A Glance at the $8Million Lamborghini Seized from an African Dictator’s Son Just Became the Most Expensive Ever Sold

A 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster just fetched $8.27 at an auction in Switzerland on Sunday, making it the world’s most expensive Lamborghini ever auctioned according to the auction house.

The car was a part of a collection of 26 supercars that was auctioned off by Bonham and the State of Geneva . The cars were originally seized from Equatorial Guinean Vice President Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, son of the oil-rich country’s dictator Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.

Obiang Mangue was charged in 2017 for money laundering and embezzlement of over $100 million, although the charges were dropped this past February, the Washington Post reported . The cars were seized one year prior.

The 26 supercars fetched almost $27 million in total at the auction. A portion of the sales , about $23.46 million, will be donated to a charity in Equatorial Guinea.
