62year old wealthy entrepreneur 'Count Scarpa' will be burying his greatest treasure - his new £310,000 Bentley convertible today so as to avoid any chance of not balling in his afterlife.
In a bizarre announcement on his Facebook page Scarpa declared that he plans to do as the Pharaohs of Egypt did and take his riches with him when he dies by burying them.
So today, he will entomb his brand new Bentley Continental worth over £310,000 to make sure he has a comfortable journey into the ‘other side’.
The funeral ceremony, he promises, will be at 11am in Sao Paulo.
The self-made businessman, who has a degree in economics and is a black belt instructor and owner of the Institute Maruyama Aikido, a Japanese martial arts academy, explains that his decision to start storing up his treasures for the life beyond came after watching a programme on Ancient Egypt on Sunday.
'I was watching a documentary about the pharaohs of Egypt, very interesting. They buried their entire fortune to have a comfortable life "the other side"!'
