A luxury £200,000 Bentley Mulsanne that was stolen in London has been found more than 5,000 miles away in Pakistan.

The vehicle was recovered by Pakistani Customs Enforcement agents after they received a tip-off from a “friendly nation”.

The Collectorate of Customs Enforcement (CCE), Karachi, confirmed that the UK’s intelligence agency tipped off the Pakistani authorities.

British intelligence traced the car’s location using its tracker.

The Bentley was found parked outside a house in Karachi’s Defence Housing Authority (DHA). The car had been sold to the resident.

It is believed that those involved in the theft failed to remove the tracker.

In a statement, the Federal Board of Revenue’s (FBR) Collectorate of Customs said:

“A credible information was received from a national agency of a friendly country that a grey Bentley Mulsanne, V8 Automatic, VIN Number SCBBA63Y7FC001375, Engine Number CKB304693 was stolen from London and their intelligence agency indicated that the said vehicle is supposed to be parked at 15-B, South 10th Street, DHA, Karachi.”

The Pakistan Defence Officers Housing Authority says the suburb is “a benchmark for providing unparalleled living standards in Pakistan”.

It was reported that the man who purchased the car knew it was stolen.

Officials subsequently took the owner and the broker who sold him the car into custody.

According to sources, the vehicle had been stolen a few weeks back and the thieves managed to import the car into Pakistan using details of a top diplomat of an eastern European country.

The said diplomat is said to have now been recalled by his government.

The Bentley had been refitted with a Pakistani registration plate but officers said the chassis number matched the stolen one that was shared by the UK authorities.

Video footage showed the vehicle being pushed onto a tow truck as the authorities could not find the keys.

Officials said:

“Due to non-availability of the key of the said vehicle, arrangements were made to lift the vehicle by car carrier.”

“The recovered vehicle was loaded on a car carrier for taking it to ASO HQ-NMB Wharf for the further completion of legal formalities.”

According to the FIR, more than Rs. 300 million (£1.1 million) in taxes were evaded due to the importation of the stolen car.

Following the two arrests, officials are currently working to identify those who are behind the whole racket.
