A newlywed man has set tongues wagging after arriving at his wedding with a motorcade of 60 luxury cars including Rolls-Royces, McLarens and Ferraris.
But the 27-year-old named only as Mr Yuan, who runs an amateur supercar club, claims he did not spend a single penny, and that all the vehicles belong to his friends.
Mr Yuan’s wedding motorcade, which was led by a number of Rolls-Royce Phantoms, stopped traffic on 20th October when it stopped in front of a hotel in the county of Jianshi, which is in Enshi in Central China’s Hubei Province.
Social media videos showing different colours supercars, including Ferraris, McLarens, Aston Martins and Lamborghinis, began flooding social media on Mr Yuan’s big day.
Members of the public accused Mr Yuan of flaunting his wealth, but he claims the vehicles he did not spend a single penny, and that all the vehicles – some rented – belonged to his wedding guests.
Mr Yuan’s day job is as a luxury car importer and limousine service provider in Hubei’s provincial capital of Wuhan, where he met his wife, but he also heads up an amateur luxury and supercar club.
As is tradition, Mr Yuan fetched his wife from her home in Wuhan, and the motorcade travelled together to the groom’s native county of Jianshi.
He explained: “I’ve met supercar hobbyists across the country because of my interests. They drove their cars to celebrate my wedding.
“I didn’t spend a single penny on hiring the cars, but I did treat them to a meal.
“I come from a very average family. My parents are still farming.”
Local authorities confirmed that they questioned the owners of three cars on the day after their number plates were unlawfully hidden behind a large sign – Mr Yuan’s company logo.
The police said the trio would be questioned at a later date, and that Mr Yuan’s wedding was not interrupted.
