Russian Bentley gets covered in cement

Accidentally pouring cement over a very expensive car. It sounds like the kind of snafu Clarkson somehow caused, but Jeremy wasn’t at a building site in Russia this week. Unfortunately for its owner, the Bentley above was.

Yes, CCTV footage has emerged from the grainy depths of Russia (and not from a dash cam this time), showing what happens when lax health and safety standards at a construction site impact upon the rich and famous.

During what was presumably a routine concrete pour in Moscow, three cars in an adjacent car park came to be splattered in cement. One of those cars just happened to be a Bentley Continental (a new one costs £130,000). From the evidence the Conti got the worst of it, too.

According to Russia Daily the luxury car in question belongs to an “unnamed Russian celebrity”. As this only happened yesterday, we’re not entirely sure what happened next. It’s probably fair to imagine that one Moscow based construction company are looking for a new staff member or two.
