Police Bust  Counterfeit  Ferrari Factory


Spanish police have arrested three people for allegedly building and selling counterfeit Ferrari sports cars based on Toyota vehicles.

Essentially building them like kit cars, the secret shop would fabricate surprisingly convincing Ferrari bodies out of fiberglass. According to local media outlet La Voz de Galicia, police began investigating the shop after finding a fake Ferrari in Benidorm. They were then able to track down who built the fake Ferrari and discovered the secret workshop.  In total, 14 cars were found at the shop, four of which were already for sale while others were in the process of being built. It appears one car has a Peugeot engine lurking under the hood, so not all donor cars appear to be Toyota models. Carscoops reports the cars were being sold online for around $43,000.
