A number of Andrew Tate’s luxury cars have been seized by police just days after he bragged to activist Greta Thunberg about his collection. 

Tate, 36, is a highly controversial social media influencer who regularly hits the headlines with his ‘misogynistic’ and ‘derogatory’ views about women. 

Conversely, 19-year-old Thunberg is a Swedish climate activist with four Nobel Peace Prize nominations.

Their unlikely feud was kickstarted by Tate tweeting to her about his fleet of supercars – which are reportedly now not in his possession.

Watch as Andrew Tate responds to Greta Thunberg with a video shortly before his arrest…

It all started on December 27 when he taunted Thunberg with a tweet about his 33 cars.

He wrote: “Hello Greta Thunberg. I have 33 cars. My Bugatti has a w16 8.0L quad turbo. My TWO Ferrari 812 competizione have 6.5L v12s. 

“This is just the start. Please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions.”

Thunberg duly obliged his request and went viral with her hilarious response: “Yes, please do enlighten me. Email me at smalld*[email protected].”

Days after the exchange Tate was arrested, along with his younger brother Tristan, by Romanian police as part of an investigation into human trafficking, r*** and organised crime on December 30.

And now, a Romanian official has confirmed that authorities seized 11 cars from Tate and his brother following their arrest.

Ramona Bolla, a spokesperson for Romania’s DIICOT investigations agency, told Insider that the vehicles had been seized to ‘sustain the cost of the investigation’ into Tate.

They explained that the cars may be used as ‘collateral’ to cover the cost of any compensation paid to Tate’s alleged victims.

DIICOT did not detail the makes and models of the cars, but the Romanian newspaper Gândul says it has published photos of some of the ones that have reportedly been seized.

This includes a Rolls-Royce Wraith and an Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate.

Romanian news outlet Spy News also reported (via The Independent) a Buggati Chiron, a Rolls Royce, two Ferrari’s and a Porsche has been seized as part of the investigation.

As well as cars, Romanian authorities are also said to have seized a number of buildings belonging to the brothers.

Bolla said investigators are continuing to try and establish if the cars were attained using money gained from alleged human trafficking.

During their detention hearing, both Tate brothers maintained their right to silence. 

They were originally held for 24 hours, but a Romanian court decided this should be extended to 30 days.
