Photos of a red Ferrari Enzo that had been impounded by the Dubai police and left to rot in an impound lot in the desert have been floating around the Internet for a long time. Six years later, that car is still in the possession of Dubai’s finest, but that may soon be subject to change.
According to Emirates 24/7, an American buyer recently inquired about the Enzo, which was impounded from a British expat that fled the country. The unnamed party offered by Dh6 million for the supercar, equivalent to $1,633,653 USD at the time of publication. The Dubai police might’ve been interested in their offer, however they cannot currently release the car as it’s part of an investigation.
“An American has offered to buy the car for Dh6 million, but we cannot release the vehicle for sale or auction because it is still under dispute,” Colonel Saif Al Mazroui said. “This car is a real masterpiece as only just over 300 having been produce by the company. Several people have offered to buy it, while others have queried about it.”
A Daily Mail report from 2012 indicated the car was to be auctioned at the ‘Al Quasis ‘ police auction and also stated the car was wanted by Interpol then, too. It didn’t sell, for whatever reason, and is now back in police custody for what we presume will be quite some time.
