A Lamborghini Aventador owned by socialite Tamara Ecclestone has disappeared from a garage in London where it was being serviced. The daughter of billionaire Formula One CEO Bernie Ecclestone reportedly purchased the car a couple of years ago from a dealer named Ziad Shawadi when she was dating businessman Omar Khyami. The supercar was put under Omar's name to secure a resident's parking permit, but it was registered to her Chelsea, London, address.

Tamara tried to sell the Lamborghini last summer after the couple split, but learned that her boyfriend had used the $400,000 exotic as collateral on a loan – and that set off a legal battle due for a hearing later this year.

But now the car has disappeared, and the culprits are alleged to be men working for Shawadi who have apparently repossessed it as a result of the outstanding loan. Ecclestone filed a complaint at a Notting Hill police station, but the authorities have said they won't be moving on this one. There has been no word on the fate of the parking permit.

      No worry! If she can hang on for another week, I'll be getting my SS check and then I can drive her where ever she wants to go in my 2004 Hyundai!!

      Non-issue, not news. Her Daddy probably has 400K lost amongst the couch pillows. Put that little pouty face on, and go beg a new one.

      Bernie is filthy with money and even at his advanced age he's still pretty smart. He makes a bundle from the F1 franchise but his daughter (although a fox) looks like a twit (as they say in jolly old England). She came to the U.S. and bought a multi-million dollar mansion in CA that looks like a castle. I would be surprised if they repo the castle because she forgot to make a payment. I think if I had a choice between Tamara and the Lambo, I'd have to go with the car 'cause you know what you're getting!

      An Aventador could NOT have been purchased "a couple of years ago." That model did not exist then.

      You people are so mean..I was having lunch at one of my country club functions, eating watercress sandwiches and sipping a fine Pinot Noir, when I heard this sad news. I have known this fine family for no years and can certainly feel and share their pain..I mean, folks, it a LAMBO for christs sake..IT'S A LAMBO!! What is she supposed to do now? drive a Mercedes or worse yes a Lexus...how crass to have to stoop to these levels. I have started a charity fund in her name in order to assist her in her time of need. Yes, I will be able to write this off, but it is the thought that counts OR IS IT: the COUNT that thinks he will just buy her something prettier next time..And for all you heartless bastards out there: what about love? Super rich need love too, you know!!

        With her money? She could get on the phone and have a brand new one sitting in her garage before she gets home.
