In Istanbul's Beyoglu district, a mysterious man, presumably an Arab, was seen selling watermelons on the street, bringing them in a sports Lamborghini Aventador with Antalya province plates. In Turkey, such a car, even a used one, costs about 672 thousand dollars. At the same time, a watermelon from a mysterious seller costs 5 Turkish lira (50 rubles) per kilo.

The Aventador was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011 and quickly became a hit among the rich and famous. It is equipped with a 6.5-liter 12-cylinder engine with a capacity of 700 hp, which accelerates from 0 to 100 km in just 2.9 seconds. The car has a top speed of 350 km/h (218 mph). The cost of the car is about 350,000 thousand dollars (26.5 million rubles).

An unusual combination of a supercar and small street trade aroused the interest of passers-by, and soon a long queue was lined up for watermelons. At the same time, the seller's friend conducted a live broadcast of what was happening on social networks.

However, as soon as journalists appeared on the spot, the mysterious seller immediately retreated so hastily that he did not even pick up his goods, leaving watermelons on the side of the road.

It remains unknown who it was and why he was selling watermelons. There is an assumption that it was some kind of prank for social networks. Quite harmless, unlike the prank of a German blogger who pretended to eat dolphin meat and received his portion of hatred from the netizens.
