A GANG who sold fake sports cars, including Ferraris, has been arrested in Spain.
Police seized 17 models from two warehouses in Madrid after receiving a complaint from the Italian car manufacturer.
The cars were sold for €40,000, but despite customers being aware that the models were not genuine, Ferrari claimed it was a breach of industrial property rights.
Eight men, from Madrid and Valencia, created models including Ferrari F430s and F458 Spiders, as well as two Aston Martins and customised the cars to order.
Police are attempting to trace cars previously sold by the gang, which they believe may have been shipped abroad.
