ANDREW Tate’s prized £5million Bugatti supercar and his £20million villa are set to be seized by cops, prosecutors have said.
Romanian cops are going after the two pricey assets as they continue to probe Tate – who remains in jail accused with trafficking and rape.

Tate is believed to have purchased both assets in 2022.
And the Bugatti is the same one which he used to taunt eco-activist Greta Thunberg.
His spat with Thunberg as he shared pictures of himself with a pizza on Twitter came just days before he was arrested.
Romanian police are seizing the assets pending the criminal investigation.
And should Tate be convicted, it is believed they will be auctioned off.
Tate’s mansion – which backs onto a golf course and has a view of the city – was reportedly bought in the summer of 2022.
It has six bedrooms, a pool, a gym, and a home cinema covered in posters of James Bond.
The villa was widely pictured in a video were Tate flew a hairdresser from Canada to give him a haircut at the mansion.
The barber was reportedly paid £8,000.
The luxurious villa would see him being neighbours with figures such as football legend David Beckham and Putin crony Ramzan Kadyrov.
Tate’s prized Bugatti is one of just 60 such cars in the world, being capable of going from 0 to 60mph in just 2.4 seconds with a top speed of 305mph.
It is regarded as one of the fastest, most expensive and luxurious supercars in the world.
Tate’s money and his assets are being chased down by Romanian organised crime-busting cops, DIICOT, as part of the wide-ranging probe.
Some £6million worth of supercars – including a Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and Lamborghini – have already been seized from his compound in Romania.
Other assets seized by the cops reportedly include expensive watches and guns.
Andrew and Tristan Tate both deny all allegations against them.
Romania’s National Agency for the Management of Seized Assets have now made requests to authorities in Dubai.

The Tates have had all their appeals for release denied as Romanian authorities consider them a flight risk.
Tate built up a sickening image that appealed to teenage boys – creating an online empire that made him one of the most searched people on Google
Masquerading as lifestyle advice, much of the content is actually highly sexist and promotes violence against women.
His influence has had a worrying spread amongst young men and boys, with one UK MP saying he is “brainwashing” children.
Tate initially gained fame after a short-lived appearance on Big Brother.
He was dumped from the reality show after alleged footage of him beating a woman emerged online.
Since then he has sparked revulsion and outrage with a wave of warped content online.
Labour MP Alex Davies-Jones called on the UK Government to take action on the spread of Tate’s content – with teachers already revealing a worrying spread in schools.
“Schools across the UK are in crisis as the effect of online influencer Andrew Tate’s vile misogyny infiltrates our classrooms and society,” said Ms Davies Jones MP.
“Teachers are now having to develop their own resources to re-educate boys who are being brainwashed online by his deeply toxic messaging.”
Washington DC-born Tate was banned from Twitter in 2017 for violating its terms of service with his controversial comments.
In August, Tate was banned from a range of other social media sites – only to then be reinstated on Twitter after the company was taken over by Elon Musk.
