US rapper Mr Capone-E has vowed to buy his friend, Zahid Khan, a brand new Ferrari after Mr Khan’s Ferrari Spider 458 was crushed by police.
The top US rapper, who lives in California, also said he is writing a new song which will be dedicated to the crushed £248,000 Ferrari.
Mr Capone-E had previously used the white 458 Spider owned by Mr Khan for the song ‘Rarri’, which is about a Ferrari and a beautiful girl.
He also used the Ferrari numerous times to travel in when he last visited Birmingham.
Mr Capone-E said: ‘That Ferrari was a car that I always liked.
‘We previously did a whole song based on that Ferrari called Rarri and shot the video in the UK and America.
‘The car could have been auctioned off for charity instead of crushing it.’
He went on to talk about his deep friendship with Mr Khan who has showed him ‘love’ every time he has visited the UK.
He said: ‘I have known Zahid for a few years and every time I come to the UK he shows me love.
‘He also showed my Friend Floyd Mayweather a lot of love when I bought him to Birmingham.
‘Zahid is one of those guys who shows hospitality to anyone who touches down in the UK.
‘We have a new song in the works which will be dedicated to the Ferrari and I’m also thinking of buying a Ferrari for Zahid for all the hospitality he has shown whenever I come to the UK.
‘I also want to show people are positive out in the world as this is painting a bad image to a person with good character.’
‘Millionaire’ Zahid Khan is now in the process of suing West Midlands Police after seeing the footage of his Ferrari being crushed after it was seized by officers, which left him ‘physically sick’.
31-year-old Khan said his solicitor has sent a letter to the force informing of his intentions to sue over the loss of the £250,000 car.
The vehicle was seized after police suspected it was stolen but after further checks were done they deemed the vehicle to be a Category B with no valid insurance.
However, Mr Khan remains adamant police ‘illegally’ destroyed his ‘sentimental’ Ferrari and claims he sourced all parts used in the car from official sources and now plans on taking legal action.
He said: “I can’t believe they have destroyed my car.
“It has taken them almost one year to release the video, I wonder why.
“My car was insured, and I was the owner.
“I love supercars and have owned a number of them and loved this car.
“I saved to buy this car, and it was sentimental to me and my family.
“The police had no right to do what they did, it’s very sad, this money could have gone to a good cause.
“Ferrari parts are worth more than the car itself.
“That car was my pride and joy. It took me six months to rebuild it and I used 114 different parts. It cost me around £248,000.
“I’m planning on taking the officer to court for breaching a court order and unlawfully destroying my car.”
“I saved my ass off to buy this car and it was of sentimental value to me and my family.
