Illustration for article titled MegaUpload Founder Claims He's 'Evil,' 'Guilty,' And 'God' On His License Plates

Sharing site MegaUpload was shut down by the feds earlier today and its founder Kim "Dotcom" Schmitz was arrested over allegations that his site hosted pirated media. Schmitz also had over $6 million in luxury cars seized. Cars with extremely conspicuous plates proclaiming him, among other things, a "God." Or "The" God.


Doctom lived an extravagant lifestyle with cars, planes, and helicopters.

He competed in the quasi-legal Gumball 3000 street race across Europe a few years ago in a modified Mercedes and has a penchant for driving around golf courses.

The list of his cars from the feds is below and details some amazing stuff, including two of the rare (only 180 built) Mercedes CLK DTM models. Pay special attention to the plates:

I've never heard of MegaUpload before all this recent drama which makes me wonder, how the hell does this guy make all his money from a sharing site? Or does he have his finger in more than one pie?
