After almost 30 years, Gerhard Berger’s stolen Ferrari turns up


The Metropolitan Police in London published a strange report on Monday! A theft that took place in Italy almost thirty years ago has been solved. The Tyrolean ex-Formula 1 driver Gerhard Berger was hit. That’s when thieves stole his Ferrari.

The Ferrari was stolen in April 1995 in Italy, where the San Marino Grand Prix took place in Imola. The car, worth around £350,000 (the equivalent of almost €409,000), has now been seized, the Metropolitan Police announced.

The British were called in by Ferrari in January after the company reviewed a car sale by a British broker to an American buyer.

Shipped to Japan shortly after it was stolen
It turned out that the car was stolen. Detectives from a unit specialized in organized crime involving vehicles then launched an extensive investigation. The car was shipped to Japan shortly after the theft until it was brought to Britain at the end of 2023, according to the police statement.

The vehicle was subsequently seized to prevent export. No one was initially arrested and the investigation is ongoing. In addition to the red Ferrari F512M, a second sports car was also stolen in Italy. Investigators in London wrote that the second vehicle was still missing.
