A large Volvo estate with a fake registration plate EX18EXE, which was found abandoned in Cowper Road, Stoke Newington on June 6, the morning after Samson was shot.
Det Ch Inspector Paul Considine, from the Met’s murder squad, said: “Although we have made arrests, the Volvo remains a very important appeal point for us.
“When it was discovered by police, it was bearing a false registration plate and therefore, in the days and weeks beforehand, may have been displaying different plates.
“The car is a large estate vehicle and had some distinguishing features – there were scuff marks to both corners of the front bumper and the front passenger door mirror was held on with tape.
“I am very keen to hear from anyone who thinks they have seen this Volvo or knows who drives it.”
He added: “This is a tragic incident that has resulted in the loss of a young man’s life, and robbed a family of their future together, leaving them devastated. If you can help us find those responsible, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
