Today, the abandoned Ferrari will go up for auction in what could potentially be the most expensive police sale in history.
Why would anyone abandon a Ferrari, you ask?
In Dubai, debt is a crime, so often times, debtors will flee the country to avoid jail time, leaving behind cars and other property.
Dubai’s traffic department director, Major General Mohammed Saif Al Zaffin, reports that this particular abandoned Ferrari Enzo was wanted by Interpol. It was left in a parking space twenty months ago after racking up too many parking tickets.
The Dubai government has the right to auction off any vehicle that’s been abandoned for more than six months. The auction itself will feature a grand total of 129 seized vehicles, 23 of which are luxury cars. They carry fines of around $27,000.
A red Ferrari Enzo in good condition can go for $1.4M to $1.8M, but this one’s been left in the dust and sand, so who knows how much it will go for.
It’s a shame really. I certainly would have been happy to take it off their hands.
