A rich Arab has caused uproar after reportedly putting his Lamborghini on a 6,500-mile round trip to Britain — for an oil change.
The $376,000 supercar was put on a flight from Qatar to Heathrow Friday before being flown back after the service, the U.K.'s Sun newspaper reported Thursday.
The transport of the Murciélago LP640 – driven by Batman in "The Dark Knight" — would have cost the owner — believed to be a Sheikh — about $40,000, the paper reported.
The move sparked fury from employees at Heathrow.
“This car doesn’t have a carbon footprint — more of a crater,” one airport worker told the paper.
The overall cost of sending the black-and-gold supercar to London for the oil change would have cost more than $45,000, The Sun reported.
On Monday, the vehicle was flown back to Qatar.
