BERLIN, June 27 (UPI) -- A German rental car company is mocking former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's sex crime conviction with a newspaper ad.

The ad for rental company Sixt features an image of a sunglasses-clad Berlusconi, who was sentenced his week to seven years in jail for paying $5.86 million to have sex with underage exotic dancer Karima El Mahroug, next to an image of a sports car, The Local.it reported Thursday.

"Alone for seven years in jail for 4.5 million euros ($5.86 million)?" the image reads. "Or one day in a sporty two-seater for 143 euros ($186)?"
