An influencer says his £75k supercar was “deliberately tampered with” before he lost control on the M6spinning across four lanes. Gurvin Singh Dyal, known online as Mr Gurvz, was driving his Mercedes AMG GTS on the motorway from Manchester to London when his car swerved from the right lane across to the left.
The 26-year-old said the car swerved all four lanes and spun around about three times. Luckily he managed to bring the car to a stop without crashing into anyone else during the incident at about 9.30am on Monday, June 27.
When traffic officers arrived they told the influencer and businessman all four tyres had been tampered with, he said. “I had parked my car in a car-park overnight and I was on the motorway driving at about 55mph as it was rainy and all of a sudden my car swerved all four lanes,” he said.
“I was in the right lane and it swerved to the left lane. I pulled the steering wheel to the right and the whole car started to spin 360 and turned about three times.
“I managed to bring the car to a standstill in the left lane, there was no hard shoulder. I didn’t hit any other cars or the barrier, it was very lucky.
“A family saw what happened and stopped and I got out of the car then called the police. I was in shock, I’ve been told by traffic officers that all four wheels have been tampered with. Three of the wheel nuts were taken out.
“I don’t know if that’s someone trying to kill me or steal the alloys. It was all sorted within 45 minutes. The car scraped along the floor and it was damaged underneath. It could have been a lot worse, could have hit nine or 10 cars.
“People should definitely check their cars, especially if they’ve been in a car park.” West Midlands Police has been asked to comment.
