Luxury car dealer Phan Cong Khanh has been accused of selling a customer’s luxury car for VND24.5 billion ($1.04 million) without his knowledge.

A person named Manh from the southern province of Kien Giang has complained to the police that he had lent his Brabus 800 to Khanh in early June to put on display at the launch of his dealership in Ho Chi Minh City.

But a few weeks later he found out that Khanh had sold the car to a buyer in HCMC for VND24.5 billion.

Brabus is a German high-performance automotive aftermarket tuning company.

The Brabus 800 is the upgraded version of the Mercedes AMG G63, and costs around VND30 billion in Vietnam.

Some vendors have also complained that Khanh owes them money for services they provided for the launch of K Supper, his luxury car dealership in District 1.

They include VND100 million for bouquets, VND25 million for renting a crane and some money for construction.

His employee, Mohamach Da Pha, has also been accused of mortgaging a person’s car without consent.

The police said that in April Pha borrowed a VND1.8-billion BMW from a man named Son and offered to sell it.

But Son found out recently he had mortgaged his car for VND1 billion.

The HCMC police are investigating.

Khanh, a native of the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre, has the reputation of selling the most luxurious cars in Vietnam.

He entered the car dealership business in 2017 and opened his K Supper showroom in HCMC’s District 1 in June.

He regularly posts photos of himself standing next to Rolls-Royce, McLaren, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche cars on social media, and writes about how young people can start a business and make money.
