Two Lamborghini supercars have been seized by the Metropolitan Police in London in the last week because their Arab drivers have failed to insure them.
The latest, a silver Lamborghini Aventador with a Dubai plate, worth nearly Dhs2million, is being held by the police after it was stopped outside luxury store Harrods in London's Brompton Road on August 14.
A police spokesman told 7DAYS that the driver will now have to pay a GBP200 fixed penalty fine and tow-away and storage fees for the supercar.
It will only be handed back to the driver when he turns up with valid insurance. Residents have been complaining that noisy Lamborghinis shipped from Gulf states are being revved loudly around the streets of Knightsbridge in the early hours.
The other supercar seizure was on August 8 in Basil Street SW1. It was also being driven with no insurance. The problem is so common that last month, a purple Lamborghini Aventador - with illuminated strips on the body inspired by the film Tron - was displayed outside Scotland Yard as a warning to drivers who don't carry their insurance documents with them.
