- A young man shared photos of his stunning new ride via Twitter and the news went viral
- Many South Africans lauded him for the luxury Mercedes-Benz
- However, others identified holes in the story and accused the man of lying
A man caused a stir after unveiling photos of his sexy new whip - a luxury Mercedes-Benz.
Twitter user @TeflonDonRossay shared pics of the stunning ride and Briefly.co.za noted that the tweet went viral.
More than 16 000 people have already liked the tweet and it attracted hundreds of comments.
The majority of comments lavished praise on the young man for his outstanding achievement.
The tweet can be viewed below.
However, more and more tweeps smelt something fishy. The first signs of suspicious activity was that the steering was that of a left-hand drive vehicle.
The young man offered a reasonable explanation that he was employed in Germany and imported it upon his return to South Africa.
However, not everyone was convinced and they accused him of fabricating the story.

"Congratulations bruv. May you have safe journeys and great memories within."
Pleshido (@pleshido_sp) did not mince his words:
"Y'all just lie unprovoked."
Keshflow (@Cashflow_yonela) seemed unimpressed:
"You should have bought Edgars.... Anyways congrats."
Simba Simba (@SimbaPta) shared some insight on the matter:
"Left Hand Vehicles are no longer permitted in the Replublic as per NRTA Act93 of 1996. Otherwise Custodians of the Model which is Mercedes Benz will be in Serious Problem hence they don't sell Lefthand Vehicles in South Africa and Your Vehicle cannot Pass Roadworthy Test either."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a beautiful local sport reporter, Chulumanco Amahle, decided to buy herself an expensive gift as an early birthday present.
Amahle bought herself a brand-new Mercedes Benz and she showed off the whip on social media.
While many congratulated her on the new car, others could not believe she was actually 20 years old.
