Thai police are looking for a rare supercar in connection with an online gambling case

In connection with an ongoing investigation into the illegal gambling site macau888, Thai authorities are hunting for a very rare Lamborghini Aventador V2. However, the cops have been left perplexed thus far.

According to local rumours, the vehicle's owner, a wealthy importer of supercars and "drift racer," has escaped to Hong Kong. That was a day after his furious ex-girlfriend, a stunning Thai television actress, revealed him as the macau888 kingpin in a Facebook post.

Previously known only by his social media handle "Benz Daemon," authorities have now released the fugitive's full name, Chaiwat Kachornboonthaworn, 38.

Deputy Commissioner of the Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau, Pol Maj Gen Wiwat Khamchamnan, has pledged to take assets associated to macau888, including Chaiwat's fleet of luxury vehicles.

$1.2M Supercar

The most notable of these is his Lamborghini Mad Bull Liberty Walk Aventador V2, of which only 50 were ever produced. It is the only one in Thailand and is estimated to be worth US$1.2 million. Despite the fact that Chaiwat has no intention of taking it with him to Hong Kong, the automobile remains elusive.

Police raided a luxury auto store in Bangkok on Monday, where they anticipated to discover the car. But it was not to be found.

They also investigated a garage in Nakhon Ratchasima province, northeast of Bangkok, after learning that Chaiwat used it to store race cars. The search yielded only two Nissans, which was disappointing.

In the meantime, police claim they have warrants out for 13 major suspects and have detained seven people. Among the fugitives are Chaiwat's three brothers, who allegedly held high-level positions in macau888.

Disclosing Information

Arisara Thongborisut, also known as "Due" Arisara, is Chaiwat's ex-girlfriend. She appears to have been prompted to expose the gambling kingpin on Facebook by her displeasure with his upcoming wedding.

“The entire online gambling industry is expected to attend,” she wrote on the social media platform. “And there are many famous people attending.”

It’s not wrong to love and marry,” she added. “But it’s wrong to do dirty business … and to dare to organize a big event… [To] display the wealth gained from gambling websites that trick Thai people out of money.”

Thongborisut's rashness, according to police, gave Chaiwat enough time to flee and maybe hide his prized Lamborghini.

After making the post, the actress and her family flew to Taiwan for their own safety.
