A Lamborghini Aventador owned by socialite Tamara Ecclestone has disappeared from a garage in London where it was being serviced. The daughter of billionaire Formula One CEO Bernie Ecclestone reportedly purchased the car a couple of years ago from a dealer named Ziad Shawadi when she was dating businessman Omar Khyami. The supercar was put under Omar’s name to secure a resident’s parking permit, but it was registered to her Chelsea, London, address.
Tamara tried to sell the Lamborghini last summer after the couple split, but learned that her boyfriend had used the $400,000 exotic as collateral on a loan – and that set off a legal battle due for a hearing later this year.
But now the car has disappeared, and the culprits are alleged to be men working for Shawadi who have apparently repossessed it as a result of the outstanding loan. Ecclestone filed a complaint at a Notting Hill police station, but the authorities have said they won’t be moving on this one. There has been no word on the fate of the parking permit.
She revealed recently that her top tip for looking sexy is embracing your figure.
And earlier this week, Tamara Ecclestone put her advice into action as she posed for a stunning swimwear shoot.
The 28-year-old socialite posted a picture of herself wearing a very daring plunging black swimsuit by her favourite swimwear brand Melissa Odabash as she took some time out between takes on the set of the shoot in Ibiza.
Drawing attention to her most famous assets in the one-piece, Tamara wears her brunette hair loose in tumbling curls around her shoulders.In a recent interview with MailOnline, Tamara said she tries to stay healthy as much as she can, but does allow herself the odd treat when it gets to Saturday.
She said: ‘I try to be healthy Monday through Friday. I don’t eat carbs in the evening but at the weekend I definitely let myself relax.
‘I’m not one of these people who could be good all the time, life is too short. I don’t love going to the gym but I force myself to go occasionally.
‘I just feel moderation and balance is good. Obsessing about it is the worst thing to do. I’m naturally curvy and am never going to be a size zero but I’ve embraced it, you’ve got to work with what you’ve got.’
Tamara also said she hopes to follow in the footsteps of her stunning mother Slavica and maintain her flawless complexion without going under the surgeon’s knife.
She said: ‘Never say never with plastic surgery. I look at my mum, she’s 54 and has never had anything. I’ve had Botox and she’s not even had that. She looks amazing but it depends what works for me.
‘There’s a fine line and you don’t want to overdo it but I think as a woman, it’s whatever makes you feel better.’
Tamara’s swimsuit shot came as she shot scenes for an upcoming campaign – tweeting fans regularly in between takes.
After a long day’s work, Tamara tweeted: ‘Looking forward to second day of shoot tomorrow in Ibiza must get some beauty sleep!’

TAMARA ECCLESTONE , daughter of billionaire Bernie, the Formula One chief, lives in a £2m mansion that he bought her. Oh yes, he also gives her £100,000 a year. Which is nice.
She got her first job working on the F1 magazine – owned by him. Now she reports on F1 racing for Sky, but is not happy.
“Before I get too typecast as Miss Sport Presenter, I’d like to try something else. I want a chat show – I like talking. I want to make my own way.”
Yes, love. Of course, you do.
With her first pay cheque she bought a £17,000 Rolex.
Like you do. “It made me realise how hard my mum and dad had to work for things.”
Give me strength.
When I got my first pay cheque I bought three light ales and a bag of crisps. My mum took the rest for my keep.
In her interview, Tamara gives the impression she is living so far from reality that she could be on the moon. Maybe she gets it from her dad.
Tamara Ecclestone has revealed that she finds her dad’s relationship with a women nearly 50 years his junior “a bit weird”.
The Formula One supremo, who turns 80 this year, divorced his wife Slavica, 51, last year after 25 years of marriage and is now dating Brazilian Fabiana Fiosi, 30.
According to the Sunday Mirror, Tamara, 28, said her father always was an “energetic” man. “Maybe he just thought, ‘I might only have another 10 years, so I might as well have fun’,” she said.
“That’s why I spend more time with my mom. She’s not interested in finding another man. Women are so much more sensible than men. Women can be alone, men can’t!”
The TV presenter, who gets a £100,000-a-year allowance from her billionaire father, added that she would prefer that her parents were happy single than miserable together. Speaking about her career aspirations, she said that she is determined to stand on her own two feet.
“Before I get too typecast as Miss Sports Presenter, I’d like to try something else. I want a chat show – I like talking. I want to make my own way,” she said.
