The Institute to Return the Stolen to the People auction this Sunday more jewels and luxury cars at the Los Pinos Cultural Complex.

These are 347 lots, of which 27 are luxury vehicles -7 and the rest jewels seized by the Attorney General's Office (FGR).

The auction, which started at 10:40 a.m., is a continuation of yesterday's exercise at the same headquarters, in which 42 lots were sold for 17 million pesos.

Among the cars that will be auctioned today, and that are exhibited in Los Pinos, are two Mc Laren, two Lamborghini, a Ferrari, a Corvette and an Aston Martin AM6 Vantage.

The most expensive vehicle offered is a Mclaren 720S Coupe Model 2018, whose starting price is 3 million 617 thousand pesos.

According to reports, these vehicles were seized from the hacker band known as "Bandidos Revolution Team".
The leader of this band, identified as Héctor Ortiz Solares, "H-1" or "Bandido Boss", and several members, were arrested in May by the FGR.

The sum of the starting prices of the 674 lots offered between yesterday and today, amounts to 150 million pesos, although it is expected to obtain between 40 and 50 million in both days.

The money obtained from the so-called "mother of all auctions", which will last about four hours today, will go to roads in the municipalities of La Yesca, Nayarit, and Atarjea, Guanajuato.

"Beyond the figures, the important thing is that the resources obtained will go to Guanajuato and Nayarit roads, that is the main objective," said Ricardo Rodríguez, head of the Institute (formerly SAE).

"Obviously the resources will never be enough, but we must also start with something, obviously we must put seed for paving and rehabilitation, they are very important resources that, if they complement each other, can help the objective."


  1. Win win situation for the Mexican government. Sad that this money will go to corrupt officials and not use for something productive.

  2. The family is just buying them back

  3. We will see just how good the quality of those aforementioned Mexican roads becomes.

  4. I am surprised many of the other not yet caught ‘corrupt’ authorities did not steal any of the cash, bullions or jewels before the auction.

    1. @1208: dude these are the spoils left over after the corrupt officials garages and all the fingers of their wives and mistresses are full.

  5. McLarennnnnnn whaaat. Wow!

  6. The buyers are either family or from another country.
