luxury car seizures on the increase

Seizures of uninsured luxury cars are on the increase proving it’s not just the poor who decide to risk driving without insurance.

So far this year up and down the country 27,688 cars have been seized including Bentleys, Lamborghinis, and Ferraris. The largest number of luxury seizures have been by the Met police with 810 BMWs, 386 Audis, 21 Porchses, 5 Bentleys, 2 Lamborghinis and a Ferrari. According to official police data. Across the country another 40 Porchses, 10 Bentleys, 3 Lamborghinis and 2 Ferraris.

1892 of these luxury cars have been auctioned this year raising over £1m in revenue, with £217,933 being the highest price paid for a seized car. 6736 of these cars have been crushed generating a scrap value of £653,891.

This has lead to some heads of insurance calling for higher penalties for uninsured drivers. Steve Barrett head of car insurance at Churchill was quoted as saying “for an everyday motorist to be covering the costs of a driver that can afford a Ferrari is a travesty. Money generated from fines should be pumped into covering the costs of uninsured drivers.”
