"It just had all this writing in the paint all over it."

A 20-year-old millionaire was horrified after his £100,000 supercar was vandalised while he was in Manchester.

Wasseem Khan, who made his fortune in cryptocurrency, parked his yellow Audi R8 V10 in Leeds overnight and went to Manchester for a business meeting.

But when he returned, his car had been vandalised with black paint.

Wasseem was branded a “c**k” and a “show off” by vandals who covered the car with words like “virgin” and “die” across its bonnet, sides and boot.

He explained: “It was on Sunday night. I had to go out of town to Manchester on a business trip. I was in a rush and parked my car in the city centre.

“It was just in an open car park. It wasn’t the safest, but I didn’t think someone would do anything to the car. I left it and came back in the morning.

“I went to go get my car. It just had all this writing in the paint all over it.

“It was a bit of a shock. I looked to see if the car was damaged, and luckily it wasn’t. So I thought probably it will just wash off. They have been scrubbing for ages, and it’s not coming off.

“That’s when I started panicking. I thought, ‘This won’t come off!’ I’m still trying to find a solution for that’.”

Wasseem said he was still trying to find a way to remove the words, adding he did not know why his car had been targeted.

He added: “It could be anyone. I don’t want to point fingers. They are innocent until proven guilty.

“A few people are saying I could use a chemical to get it off. If that works, it’s a few hundred pounds. If not, it could be thousands to get the wrap changed.

“I drive the R8 all the time. It’s probably my dream car.”

Wasseem purchased the car in October 2022 following his work in the financial markets.

He said: “I do international trading, trading on the foreign exchange, which is known as the Forex exchange.

“I also do crypto and also have other businesses. It’s hard work. Hard work pays off.”

Despite the incident, the millionaire said it does not phase him.

“I don’t really have any enemies, I think a lot of people just can’t see someone young, do good, you know I have a supercar at 20, they can’t put up with it.

“I would just like to say to them, what you have done is very low and pathetic and childish, you just cannot see someone young doing well, it is just pathetic, they could be following their own dreams instead of destroying someone else’s.”

Wasseem, who owns several luxury cars, added:

“It’s not much of a loss for me, I make £6-7,000 in my sleep.”

Known as WasKhan online, the millionaire has over 80,000 followers across several platforms.

He also warned people about being popular on social media after this incident.

Wasseem said: “The dangers of being on social media is you attract a lot of good people and a lot of bad people.

“I would like the person that did it, to come forward.”
