bury his £310,000 Bentley in his back yard so he can drive it in the afterlife.…
The Brazilian entrepreneur, known as Count Scarpa, surprised many after revealing he was going through with the bizarre ritual in Sao Paulo in order to mimic the pharaohs of Egypt who took their riches with them when they died.
‘I decided to do as the pharaohs: this week I will bury my favourite car, the Bentley here in the home garden! Bury my treasure in my palace rssss !!!’, the enigmatic 62-year-old wrote on his Facebook page.
But he now claims he was actually trying to bring to attention the problem of people not donating their organs.
He later wrote on the social network: ‘I buried my car, but everyone thought it was absurd when I said I was going to do that.
‘Absurd is bury their organs, which could save many lives. Nothing is more valuable. Be a donor, tell your family.’
