A YouTuber’s Car Collection Is Being Auctioned Off By Authorities

Estimated read time 2 min read

An automotive YouTuber known as Omi in a Hellcat had his entire car and motorcycle collection seized by the U.S. Marshals and now it’s all getting auctioned off. With 57 lots in the auction, which concludes on October 13, there’s a little bit of something for everyone as Omi’s loss becomes your gain.

Check out some crazy car reposessions here.

The big item most people are talking about is a 2019 Lamborghini Aventador the former owner applied a ridiculous Power Rangers wrap to. The LP740-4 S can be restored to its proper factory look without too much hassle. As of the writing of this article there are 51 bids with the high being $380,000.

Other notable lots include multiple Hellcats (one Redeye), Mark V Supra, BMW M8 Competition, Bentley Continental GT, several more Lamborghinis (two Huracans), C7 Corvette, Jeep Trackhawk, Mustangs, and more. Most of them are white, so the man had his preferences. The guy had quite the collection we’re sure quite a few other people are going to thoroughly enjoy.

In case you’re wondering what Omi, real name Bill Omar Carrasquillo, did to have his entire car collection seized, the United States Attorney’s Office in a press release details out his crimes. It says the man was involved in “a wide-ranging copyright infringement scheme that involved piracy of cable TV, access device fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, and hundreds of thousands of dollars of copyright infringement.”

As a result, he’s serving 66 months in prison, plus has been ordered to pay $15 million in restitution while another $30 million in assets has been forfeited. Fraud might pay in the short term, but when you’re caught you either serve a long prison sentence or have to take up a career in D.C.
