Here’s something you don’t see every day. A British expat fled Dubai in 2011 and left his $1.6 million Ferrari Enzo behind.

Today, the abandoned Ferrari will go up for auction in what could potentially be the most expensive police sale in history.

Dubai’s traffic department director, Major General Mohammed Saif Al Zaffin, reports that this particular abandoned Ferrari Enzo was wanted by Interpol. It was left in a parking space twenty months ago after racking up too many parking tickets.

The Dubai government has the right to auction off any vehicle that’s been abandoned for more than six months. The auction itself will feature a grand total of 129 seized vehicles, 23 of which are luxury cars. They carry fines of around $27,000.

There are many cases in Dubai that face jail time for outstanding debts.
