The mystery of James Stunt’s burned out supercar: Bankrupt playboy ex of Petra Ecclestone’s £500,000 Lamborghini is destroyed in roadside fire

  • Charred Lamborghini has been completely destroyed in a roadside fire
  • Stunt was declared bankrupt last week and had been banned from selling car
  • It was among his nine supercars and several luxury homes that were ‘frozen’ 
  • In good condition a genuine Lamborghini Countach can be worth up to £500k

This smouldering wreck is all that remains of one of James Stunt’s prized supercars.

The charred Lamborghini, which bore a personalised number plate reading ‘1 57UNT’, has been completely destroyed in a roadside fire.

Stunt, who was declared bankrupt last week, had been banned from selling the black car under a court order.

The ‘asset’ is now worthless after it was found abandoned and burnt out in the village

It was among nine supercars – including Bentleys and Range Rovers – and several luxury homes belonging to the 37-year-old that were ‘frozen’ in August 2018.

In good condition, a genuine Lamborghini Countach can be worth between £200,000 and £500,000.

However, sources suggested Stunt’s was built from a kit in 1992.

The ‘asset’ is now worthless after it was found abandoned and burnt out in the village of Kingswood, Surrey, on Thursday evening – exactly one week after Stunt’s bankruptcy was declared. 

Stunt, the ex-husband of Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone, had faced a towering debt pile worth £14million of allegedly unpaid bills.

According to the DVLA, the car’s MOT ran out in March 2016. 

It should not have been on a public road, as a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) had been declared.

The Daily Mail asked Stunt’s lawyers if there was any explanation for the fire. The firm requested the car’s registration plate, but did not comment further.
