A rare Lamborghini supercar has been seized after being illegal driven by a learner driver.
The £157,000 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder was seen speeding by local authorities in Richmond. An insurance check found that the driver held a provisional license only.
As the insurance on the vehicle only covered full driving licenses the rare vehicle was taken in by Richmond’s Safer Transport Team.
There are only 5 units of the sports car in the UK, with only 50 originally leaving the factory.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “The driver of the high performance sports car will be appearing in court for the driving offences and potentially receiving a driving ban, penalty points and a large fine as a result of his actions.”
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a recall of the Gallardo in September last year after a potential fire risk was discovered.
In October an American teenager died after a crash caused the car to catch fire.
