CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwest Ohio judge has ruled that a decades-long international dispute over a rare luxury car must come to an end in an auction within a year.
The vehicle in question is one of six ever made 1954 Ferrari 375 Plus Spider.
It once belonged to a Cincinnati car aficionado who later sold it to a Westwood man. Court records show the man removed some of the car's parts to prevent its theft, but the 12-cylinder vehicle was later stolen and disappeared until 1989 when it was imported to Europe.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1fpWZhf ) reports the judge last week ordered that the car's parts that are still in Cincinnati, the refurbished car and its original motor be auctioned to end a 2010 lawsuit brought by one of the alleged owners.
