The Dubai police force already has some of the rarest and most powerful vehicles on the planet at its disposal, but a Ferrari Enzo has left officials scratching their heads.
Originally abandoned in 2012 by a Brit who left the country for an unknown reason, the Italian supercar was found 20 months later, covered in dust, and it ended up being impounded when officers found out that it was wanted, part of an Interpol investigation outside the UAE, writes 7days.ae.
While it’s not uncommon for the department to sell seized cars, some starting from just Dhs10,000 ($2,700 equivalent), this Ferrari Enzo cannot be sold due to “a complicated legal case” regarding its ownership.
“This legal dispute has delayed us doing anything with the car so it’s still in our detention center“, said Colonel Saif Muhai Al Mazroui, director of Traffic Department at Dubai Police.
The supercar, which was produced in just 399 units, attracted significant interest over the years and just recently, an American enthusiast made an offer of Dhs6 million ($1.6 million), but he was turned down.
While the future of this prancing horse remains uncertain, officials within the law department transferred it to a warehouse, “to prevent sun damage“, until they will decide what to do with it.
