A fleet of 11 exotic machines, among which we can find two examples of the Bugatti Veyron, was recently auctioned for $4.06 million (EUR3.1 million). The vehicles had been seized by the Frech authorities from Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, the son of Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.

The cars were taken away following an action that saw the man beign charged with public fund redirection back in 2011. The fleet was placed within the President’s mansion on the Champs Elysess in Paris. Apart from the two Veyrons, the fleet includes a Ferrari Enzo, its Maseratti MC12 counterpart, a Porche Carrera GT, a Ferrari 599 GTO, two Bentleys, a Rolls Royce, a Maybach and an Aston Martin.

The vehicles went under the hammer at the Drouot action house, with most of them having a ridiculously small mileage.
