Police Recover $2.2M Ferrari Stolen During Test Drive. Police in Germany have recovered a Ferrari worth over $2M that was stolen during a test drive on Monday and are on the lookout for the suspect who stole it.
The man supposedly spent several weeks talking with the classic car dealer in Dusseldorf before coming to the showroom to take the 1985 288 GTO for a spin. A salesman went with him, and when he got out of the car to take over in nearby Neuss, the customer pulled away at a fast pace.
On Wednesday, police confirmed that the car had been discovered in a garage in the city of Grevenbroich on Tuesday, but did not reveal details of the discovery, according to NRZ.
A photo of the thief has been released to the public, showing what appears to be a middle-aged male with thinning hair and glasses.
Ferrari only built 272 models of the car from 1984 to 1987, and at one time was the fastest production car in the world. The stolen car was previously owned by retired Ferrari Formula One racing driver Eddie Irvine, has 27,000 miles on the odometer, and is estimated to be worth $2.2M or more.Auto News, Blog
