As part of an investigation into alleged tax evasion, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) seized 60 supercars from a major car importer on Thursday.

 

Some 40 Lamboghinis and 20 supercars of various brands were seized from Niche Cars Group's four-storey showroom in Suan Luang district on suspicion of tax evasion, said DSI deputy chief Pol Lt-Colonel Kornwat Panprapakorn who led the search.

 

The owner of the cars will have to submit evidence to explain the legitimacy of the cars later, he added. Kornwat was accompanied by DSI financial and banking division director Pol Lt-Colonel Pakorn Suchiwakul during the search. 

 

Reporters were told that details of the operation would be announced in a press conference tomorrow. 

 

The seizures were part of the warranted operation to search nine locations across Bangkok. They included the Niche Cars Group's showroom at Siam Paragon mall, an apartment in Soi Ramkhamhaeng 105/1 where an accountant stayed, a house in Muang Samut Prakan belonging to a company executive, two houses in Bang Kapi area, a car tent on Praditmanutham Road in Bang Kapi, and STT Auto Car's two showrooms in Huai Kwang and Klong Ton.

Pretty sure that Elise is a Monza (series 2) roughly 11 or 12 years old.

 

I believe the plate "Qualified Supercars" is the pre-owned division of Niche

Yes they do, but since the whole thing is not on the up and up level,

the custom doesn't guarantee that you'll not going to have issues

down the line with other agencies...

I'm going to start saving for one of those Lambos when they come

up for auction soon......

I heard they are imported in parts and assembled here to avoid tax but could be Bar talk.

 

Did they seize the Ferrari used to kill the poor Policeman? That would have made as much sense.
