A FAKE car factory turning old bangers into Ferraris and Lamborghinis has been rumbled by Spanish cops.

The gang were turning second-hand Toyotas, Fords and Peugeots into ‘top-of-the-range’ cars in a Girona sweatshop.

Counterfeit Ferrari and Lamborghini body kits, signs and fittings were bolted onto the clapped-out cars to dupe buyers before being advertised online for up to €41,000.

During a raid, police uncovered four ‘completed’ cars with 14 more on the production line.

Three people have been arrested.

  1. Nobody would fall for one of these “ringers” It’s more in the region of people who buy fake Rolex watches in order to impress fellow thickies.
