Tamara Ecclestone didn’t waste any time shopping for a new Lamborghini after a judge ruled this week that the Formula One heiress was wrong to try and take back one of the supercars from her ex-boyfriend when the two split in 2012.

The British socialite purchased the $63,000 Lamborghini Aventador for then-boyfriend Omar Khyami's 38th birthday in April 2012. According to the Daily Mail, Khyami later used the car as collateral on a loan from Elite Performance Cars Ltd. to pay off a Bentley he had bought Ecclestone the year before.

When the couple broke up a few months later, Ecclestone reportedly tried to reclaim the Lamborghini. The vehicle was later seized from a garage where the 29-year-old was having it serviced and sold to Ansol Trading Ltd., sparking a legal battle over ownership.

Ecclestone argued in court that she never gave the car to Khyami as a gift, and instead insisted that she only allowed him to use it as long as the two were living together.

Elite Performance and Ansol sued Ecclestone for damages, each claiming they were prevented from selling the Lamborghini when the socialite obtained an injunction barring any sale.

A High Court justice ruled Monday that Ecclestone was wrong to reclaim and the car and ordered her to pay more than $33,000 to Elite Performance and Ansol, the BBC reported.

"Ms. Ecclestone's conduct was wrongful and interfered with the title and possession by Elite and Ansol by interfering with sales made by Elite and Ansol, and by removing the car, and by preventing dealings with the proceeds of the sale of the car," the judge said.

On Tuesday, Ecclestone was photographed looking at Lamborghinis in a showroom in West London.
