Eleven Supercars Auctioned for €3.1 million
A really lucky buyer got eleven supercars for only €3,100,000 (around $4 million) from an auction. The fleet includes two Bugatti Veyrons, a Ferrari Enzo, Porsche Carrera GT, Maserati MC12, Ferrari 599GTO, a Rolls-Royce, an Aston Martin, a Maybach and two Bentleys.
All these cars were owned by Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue who is the son of Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
During an investigation back in 2011, the vehicles were seized by French authorities after an alleged theft of public funds at home in the African nation. All eleven supercars were seized at the president's incredible 101-room mansion, which is located near Champs Elysees.
Some of the supercars were barely driven or not at all, so the value is several times that buyer paid. A second hand Veyron starts from €800,000, an Enzo costs at least €1 million and the Carrera GT is around €300,000, if the buyer decides to sell all of them he will make fast several million €.
The 11 vehicles were part of a more extensive 26-supercar fleet which was shipped from United States to France in 2009. We wonder what happened to other 15?
