A Brazilian businessman has decided to bury his $500,000 Bentley
So tomorrow, he will entomb his brand new Bentley Continental worth over $500,000 to make sure he has a comfortable journey into the ‘other side’. The funeral ceremony, he promises, will be at 11am.
His Bentley is his prized possession, so he’s burying it, inspired by the Egyptian Pharaohs, in the hope of having it in his afterlife.
In a photo on his social network site Count Scarpa stands beside his black Flying Spur, the latest model on the market, with a cockatoo on his arm and writes: ‘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!!!’
The self-made businessman, who has a degree in economics,a black belt instructor and owner of the Institute Maruyama Aikido, which is a Japanese martial arts academy, says that his decision to start storing up his treasures for the life beyond came after watching a programme on Ancient Egypt on Sunday.
‘I was watching a documentary about the pharaohs of Egypt, very interesting. They buried his entire fortune to have a comfortable life “the other side”!’ he says.
