October 28, 2020: In a bizarre incident, a Russian vlogger has stunned millions of viewers by burning down his luxurious Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S in a protest against the German car manufacturer.



According to the media sources, Mikhail Litvin is a YouTuber who set his luxury vehicle worth Rs 2.4 crore on fire in the middle of an empty field because he was annoyed with the service of the German car company.



Litvin, who has 4.95 million subscribers on YouTube, encountered issues with his new car and took to the dealership at least five times. All in all, the car spent more than 40 days in repair, and in one of the services, the turbine was changed with a new one being ordered from Germany, reports local website VC.ru.



However, the vlogger claimed that the dealership refused to fix the problem every time, finding excuses.



Subsequently, Litvin took a drastic step in order to send a message across to Mercedes-Benz. The YouTuber took his Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S to a wet, grassy field, poured fuel on the sports coupe, and burnt it down.



Litvin also made a dramatic video of the incident.  In just two days, Litvin's video on YouTube has received 11,564,548 views and one million likes.
