In Mexico, supercars will be put up for sale to help the poorMay 26, 2019
The Mexican government is organizing an auction that will exhibit 82 luxury cars confiscated by the police from criminals. The proceeds from their sales will go to help poor communities. This is reported by Channel News Asia.
Among the cars that go under the hammer, there is the Lamborghini Murcielago roadster, three Porsche, several Chevrolet Corvette, as well as “dozens of luxury armored cars.” Registration fee for participation in the auction will be only five dollars.
Mexican authorities expect to gain at least one and a half million dollars from the sale of luxury cars. The money will be distributed between the two municipalities in Oaxaca, which is one of the poorest states in the south of the country.
In addition to cars, three houses with a total value of at least three million dollars will be sold at auction. The funds will be put to fight teenage addiction. In addition, the jewels confiscated during raids against organized criminal groups will go under the hammer.
