An Australian millionaire who owns several Lamborghini supercars and conveniently goes by the name ‘Lambo Guy’ on the internet decided to become humble and ‘tone it down’ by switching to an Audi A1 for a while and ended up adding a $1.68 million license plate to it.

Yes, you are reading that number right.

The millionaire, Adrian Portelli, goes by several nicknames, including Lambo Guy and Mr Lambo — obviously because of his Lamborghinis.

Because of a controversy on Instagram, he decided to get back at — let’s just say, people who aren’t his fans — by ditching his Lambos to drive an Audi A1.

Lambo Guy has a lot of fans…and non-fans

Portelli wasn’t a millionaire all along — he got rich by building businesses, successful investments, and dealing in real estate.

He worked hard to get where he is, but he’s also very proud of it.

Which is why he pulls off unusual marketing stunts that don’t please everyone.

For starters, the Lambo Guy owns one of Australia’s most outrageous car collections.

And he certainly favors one brand, which you can already guess.

Despite that, it doesn’t mean he dislikes other brands’ supercars.

He has a McLaren Senna GTR inside a penthouse that is being used as a piece of decoration.

Mr Lambo now driving an Audi A1 with $1.7m license plate

The latest shenanigans of Mr Lambo include buying another Lambo — a Huracan STO — which he loved and posted about on Instagram.

However, some of his alleged ‘haters’ didn’t like his purchase, so he decided to get back at them.

Shortly after, he posted a photo in front of an Audi A1 with a license plate that read ’20.’

It appears to be the same license plate that sold for nearly $1.7 million only last week.

Of course, the Audi isn’t nearly worth as much as the plate, so he obviously did it to make a statement.

Whether you’re a fan or not, you have to admit that he certainly succeeded at what he set out to do.

It seems like he doesn’t mind either way.
