MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Customs (BOC) on Saturday warned the owner of a blue Bugatti Chiron car, which is said to be smuggled, to surrender or else there will be consequences.

According to BOC Commissioner Bienvenido Rubio, the agency has information on the location of the car, but they are still verifying it.

“Surrender, or you will face the consequences. We already have the information on the location of the car, but we are still verifying this. But for the owner, it would be better for him to surrender, similar to what the owner of the red Bugatti did yesterday,” he said.


The car is one of two Bugatti cars that the agency has been looking for. On Friday, the owner of the smuggled red Bugatti car surrendered the vehicle.

The BOC said that the two luxury cars were worth P165 million each without customs duties and taxes, and were last seen in Pasay, Pasig, Muntinlupa, and Cavite.

“To the owner of the blue Bugatti, I promise that we will find you. A sports car like this attracts attention on the road. With the promise of a cash reward, we expect to receive information as soon as you drive your car on the road. It’s going to be a small world from now on,” Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service Director Verne Enciso added.

The BOC added that it first received word of the alleged smuggled vehicles in November 2023, which later revealed that the cars did not have the proper legal documentation.

The agency likewise said that the owners of the vehicles will face charges for violating customs laws.
