Disgraced racer Scott Tucker’s supercar collection, seized by the U.S. Government, is up for auction

Ferrari and Porsche abound.



By Kyle Smith, Hagerty

The United States government has seized four supercars, and anyone can place a bid. Intrigued? Here’s the backstory. The cars, two Ferraris and two Porsches which have a combined value of more than $2M, were owned by disgraced gentleman racer Scott Tucker. As explained in an episode of Netflix’s Dirty Money documentary series, Tucker allegedly funded his racing and car collecting with illegal predatory payday lending businesses.



Seizure of the cars, courtesy of Uncle Sam, followed Tucker’s arrest and prosecution. The list comes from CWS Asset Management and Sales, which is a primary contractor for the U.S. Treasury Department. The company is set to sell the cars February 5 at the Circuit of America’s Event Center in Del Valle, Texas. It seems like an apt venue, considering the cars.



A four-car auction may seem like small potatoes in the grand scheme of things, but these cars are a big deal. (Not quite at the absurd level of the seized supercars, in Geneva last year, though.) First is a 2011 Ferrari 599 SA Aperta, alongside a 2011 Ferrari 599XX. The other two wear Porsche badges—a 2011 911 GT2 RS and a gorgeous black 2005 Carrera GT. Any one of these cars could be a featured lot at a larger auction.

We’ll soon find out if and how Tucker’s ownership history will affect the bidding. Stay tuned.
