A Lamborghini Aventador mobile was caught on fire at a parking lot in Pavilion Residences, Bukit Bintang. The incident reportedly happened yesterday (Sunday, 28th June) morning.
According to Director Of Operations Mohd Rozi Jusoh, the team received an emergency call at 2:40am. After that, they immediately sent 14 firefighters along with 2 fire engines from the Pudu Fire Department with the help of Jalan Tun Razak rescue team to the scene.
“It took us a few minutes to put out the fire. In this case, about 40% of the car’s front part had been burnt. But the incident didn’t involve the victim. In the meantime, the cause of the fire is still under investigation,” Rozi told Sinar Harian. However, the police didn’t rule out the possibility that the incident might have been a treacherous crime.
An insider told Harian Metro, “A CCTV footage showed two masked men in their helmets throwing what appeared to be a bottle of gasoline towards the mobile before it burst into flames.” He further claimed that the forensic team has found the bottle, with the remains of the liquid as well as a box of match sticks nearby the vehicle.
The anonymous source also revealed that the car belongs to a wealthy tycoon who owned a business in Langkawi. As a result of the damage, the owner of the yellow supercar has suffered an estimated value of up to RM1 million loss.
