Influencer’s fury as cops tow away FOUR of his supercars worth over £750K for speeding around city with palsAugust 10, 2021
MEXICAN influencer Alfredo Valenzuela was left furious after police towed away four of his supercars worth over £750,000.
Around 30 police units surrounded Valenzuela in the city of Zapopan on August 6 to confiscate his luxury cars.
The YouTuber posted about the incident to his social media account in the early hours of Friday morning.
He claimed that the authorities had an issue with him as this was the second time his cars had been taken away.
"31 patrols to take my cars off me because they didn't have licence plates as if I were a major criminal," he wrote.
Valenzuela posted photos of his sports cars being loaded onto tow trucks on the orders of the traffic police while he was surrounded by a large police roadblock.
According to local reports, the cars were towed away because they did not have licence plates and because the influencer was allegedly taking part in drag races across the city.
In a live stream video from that morning, Valenzuela said he had just left a restaurant when the police blocked his path, and he was surprised that the large police presence was, in fact, for him.
The cars seized in the operation were a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, a McLaren 720S, an Audi R8 and a Chevrolet Camaro.
The Lamborghini alone has a starting price of £360,000.
The Jalisco Traffic Police explained the motive for the impoundment by taking to social media to write: "Speed is not a good strategy.
"Bringing out your toys to race on the streets of our city undermines everyone's road safety.
"Furthermore, driving without licence plates, with expired permits, and even without a licence is enough for them to spend the night in the impound lot."
Valenzuela boasts 2.82 million subscribers on YouTube, 1.3 million followers on Instagram and 1.2 million followers on Facebook.
Despite being just 28 years old, the car enthusiast has an estimated net worth of £4.33 million, according to the website Idol Net Worth.
He posted his first video to YouTube in July 2018, and it is not clear how he amassed such wealth in such a short space of time.
His latest brush with the law is not his first.
He was arrested in August last year and spent three days behind bars for taking part in clandestine drag races.
At the time of his arrest, he was accompanied by two armed bodyguards who were not carrying licences for their guns.
His subsequent release from prison was conditional on his future good behaviour.
