"Foul play was ruled out. The fire was caused by a mechanical issue", said Selangor police Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief Supt Azman Shari’at when contacted Friday (July 27).
"The driver said that the fire started at the exhaust of the car. After he stopped the vehicle, the fire spread, and an explosion occurred," said Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohammad Azlin Sadari in a statement.
On Thursday, the luxury car was burnt after a fire broke out while it was being driven along the highway.
The car, while being driven by an Australian man, is believed to have belonged to cosmetics millionaire Datuk Seri Aliff Syukri Kamarzaman.
An Instagram post by the businessman appears to confirm this.
