A man from China has staged a full funeral service for his wrecked Porsche Cayenne.

Hao Gang gave his dream car a proper send off to the great scrap yard in the sky after crashing in Changsha, Hunan province.

He said: “I was really happy when I was able to get a Porsche Cayenne but was shocked when travelling with my wife and the brakes failed.

“I crashed into the car in front and was lucky to survive. The traffic experts said that the brakes had failed as the car’s engine had not been properly put in place.

“But the garage refused to compensate me, so I decided to warn others what might happen to them with a funeral for the car.”

Hao added that he was planning to leave the destroyed vehicle in the car park outside the dealership until he gets compensation.

He said: “It is after all the poor car’s final resting place. It would be disrespectful to move it.”
