The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren cost around $500,000 when new, but Czech soccer player Tomáš Řepka decided to save a little cash on his and buy one used.
Like any excited owner of a new hypercar, he hired a model, Vlaďka Erbová, and did a bikini photo shoot with his new car.
The photos were popular, and a lot of people saw them. Unfortunately for Tomáš, one of those people was the other owner of the Mercedes!
Turns out, a Middle East sheikh owned the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, until it was stolen from him, transported to Europe, and then sold to Tomáš Řepka on the grey market.
The car was impounded by the Czech police, and currently sits in a Czech impound yard, wasting away like a long-forgotten hooptie while the courts decide its fate.
