A luxury car owner asked parents for money after their kids splattered ketchup on his £140,000 Lamborghini.

The man wrote on social media about the incident, which happened while his car was parked in the driveway of his home in Poringland, Norfolk.

The owner, who wished to remain anonymous, wrote: “It was possible paint damage from the acid in the ketchup.

“The problem was that the ketchup was injected into the engine compartment.

‘I have sent the bill to the parents and it is now paid.’

He said he hopes to teach the group of young people – whose ages are unknown – a lesson.

One of the children is believed to have sprayed the Lamborghini Huracan after being challenged by a group of their friends who were wandering the streets with a bottle of ketchup.

The Lamborghini Huracan. See SWNS story SWLSketchup. A man has fined the parents of some naughty children $250 after they squirted ketchup on his Lamborghini and threatened its paintwork. The man, who wished to remain anonymous, caught the spice attack on CCTV while the car was parked safely in the driveway of his home in Poringland, Norfolk. The group of children wandered the street with a ketchup bottle and splashed the 140,000 Lambo Huracan in what was believed to be a challenge. After the CCTV footage was shared on social media, the children were quickly identified by residents.

The owner checked CCTV outside his home to find the culprits, then posted the footage to Facebook to identify them.

He then sent the children’s parents a £250 bill to cover the cleaning work that a professional cleaning service had carried out on the 5.2-litre vehicle.

He said the acid in the ketchup might have damaged the paint.

Humphrey Grimmett, 46, tried the same to catch the perpetrators who scratched his car last year.

But after installing CCTV at his home in High Wycombe, he was surprised to discover it was his own seven-year-old son.

He was actually trying to help his father by clearing the snow off his car – but the damage cost a whopping £1,000 to repair.
