Fassi & Maserati GHIBLI S

A medium-duty Fassi loader crane made the British papers lifting an illegally parked car belonging to a former German tennis champion

London (UK) – Towards the end of June, it was reported that in Kensington a blue Maserati GHIBLI S belonging to the German former world No.1 professional tennis player Boris Becker was lifted by a medium-duty Fassi crane and taken away after being issued with a parking ticket. The car is estimated to weigh somewhere in the region of 1,810 – 1,870 kg and was parked close to a junction, causing “unnecessary obstruction”.

It was in fact parked on a single yellow line, in an area with hatched markings outside Becker’s private members’ club, the South Kensington Club, on Harrington Road. The Maserati was then taken for impoundment in Chelsea and the 3-time Wimbledon champion will have to pay a large fine to recover his vehicle.
