Lamborghini Gallardo among seized luxury goods at auction in Northern Ireland

By Adrian Rutherford

A Lamborghini Gallardo is to go under the hammer in the latest crime proceeds auction.

Designer watches and Apple products will also feature in the sale next Thursday, September 28.

Bidders will have the chance to purchase a Mercedes A45 AMG, BMW X6 and BMW X5, gold coins, two sailing yachts and personalised number plates.

All of the goods were seized by law enforcement agencies in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The auction is unreserved, meaning no minimum bids were required on any item.

Wilsons Auctions' group asset recovery manager Aidan Larkin said: "The role we play in realising these important assets is vital to our clients as well as the process in raising the money which ultimately goes straight back into the public purse.

"In recent years we have been responsible for returning in excess of £85m to government coffers.

"Items include government repossessed assets and proceeds of crime related assets as well as corporate liquidation stock."
