An Aston Martin driver with more money than sense was handed a cheeky revenge note after being slapped with four parking fines.
They managed to collect the parking tickets on their shiny late-model Aston Martin DB11 in the course of just one weekend.
The 200mph V12 grand tourer was left parked on a narrow road with yellow lines on both sides late on Friday evening.
While it miraculously managed not to lose a wing mirror, it did gain some tickets.
The driver collected the tickets, but left the £150,000 coupé just where it was.
After a third parking ticket was stuck to the luxury motor’s windscreen, one playful local added an extra note that read, somewhat sarcastically: “I’m so rich, I park where I want. I am also a knob."
The cheeky local told Teesside Live : "The chap must have seen this because he then took the tickets and the nice note, got in his car and drove away."
But wherever the mystery driver went, it wasn’t far. The Aston was back in virtually the same spot only a short while later.
What’s more, they had brought a friend. Behind the 600hp twin-turbocharged Aston, a top-of the line Range Rover had appeared. That, too sprouted a couple of parking tickets.
On Monday morning, the Aston was still parked on the double yellow lines, receiving a further ticket for good luck.
Commenting on the situation, another resident said: "Parking must still be at a premium in Whitby, because a £150k Aston Martin collected four penalty tickets after being parked on double yellows in two different locations this weekend.
"We noticed it on Back St Hilda's on Saturday night.”
Reviewing the DB11 for the Sunday Times back in 2016, Jeremy Clarkson said of the DB11: “If you’re ever in Paris, at a party at 3am, and suddenly remember you are playing in a tennis tournament in Monte Carlo the next afternoon, this is the car for the job. You’d arrive feeling like you’d just got out of the bath.”
He failed to add how you might feel if you then carried on to Whitby and picked up just short of £300-worth of parking tickets.
