Ferrari finds Formula 1 star's stolen car after 28 years

It was Ferrari itself that tipped off the police when the brand discovered that a stolen car had been brought into the workshop.

For almost three decades, Formula 1 driver Gerhard Berger has been missing his Ferrari 512M. But now a special unit under the London police has found it. Even with good help from Ferrari itself.

Because it was the car brand itself that sounded the alarm when it was discovered that a 512M, which was for review at a workshop, had been reported stolen.

The car had been bought by an American from a dealer in England. But now it will not come across the Atlantic.

That is according to London's Metropolitan Police .

But the police have already managed to sniff out a bit of the car's fate as stolen goods for the past 28 years.

After the theft, which actually took place during the San Marino grand prix in 1995, the car was shipped to Japan, before it came to England last year. Subsequently, the police impounded the car to ensure that it does not disappear again.

To make matters worse, Jean Alesi's, a teammate of Gerhard Berger's, Ferrari F355 disappeared during exactly the same grand prix 28 years ago.

That car has not yet been found. The police in London have not charged anyone in the case either, but state that the case is still being investigated.

For the same reason, it is also uncertain what will happen to Berger's 512M. A car that was the last bottling of the already legendary Testarossa.

That meant 501 cars with 4.9-liter V12 engines with 441 horsepower. Of those, 75 were right-hand drive and another 75 were sold specifically to the American audience.
