A businessman is to bury his Bentley Continental Flying Spur after being inspired by the Egyptian pharaohs

A Brazilian businessman is so infatuated with his Bentley Continental Flying Spur he has revealed he plans bury it, so he can be with it in the afterlife.

In a photo published on his personal Facebook page, 62-year old Conde Chiquinho Scarpa, can be seen stood beside his £140,000 prized possession with a spade at his side. A statement from Conde Chiquinho Scarpa published along with the image said, “For those who are wavering, just yesterday I've already begun to make the hole in the yard to bury my Bentley. By the end of the week I bury him!”

A plot in the grounds of his home in Sao Paulo has already chosen for the burial. Conde Chiquinho Scarpa revealed his decision to bury his car was inspired by a programme he seen just last week based on the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, who believed that burying their treasures would enable them to be with their riches in the afterlife.

In another photograph on Conde Chiquinho Scarpa’s Facebook page, he can be seen in an excavator digging up his garden where he plans to bury the Bentley.
