For what it’s worth, the sight of seeing a Ferrari model as elegant as the 458 Spider is a bit disturbing to watch. Regardless, there is more to this than what we are seeing. According to a new report, a convicted felon from the United Kingdom has decided to file a lawsuit against the local police for crashing his Ferrari 458 Spider.
Khan's Ferrari 458 Spider was crushed back in 2018 by the local authorities in the UK
The man is identified as Zahid Khan, who reportedly fled to Dubai shortly before he was found guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud, perverting course of justice and concealment of criminal property on license plate scam. The 38-year-old should be spending at least 10 years of prison time in the UK but is hiding out in Dubai where he is enjoying his wealth.
The convicted felon is presently in Dubai living large, after fleeing prosecution in the UK
Meanwhile, in a twist of events, the convicted felon is set to sue the West Midlands Police for crushing his expensive Italian model. In 2017, Khan made headlines when he parked his Ferrari on the pavement by the Birmingham Crown Court. This made the local authorities confiscate the supercar. Surprisingly, the car was found not to be roadworthy and also without valid insurance. This puts it in Category B and by implication must be crushed.

Apparently, the car was destroyed in 2018 at a local scrapyard. Khan revealed recently that he had begun proceedings against the West Midlands Police for what he termed as unlawful conduct in destroying his £200k Ferrari 458 Spider.
The spokeswoman to the West Midlands Police, in response to the allegations made by Khan, revealed that the police had denied the initial letter of claim lodged by the man directly to the force. She further stated that the police department will respond to his claim at the court in due course. Presently, the police are working on extraditing Khan back to the UK to face justice.
