It’s a method of advertising that is usually reserved for rusted old bangers, but one wealthy motorist seems to think it will help him shift his Lamborghini.

The flagship Aventador supercar was spotted this week parked in the affluent Sloane Street in West London, with a for sale sign in the front window.

The car, which is estimated to be worth around £320,000 was photographed with the sign, which read: ‘Lamborghini Aventador 1400km on the clock 2013 serious bidders call.’

Unfortunately for those looking to avoid the long waiting list for a new Lambo, the sign was written in Arabic, possibly to gain the attention of the large number of Arab playboys who descend on the area in the summer months in their exotic motors.

They’ve become so prolific, they’ve caused ire amongst the local community, who claim their lives are being affected by their anti-social driving.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Knightsbridge resident Panda Morgan-Thomas said: “I'm inundated with local residents complaining, not being able to sleep and I think people's tempers are getting somewhat jaded. It is quite difficult to be sleep deprived and carry on with a normal life.”

If you can’t speak Arabic, but like the idea of your own Italian supercar, you can browse our selection of used Lamborghinis here.
