MANILA - The Bureau of Customs on Tuesday destroyed a Ferrari sports car and millions worth of cigarettes that were smuggled into the country earlier this year.

Consignee Camama Autohub declared the P7-million Ferrari as auto spare parts and shipped it to the country in May, Customs officials said.

The sports car was stripped of its motor and 2 doors before it was smuggled into the country.

It was towed to the Bureau of Customs' parking lot where a bulldozer ran over the luxury vehicle.

The bureau also destroyed a cigarette-making machine and fake cigarettes amounting to P150 million.

The fake tobacco products were confiscated from a warehouse in Tacloban City in February.
