The video clip has been uploaded by lifeistic0001 page on Instagram. It shows the abandoned Audi R8 lying at a police station in Maharashtra. As per the information in the video clip, Virat Kohli ended up selling this R8 via a broker for Rs 2.5 Crore. However, the broker went on to sell it forward to someone else called Shagy. Reportedly, he gifted this supercar to his girlfriend. This, understandably, was a grand gesture and definitely something you don’t see too often.

In fact, it was so rare that it raised suspicions which is why a police inquiry was set up. To everyone’s surprise, Shagy turned out to be a person who was absconding after he got involved in a Rs 500 Crore call centre scam. The Police authorities sprung into action and raided all the places where he could have been found. Finally, he was arrested and all his property and assets were seized. The Audi R8 was a part of that investigation which is why it is now sitting outside a Police station.
