£1.2million Ferrari among fleet of 80 supercars destroyed in ‘arson attack’
A FLEET of luxury supercars worth millions have been burnt to the ground in a suspected arson attack.
Firefighters could not save the 80 vehicles thought to include a £1.2milllion Ferrari as well as Lamborghinis, Porsches and Jaguars at 10pm on Monday.
The motors are believed to be owned by a wealthy classic car dealer and were stored in two outbuildings on farmland in Over Peover village in Cheshire.
One is said to be worth £3million and was reportedly held as part of a finance scheme.
Among the wrecked cars was believed to be a LaFerrari – a rare, limited edition Ferrari worth £1.2million.
Pictures show the carnage left by the inferno including a burnt out Jaguar XJ and other supercars left unrecognisable.
A source said: “The owner is absolutely devastated. Most of the motors were classics with some almost one of a kind.
“Even if the insurance covers it, you can’t compensate for the loss of motoring history in those two hangars.”
Cheshire Constabulary said: “A joint investigation by firefighters and police is continuing into the cause of the fire which is believed to have been started deliberately.”
