Manchester Benjamin Mendi fights to save £ 475,000 Lambo from the crusher

Manchester City star Benjamin Mendy is fighting time to prevent the £ 475,000 supercar from being crushed.

His white Lamborghini Aventador SVJ was confiscated by police last month.

They stopped the £ 52m ace because they drove without a valid license or insurance.

However, 20 days after the car was delivered, French defender Mendy has not yet documented it.

Police usually store cars for 14 days before selling or crushing them at auction.

One source said: “Ben is a great soccer player, but he’s not good at bureaucratic details such as paperwork.

“It’s a monumental failure on his part because he didn’t realize he wasn’t insured.

“He’s desperately trying to fix it, but the fact that 20 days have passed since his car was confiscated puts him at risk of destroying it.

“Police knew he wanted to get it back and would be happy to return it, but only when he provided the necessary paperwork.

“I’m worried that after almost three weeks he hasn’t organized it yet. It’s a beautiful car and he just wants to put it back in one part.”

“I’m worried that he hasn’t been able to sort it out after almost three weeks,” said one source.

The 26-year-old Mendy was pulled in Prestbury, Cheshire at 5 am on November 15.

The motor with the French license plate was taken to the Macclesfield police station and is now in a safe condition.

Mendy, who joined Citi in 2017, bought a car in France and was filmed driving a car in Cannes this summer.

The SVJ, capable of 0-60mph in 3 seconds, is an improved version of just 900 Aventador S.

According to the Cheshire Police website, drivers who need to retrieve a vehicle can retrieve it in 14 days.

The unit charges £ 150 to get in the car and £ 20 a day for storage. “Preparations are being made to retrieve the vehicle,” a spokeswoman said.

Last year, 137,410 vehicles were confiscated uninsured, according to the Auto Insurance Department. Uninsured drivers face a £ 300 fine and six penalty points as the car is crushed.

In June, Manchester United star Paul Pogba explained how he seized France-registered Rolls-Royce in Manchester.

Foreign cars staying in the UK for more than 6 months a year must be registered with a DVLA and fitted with a UK plate.

However, if the owner is a resident of the UK, the car must be registered within two weeks of import.

Asked Manchester for comment.

Manchester claims that Benjamin Mendi did not violate coronavirus rules after having a “15 guest party” in a £ 2m mansion.
