Berger’s Ferrari missing for 30 years: Scotland Yard finds it

Date:

It was Scotland Yard that found the 512M Testarossa, naturally Ferrari red in colour, stolen in 1995. A limbo that lasted around 30 years for the super car stolen from the then Austrian driver, Gerhard Berger, during the days of the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola. This was reported by Modena Today.

In January, London’s Metropolitan Police received a report from Ferrari, which had carried out checks on a car purchased by an American through a British broker in 2023: from the checks, which the Maranello company routinely carries out on vintage vehicles , it turned out that it was a stolen vehicle.

British agents then launched a worldwide investigation and found that it had been shipped to Japan shortly after being stolen, only to return to the UK in late 2023.

In 4 days Berger’s Ferrari was tracked down and detained, to prevent the car from being exported from the United Kingdom again.

Scotland Yard explained: “The stolen Ferrari – worth close to £350,000 – disappeared for more than 28 years before we managed to trace it in just four days. Our investigations were thorough and included contact with authorities around the world. We worked quickly with partners including the National Crime Agency, as well as Ferrari and international car dealers, and this collaboration was instrumental in understanding the vehicle’s background and preventing it from leaving the country.”

However, it has not yet been possible to trace who carried out the robbery in Imola in 1995. It was stolen in front of the hotel where Berger was staying together with Jean Alesi’s gray 355 B which was in the garage.
