A Lamborghini driver was left red-faced after his allegedly uninsured £180,000 car was seized outside a police station.
And towing away the luxury motor must have been sweet revenge for officers after the driver had given cops a ‘cheeky wink and the gun’ over the weekend.
Cambridgeshire Police say the saw a Huracan model without a license plate near to the station in Parkside, Cambridge, on Monday.
When they ran a check they say they found the vehicle was uninsured. Officers snapped the supercar being towed away on a recovery truck. The roads policing unit then Tweeted the pic, adding: “Even Lamborghinis need insurance.”
The local British Transport Police team then Tweeted: “How ironic, this same LamborGreeni gave us a cheeky “wink & the gun” near Cambridge Station on Saturday evening!”
Other Twitter users were also celebrating the driver’s downfall. One, @skydude1, added: “Can I watch you crush it?” While @king_kieran asked: “If I insure it, can I keep it?”
The driver of the Lamborghini, which was a hire car, has been reported for summons by police – as has the hire company.
The supercar will be kept for 14 days – if the appropriate insurance documents are not provided in that time, it will sold by police.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “A Lamborghini Huracan was seized on the evening of the August 9 for not having the correct insurance.
“It was stopped for not displaying a front number plate, but it was then revealed it was not insured to be driven by the driver on this date.
“The driver has been reported for summons for no insurance and driving without a front number plate, as has the company he rented it from in Luton, for permitting the no insurance, and the owner of the car for permitting the no insurance.”
