LOS ANGELES What’s left of a rare Ferrari that authorities say a Swedish businessman crashed into a utility pole will be shipped back to Great Britain.
On Friday a judge ordered the red Ferrari Enzo, as well as a black Enzo and Mercedes- Benz S-L-R, released to British banks _ over the objections of attorneys for Swedish businessman Bo Stefan Eriksson.
Eriksson’s lawyers [Jim Parkman, William White and Alec Rose] claim he owns the pricey vehicles.
Prosecutors say Eriksson illegally imported all three vehicles to U-S from Great Britain. One of the Enzos was destroyed in February, when he hit a utility pole on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu while allegedly traveling 162 miles an hour.
The cars are currently being held in Sheriff’s Department impound lots as Eriksson awaits trial.
