A multimillionaire from Swindon who was ‘ignored by Ferrari’ has bought a Lamborghini.
Matt Fiddes, who’s famous for his global martial arts franchise and his role as Michael Jackson’s bodyguard, dropped £300,000 on the Aventador.
The entrepreneur snubbed Ferrari after claims he was ignored by staff at their Swindon dealership over his outfit – a red tracksuit – back in February.
Matt shared photos of his new ride on social media to inspire young people, he claims – telling them “you can make your own successes in life”.
The 43-year-old left school with no qualifications and still can’t write – but he’s built an empire and wants others to know they can do the same.
He said: “I didn’t know whether to share these photos and video but I’m proud of my achievements and want young people to know that you may get knocked back, struggle with learning, fail to get the grades you want, go through tough times, trolled or bullied for being different.
“But, you can make your own successes in life. I still can’t write and failed all school exams!
“I’ve built up a global business and property empire with an incredible team around me just with pure passion and determination! Anything is possible!
“So, I’m showing off my new car which I’ve worked very hard for. I hope to motivate you all!
“Loving it but it is a bit of a beast… it might spend more time in the garage than on the road.”
Adding: “After walking into Ferrari, with a tracksuit and being overlooked… I swung by Lamborghini and picked up my new wheels.”
At the time, a spokesperson for Ferrari denied Matt’s claims – saying there was a “brief delay due to high levels of showroom traffic”, meaning he was not served immediately after walking in.
