Customs officials in the northern city of Hai Phong said Friday that they have confiscated four luxury cars worth a total of some VND10 billion (US$480,500) which had been smuggled into Vietnam.
The cars - two BMWs, one Mercedes-Benz and one Volkswagen were found in two containers which arrived at the local Green Port on February 26, according to customs.
The containers transported from the US were declared to contain aluminum coils and leaves and dock levelers, they said.
The Hanoi-based Thuy Anh Minh Company was listed as the addressee, but it refused upon learning containers' contents, customs added.
A report on the news website VnMedia of the state-owned Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group said among the cars were a BMW X6, a BMW 750 Li, and a Mercedes-Benz S550.
Investigations are ongoing.
