Ponzi Scheme Pays Off: Exotic Cars Up for Auction

Bugatti

Scott Rothstein was sent to jail in January for running a Ponzi scheme that bilked clients an estimated $1.2 billion. That money bought Rothstein a lot of very nice cars, and they’re hitting the auction block June 3 with a preview on May 10, 26, 27 and June 2.
 
The full list of cars is below. Personally, we’d take the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo.

  • 2008 Bugatti Veyron    
  • 2009 Bentley Continental GTC   
  • 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom   
  • 2009 Ferrari 430 Spyder   
  • 1967 Corvette convertible   
  • 2007 Ford Expedition limousine   
  • 2008 Cadillac Escalade   
  • 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLR    
  • 2009 Maserati GranTurismo    
  • 2010 Lamborghini LP-670 SV

The only ones worth buying are the Corvette and the Escalade. The rest are imports and should be sent to the scrap heap.

I wouldn't buy an American car again until Fed Motors pays back its debt to us taxpayers.

1487 posting at insideline was more reasonable with his/her GM-love... Let's not go nuts and lump the Ford with one of the "imports"

@me, and how do you expect them to be able to pay back the money with interest? They just can't get the money out of thin air. Was I for the bailouts? No, but saying stuff like that just shows how strange America truly is and how we are the only country that would wish our manufacturers to fail.

I'll take the Bugatti please!

Ya right. I'll be more lucky to have a good week without my 2008 GMC breaking down than actually owning a Veyron!
