- A local man has offered a hefty reward for the recovery of his stolen Lamborghini
- The car was stolen on Tuesday, February 4, in Johannesburg, South Africa
- Social media users chipped in with their advice and a few sightings were reported
A South African man is offering R200,000 (N4.8m) for information about his Lamborghini Urus which was stolen in Johannesburg.
There are only a few of the vehicle type currently in the country. According to a hired private investigator, some people have reported spotting the car in Mozambique.
Team Trio Task Force took to Twitter earlier this week to report the incident and ask the public to keep an eye out for the white luxury car. The post also advertised a N4.8m reward for any information that would lead to the recovery of the car.
According to Wheels24, the incident took place in Bedfordview on Johannesburg's East Rand on Tuesday, February 4.
Jacaranda FM reports that private investigator, Anton Koen, who is working on the case, said that the vehicle was spotted in Mozambique.
Legit.ng gathers that Twitter user sydneyzet1 said:
"Already jumped the border."
"So this car really didn't have a tracker? Coz I know if it's taken by those Mozambique thugs they wouldn't remove it until it crosses the border."
"No way, it’s probably in a truck to Mozambique. No one will drive that car."
"Saw a Urus on Pietermaritzburg to Durban N3 on Wednesday at approximately 12h40 passing New England Road. Remember as I never saw a SUV Lambo ever before. Hope it helps."
"I saw a white Urus in Bloemfontein on Monday. I didn't think Bloemfontein even had a Lamborghini let alone a new Urus."
"My wife saw one this afternoon as on the picture, white... no number plates... travelling high speed... Location: M4 north-bound turning of at uMhlanga off-ramp at 17:15."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Deniz Torun, the acclaimed owner of a rental Lamborghini car which was stolen in Switzerland and spotted in Ghana via Instagram pictures, said he was optimistic of getting back his car.
Torun is the owner of Luxus Car, a luxury car rental company based in Zurich, Switzerland.
He said he rented out the car to a young man with Ghanaian passport in June 2019. However, the alleged Ghanaian failed to return the car and reportedly upgraded, or deactivated the GPS, making it difficult for the owner to track it.
