KLEPTOCRACY

Rumor has it that a collection of luxury cars belonging to the family of Kazakhstan former president will be put up for sale in New York City.

Pin it

There is a rumor among NYC’s auc­tion bro­kers about one of prob­a­bly the largest Christmas auc­tions of this year: they say that infor­ma­tion about a forth­com­ing sale of Dariga Nazarbayeva’s (daugh­ter of the for­mer pres­i­dent of Kazakhstan) cars col­lec­tion briefly appeared on the Guernsey’s web­site and was lat­er removed.

There is even a list of cars that were sup­posed to be put up for the auc­tion:

- Ferrari F40;

- Ferrari Testarossa;

- Bugatti Veyron;

- Lamborghini Miura;

- Lamborghini Murcielago;

- Lamborghini Urus;

- Koenigsegg Agera S;

- Pagani Zonda;

- Alfa Romeo 8C;

A total of 9 unique cars, val­ued at about $13 mil­lion start­ing price. You could only guess what the final prices would have been.

According to insid­ers infor­ma­tion, the auc­tion was orig­i­nal­ly sched­uled for late December, but at the last moment it was decid­ed to resched­ule the event to the end of the first quar­ter of 2020.

Most like­ly, Guernsey’s was­n’t cho­sen as the auc­tion house by chance: here, a few months ago, Elizabeth Taylor’s Rolls-Royce was auc­tioned off. No offi­cial con­fir­ma­tion of this infor­ma­tion was found.
