The teenager who was stabbed to death in a road rage attack in Spain by the driver of a UK-plated Mercedes has been pictured after police seized the car that was allegedly involved.
The vehicle was located in Estepona near the Costa del Sol resort of Marbella shortly before a tow truck arrived to take it away.
Detectives believe it was going to be put in a container and shipped out of the country.
The discovery brought police a step closer to arresting the man who stabbed a 19-year-old in the chest last Wednesday after the teenager reprimanded him for nearly running him over at a zebra crossing.
The knife attack occurred outside The Diana Centre in an area known as Diana Park between the Costa del Sol resorts of Marbella and Estepona.
The victim, a cinema worker identified only as Ulrich, was pronounced dead at the scene after being stabbed around 2.30pm last Wednesday.

He is understood to have been heading back from a local supermarket to the home he shared with his parents and two siblings when he was attacked.
Local reports said one of the people who went to his aid was his mum.
The youngster’s great aunt Herminia Martinez took to Facebook over the weekend to say: ‘At times we feel as if God has abandoned us and we ask why the Lord took you or you want to have that person who hurt your son or your daughter in front of you to ask them why they did what they did and committed such cruelty.

‘I imagine that when that happens we also want to die with our son or daughter, because the pain must be so great that we don’t think about anything else. You can’t believe what’s happening. We think it’s a nightmare.
‘A mad man, a stupid man snatched your life away from you and you are in another dimension with your great-grandparents who loved you so much. Rest in peace.’
Locals have launched a campaign to help Ulrich’s family with funeral costs and put collection pots in shops near the home he shared with his parents and two brothers.
A poster circulating on social media with a photo of the teenager says: ‘Last Wednesday 19-year-old Ulrich was stabbed to death near his home after recriminating the driver of a car who nearly ran him over on a zebra crossing.
‘We ask for your help, even if it’s just a euro.’
Police confirmed shortly after the stabbing they were hunting a right-hand drive white Mercedes with a UK number plate. The car seized is a Mercedes C-class.
Witnesses told detectives the driver was a ‘well-built blonde’ man thought to have been with a woman passenger.
