After the arrest of Kim Schmitz (Kim Dotcom) in recent days and the closing of its Web site Megaupload, the list of the many cars seized by the FBI has come to light. Check pictures at the end of this article.
Something what I can be sure of, is that the owner of the MegaUpload, portal that allowed users to share files, in most cases violating automotive copyright laws is a big fan of Mercedes-Benz, particularly of the sports division AMG.
Among the list of the 24 cars seized, 14 are from the German house, with some MINI, Maserati, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce to vary things a bit, even a couple of classic Cadillacs are on the list.

Something that also is worth mentioning is the plate numbers that have his cars. All are custom numbers that give some personality to each car.
Kim Schmitz faces a sentence of 50 years in prison and we have to wait to see what will happen with all these cars as well as the rest of his properties. If they are auctioned, there are several babies in this list that could be sold for much money, as the case of the Mercedes CLK DTM AMG.
Well, this is the complete list of cars confiscated to Kim Dotcom by the FBI during the closing operation of MegaUpload:
