there has long been talk of the classic collection which is the owner Jordi Pujol Ferrusola, the eldest son of the former president of the Generalitat of Catalonia, Jordi Pujol, and now engaged in a number of cases in the imputed offences of money laundering, tax fraud, and falsehood documentary, among others. His collection of classic became a letter-perfect presentation in order to present the wealth, and the lifestyle of the family Pujol, from the point of view of the media. And that is, why not say it, do not leave to call the attention that anyone can afford to have a collection of various Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, etc. But what of truth are as valuable as they seem?
The value of these cars in the market is far superior to the 1.6 million euros in which would have been valued by the Treasury.
According to the own involved, and Marta Ferrusola, his mother, got classics in a poor state (RTVE) and a very good price. In the acquisition of classics, had found a good deal, sometimes taking advantage of opportunities, friends and acquaintances that they needed liquidity immediately and malvendían their parts to obtain liquidity.
Indeed, there is the possibility of so doing, although we find it hard to believe that it came to acquire parts as listed as a Ferrari F40 or a Lamborghini Miura around 10,000€, who claimed to have paid, on average, per these cars in his appearance in the Parliament of Catalonia.
The last video published by The Vanguard, of a new record to the industrial warehouse in Barcelona in which Pujol Ferrusola kept your collection, you can appreciate machines really exotic. Anyone who does not understand much of cars, the fact of seeing a Ferrari or a Lamborghini may look spectacular, but even more if we see what parts it comes. A Ferrari F40 in good condition can be sold in Europe for anything less than a million euros. With the Lamborghini Miura the same thing happens, with prices that can reach up to several million euros if it is of the versions of this sport, although it does not seem to be the case for this specific car (it looks like a P400S). We talk about classics that have made history, highly prized and desired by collectors.
In the video also shows a Ferrari Testarossa, and a Porsche 911 1973 with details that make it look like the Carrera RS, which would make that again we were talking about figures close to one million euros. But apparently it is not a Carrera RS of the original seventy. This 911 is the famous Porsche that was decorated with a Catalan flag on the hood, and apparently, as seen in this video, I would have gone.
In the video also appreciate other classics several as a MGB, some of which did not appear in the collection declared in the Paralment, as acknowledged also included a Mercedes SLR McLaren, a Lamborghini Diablo, and a Jaguar E-Type.
