There are six Bugattis, nine Ferraris, seven Rolls Royces as well as Lamborghinis and more.

In total the cars are worth around CHF 45m.

Some have been recovered – but only CHF 2m worth.

They belong to 47-year-old Khadem al-Qubaisi who used to be president of the Zurich-based Falcon Bank and head of the Emirati sovereign wealth fund.

Some cars have been tracked down to a garage in Munich, but appeals to German courts to retrieve them have failed so far.
