Smuggled cars put up for auction

The Customs Department organised an auction of 355 seized smuggled cars at its headquarters in Bangkok on Thursday and expected to raise more than 600 million baht for government coffers.

Customs director-general Somchai Sujjapongse said the cars put up for action included 74 Mercedes Benz, 31 Bentleys, 15 Jaguars, four Lexus and one Lamborghini. He expected the Customs Department to raise over 600 million baht from the auction.

Last year the department sold 279 seized cars in its previous auction and generated 546 million baht for the state.
