BMW teams up with Italian styling gurus at Pininfarina for slick new coupe
Lord Brocket may well be the most famous car insurance fraudster of all time. In 1991 he broke up five classic cars from his personal collection and buried them in the grounds of Brocket Hall, his family manor house. He then made a £4.5 million insurance claim saying that the cars, which included a Ferrari 250 Europa and a Maserati Birdcage, had been stolen.
Brocket was found out after his wife Lady Brocket was caught forging a prescription to feed her drug addiction. She discovered her husband had been unfaithful and cooperated with the police in their investigation against him. He was eventually jailed for fraud in 1996.
