Rare Lamborghini of Manchester City player may be crushed by crane
In the UK, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ supercar, which is owned by Manchester City football player Benjamin Mendy, may be disposed of by the authorities. This car was produced in a limited edition of 900 pieces and costs about $500,000.
According to Carscoops, police stopped the defender's car at 5 am in Cheshire. The players did not have insurance with them, as well as a valid driver's license. As a result, the car was confiscated from Mendy and sent to the impound lot. By law, a car can stay there for no more than 20 days. If during this period the driver does not pick up the car, paying all the fines, and presenting the necessary documents, the car will be crushed at the dump with a special crane.
At the moment, 20 days have passed since the arrest of the football player's car. However, according to The Sun, the police are aware that the Manchester City player wants to return his car, so they are in no hurry to dispose of the supercar.
"Benjamin is a great footballer, but he doesn't understand the bureaucratic details like paperwork. He didn’t take out insurance and it was a big mistake. Now he is trying to solve all these formalities. However, 20 days have already passed and his car may be destroyed. The police know that he wants to return his car and will gladly give it back as soon as the player presents the necessary documents," said a source familiar with the situation.
Supercar Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is equipped with a 6.5-liter atmospheric V12 engine, developing 770 HP and 720 N·m of torque. The engine is paired with a seven-speed robotic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system.
Not so long ago, a confiscated Ferrari 458 Spider sports car was destroyed in the UK. A $280,000 sports car was crushed by a crane. As the owner of the car himself explained, he did not have the documents for the car with him, and law enforcement officers suspected that the sports car had been stolen. After that, the car was taken to the impound. According to the motorist, he bought the sports car at one of the auctions. However, while he was proving his right to own the car through the courts, the police destroyed his car.
