A multi million naira Lamborghini car stolen from a luxury rental Benelux in Switzerland in June has reportedly been sighted in Ghana but with a Nigerian plate number customised with the name “Chosen 1.”
The Luxury Rental Benelux, a car rental company, posted on Instagram via its username, luxuryrentalbenelux claiming that a Lamborghini car belonging to a friend has been stolen after the car was rented in June in Zurich, Switzerland.
According to Luxury Rental Benelux, the Lamborghini which has been reportedly sighted in Ghana has a Nigerian number plate customised with the name, “Chosen 1”. The company promised a cash reward of €10,000 for anyone who has tips regarding the current location of the car and how it can be found.
In another version of the report by Zurich local media, Blick, identified the owner of the car as Deniz Torun, aged 30. The specific model of the car is Lamborghini Huracan Spyder (610 hp) while its original number plate is ZG-27482. The newspaper reports that Torun said he rented the car to a young man with a Ghanaian passport in front of the Hilton Airport Hotel in Opfikon ZH, a municipality in Switzerland.
“He was a guest in this hotel, so I trusted him, I did not worry about my Lambo,” Torun told the local newspaper. Torun said the supposed Ghanaian, however, did not return the car on the scheduled date and had upgraded its GPS, making it difficult for him to locate. The last location Torun tracked the car to was Jestetten, a town in Germany.
The police in Zurich have reportedly started investigating the alleged theft.
After the posts on the missing car went viral, the person in possession of the luxury car decided to contact the car renting company and call for negotiation
