A total of 122 super cars have been impounded by the Department of Special Investigation following coordinated raids of nine car showrooms and warehouses, especially the Niche Car Group, in Bangkok on Friday.

 

The impounding of the 122 luxury cars were announced at a press conference by justice deputy permanent secretary Pol Col Dusadee Arayawuth and DSI chief Pol Col Paisit Wongmuang.

 

Officials of the DSI split up to raid nine locations connected with import of luxury cars, including showrooms at Siam Paragon and Ekamai, Raminthra road and the residence of Mr Wittavat Choenbaramee of the Niche Car Group.

 

The cars impounded include Lamboghini, Ferrari and Lotus.

they always seem to make a point of keeping the auctions, locations and dates a secret from the public and the reserves on the cars are far too high they dont want just anyone getting a bargain.

They are published in thai media, and online. 

 

You pay 100000b to attend (refundable) but i guess thats just to ensure you are serious. 

 

No bargains to be had, the dealers bid up to near market value, so you might 'save' 200k....

I hope the police dump the cars into the sea to make a home for fish.

Time for the Taiwan solution. They "invite" the owners and scrapyard enthusiasts when they publicly destroy luxury cars imported without tax. You may find some tear jerking pics on the web...
