Thieves on mopeds attacked a millionaire’s £3,000,000 Bugatti supercar and attempted to steal his £110,000 Rolex watch in Mayfair, a court heard.

Footage caught the moment a boy, 15, dressed as a Deliveroo driver repeatedly hammered the window of Abdullah Al Basman’s Bugatti Chiron in Park Lane.

The helmeted robber then fled the scene with another man also wearing the food-delivery service uniform after Al-Basman drove away as the traffic eased.

The target of the ambush, which happened in broad daylight on August 21 last year, is thought to have been Al Basman’s Platinum Rolex Daytona.

The Kuwaiti millionaire was staying at the Berkeley Hotel, with witnesses claiming the thieves followed him from there to Hyde Park Corner, the Evening Standard reported.

On his social media, the jet-setting Al Basman often flaunts his collection of polished expensive cars and watches to his more than 10,000 followers.
