Spanish gang held for transforming old Toyotas into fake Ferraris

A gang of three people in Spain were caught by police while they were converting old Toyotas into fake Ferraris and Lamborghinis.

 

The Spanish National Police detained the trio for operating a workshop in the town of Sils, where they modified the vehicles and sold them to unsuspecting customers on the internet.

 

Police also recovered badges, stickers and body kits designed to transform the vehicles into replicas of the Ferrari F430.

 

A total of 14 vehicles were discovered in various stages of transformation, including four Ferraris that were already prepped for sale, upi.com reports.

 

After discovering the incident, many believes that countries all over the world might have had such gangs to operate underworld market for "reproduction" cars.

 

However, police managed to track down the warehouse only after when one of the replica vehicles was demonstrated for sale in Benidorm for 40,000 Euro ($42,290 USD).
