Want To See A £200K Ferrari Spider Get Crushed? You're In Luck

Want To See A £200K Ferrari Spider Get Crushed? You're In Luck

A £200,000 Ferrari was 'wrongly' crushed after being confiscated by police.

The Ferrari 458 Spider had to be crushed at a scrapyard because police believed the car may have been stolen. The driver of the car says he was pulled over by police in April last year, who seized the vehicle.

Millionaire Zahid Khan, 31, told officers he had bought the car from a auction company through a middleman - and that he had had official parts fitted, promising cops it was all legal.

But, when asked, he was unable to show the proper paperwork so it was taken away from him and crushed last year.

Khan then went back to court with papers proving the car was his, but it was too late by then and the vehicle had already been crushed.

West Midlands Police said they had to destroy the car because it didn't have insurance and was considered a Category B vehicle, meaning it was not roadworthy and the shell had to be crushed.

Perhaps understandably, Khan was less than impressed to learn that his car had been scrapped and has vowed to sue the police.

"I can't believe they have destroyed my car," he said.

"I love supercars and have owned a number of them and loved this car.

"I saved to buy this car, and it was sentimental to me and my family.

"The police had no right to do what they did, it's very sad, this money could have gone to a good cause.

"Ferrari parts are worth more than the car itself. I had a quote to sell the Ferrari in parts for over £250,000.

"I'm planning on taking the officer to court for breaching a court order and unlawfully destroying my car."
