Dictator's rides seized in France
Teodoro Mbasogo, president of Equatorial Guinea, may need to restock his garage in France now that police have seized 11 supercars owned by the African dictator's son.

GTSpirit.com reports that French authorities seized the vehicles at Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo's home in Paris. Among them were two Bugatti Veyrons, a Maserati MC12, a Porsche Carrera GT, a Ferrari Enzo and a Ferrari 599 GTO. 

Mbasogo and his son Teodorin are being investigated for allegedly using their nation's funds to buy property around the globe along with  charges of corruption. Teodorin, who has quite an impressive supercar collection of his own, is the owner of one of the most expensive houses in California, USA.

Our video shows a Maserati MC12 belonging to Teodorin being loaded on a police truck. An Aston Martin V8 V600 LM and a Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe are also visible and in the background a yellow Porsche Carrera GT.

Though this would be a tremendous loss to any car connoisseur Mbasogo and his son have plenty of supercars to go around in garages globally.
