Plumber shows up for work in Bentley

A PLUMBER in New Zealand has shocked his customers by turning up for jobs in a new Bentley Continental GT.

Paul Vandenburg’s prestige motor has been kitted out with Atlas Plumbing stickers and a roof rack for his equipment.

Vandenburg used to be a property developer in London and New Zealand before moving to the plumbing industry six months ago.

He admits using a luxury car as a company vehicle has its drawbacks. The Continental GT’s 12-cylinder, six-litre engine guzzles about £170 of fuel driving up and down the New Zealand’s North Island each week.

"But if it gets the company noticed then it's a good thing," said Vandenburg.

He added he was also looking to acquire a new Ferrari to further promote his business.
