Dubai police auctions 23 luxury vehicles, including a Ferrari Enzo

Article by Christian A., on April 26, 2012

A special auction took place on Wednesday as the police in Dubai attempted to sell 23 luxury vehicles, which include a £1 million limited edition Ferrari Enzo. This is believed to be the most expensive police sale throughout history. There had only been 399 units of this model produced worldwide. Last year, the police impounded the car, which was found abandoned in a car park and had already been covered in a lot of dust.

A Brit owned these vehicle, which is considered one of the top 10 fastest ever road cars ever built. It is believed that the owner is being hounded by unpaid traffic fines, which had piled up as the supercar was left there 20 months ago. Many expats decide to simply abandon their pricey cars because having a debt in Dubai is a crime. To avoid jail, many would skip the country.

They would be placed on the Interpol wanted list by the rich Arab state's authorities. It’s unknown if the Brit had committed serious crimes. The supercar will be getting a 5998c aluminium V12 engine, which delivers 660bhp and reach a top speed of 217mph.

It can accelerate from 0-60mph in only 3.4 seconds. Enzos, where were first produced in 2002, are so rare that every time one crashes the value of the others go up. Among the cars included in this auction are the following: 7 top-of-the-line Porsches, Corvettes, Mercedes, BMWs, Infinitis, Range Rovers and Dodges.
