The Ferrari Testarossa stolen from Berger in ’95 in Imola has been found

Stolen in 1995, the red Ferrari 512M Testarossa that belonged to Ferrari driver Gerhard Berger has finally been found. The announcement came from Scotland Yard and put an end to an almost 30-year mystery. The theft caused a sensation because it occurred during the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola and because in addition to the Austrian’s custom-built car, the thieves, probably the same ones, also disappeared with a gray ‘355 B’ which belonged to Jean Alesi.

The two drivers – who in that race achieved second and third place at the wheel of Ferraris behind the British Williams driver Damon Hill – went together to report the incident.

The Testarossa was stolen outside the hotel where the drivers were staying, the other car was in the garage. The total value of the two vehicles was then around half a billion lire. The London Metropolitan Police launched an investigation in January after receiving a report from Ferrari, which had carried out checks on a car purchased by an American through a broker British in 2023, which revealed that it had been stolen. Officers discovered the Testarossa had been shipped to Japan shortly after it was stolen from Berger and then taken to the UK late last year, so police took possession of it. The Testarossa is now valued at 350 thousand pounds, over 400 thousand euros.
