The French footballer Benjamin Mendy, who plays at Manchester City, would have had his SVJ Aventador confiscated.

According to the British publication The Sun, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ of French footballer Benjamin Mendy, a member of the Manchester City team, was seized by the authorities across the Channel after a check revealed that the player was driving it without insurance and without a valid driver’s license.
The car was allegedly purchased and registered in France. It is said to have been held by the police for about three weeks pending regularization of the papers by its owner. If Mendy was too late, the supercar could be auctioned off or even destroyed.

Mendy “not very good” at paperwork

Mendy would currently be in the middle of a race to regularize the situation and get his car back in one piece. A source in The Sun is quoted as saying: “Ben is a very good footballer but he’s not very good at administrative details like paperwork. He didn’t realize he wasn’t insured, so it’s a monumental blunder on his part.”

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most extreme road variant of the Aventador with its 6.5L naturally aspirated V12 engine delivering 770 hp. Production of the coupe was limited to 900 units and the roadster to 800 units, for a base price of over 400,000€ in France.
