Lamborghini Stolen in Switzerland Found in Ghana with Nigerian Plate Number, Photo Emerges

Deniz Torun, the owner of Luxus Car, a luxury car rental company based in Zurich, Switzerland, claims an alleged Ghanaian stole his Lamborghini car in June.

According to Blick newspaper, a Zurich local media, 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 Lamborghini Huracan Spyder has a powerful V10 engine and costs a good 200,000 francs in Switzerland, Blick newspaper notes.

It also claimed that the Ghanaian, after seeing his photos on social media, contacted the owner, begging for a chance to resolve the issue amicably.

"It's embarrassing, please delete the pictures of me. We can do that among ourselves," the man was alleged to have written.

However, Torun told via Facebook chat that the Ghanaian did not reach out to him for amicable resolution as Luxury Rental Benelux claimed.

He, however, admitted that Luxury Rental Benelux sent him the pictures of the stolen car, though he did not know him.

Curiously, Luxury Rental Benelux has also deleted pictures of the car and the alleged thief from its Instagram page.

Note that cannot independently verify the claims by Torun and Luxury Rental Benelux that Lamborghini car allegedly spotted in Ghana with Nigerian plate number belongs to Torun.
