Birmingham based millionaire ‘Lord Aleem’ has been banned from driving his multi-million pound fleet of vehicles after he was convicted of motoring offences.
Young businessman Aleem Iqbal, who has flaunted his array of luxury motors on social media, was caught breaking the speed limit and driving without due care and attention.
The Solihull entrepreneur, who calls himself Lord Aleem, committed the offences on the M40/M42 northbound at Tanworth-in-Arden in Warwickshire on May 12 this year.
At Warwick Combined Court in Leamington on Tuesday Aleem, who did not attend, was also convicted of driving without due care and attention.
In addition to the ban Iqbal was fined £66 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £30 and £85 costs.
The 22-year-old was caught exceeding the 70mph motorway speed limit in his Rolls Royce Wraith.
Aleem, 22, has generated a huge social media following by showing off his supercar collection.
He describes himself on Twitter as a “petrolhead” and “award-winning entrepreneur”.
He runs Birmingham-based Platinum Executive Travel with his father Saleem, and hires out supercars.
Aleem and his vehicles have hit the headlines numerous times including in April when he threatened legal action after UFC star Conor McGregor was pictured standing on a different Rolls-Royce he had fired from the firm, which also rents out Ferraris, Porsches and Lamborghinis.
Six months earlier the self-styled ‘petrolhead’ told in an emotional YouTube video how a seatbelt saved his life when his Audi Q7 was involved in a crash in Birmingham.
He was also previously forced to apologise to police who had pulled him over in his new £550,000 Lamborghini, after telling them his shoes cost more than their wages.
He was filmed telling officers: “”Why are you looking at me? Trust me bro, my shoes are probably worth more than your f***ing wages.”
His agent Mark Brewer told of his client’s regret, saying: “Having had time to reflect on what happened and having spoken to his family, Aleem would like to apologise to the police officers involved for the way the situation escalated.”
Asked away from court about the disqualification, Iqbal replied: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
