The Bureau of Customs seized a misdeclared and undervalued Lamborghini Aventador on March 23 at the Manila International Container Port (MICP).

Based on shipping documents, the shipment arrived on February 23 from Hong Kong consigned to JRQ Car Trading and declared as one brand new Lamborghini Huracan.

The smuggled luxury vehicle, with a value of P45 million, was found after the Intelligence Group alerted the MICP-Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service Field Station for a possible smuggling attempt. An alert order was immediately issued by MICP district collector Romeo Allan Rosales.

A warrant of seizure and detention will be issued against the shipment for violation of Section 1400 concerning Section 1113 of Republic Act 10863 (Customs Modernization and Tariff Act).
