A $521,900 (QR1.9 million) Qatari-owned Lamborghini Aventador has recently been seized by police in London after its driver failed to produce alicence or correct insurance documents, the UK’s Daily Mail reports.
The newspaper claims that the car is owned by 24-year-old Nasser Al-Thani. The car has a Qatari license plate, and is decorated with a paint-job which the Daily Mail describes as “something out of the sci-fi film Tron.”
The newspaper has pictures of the car being loaded onto a police truck and driven away to the local pound, where the owner will be able to retrieve his car once he can present the correct documents and pay any fines due.
According to Hukoomi, the Lamborghini has one unpaid speeding ticket in Qatar, a QR500 fine that was recorded late last month near the Luqta/Rayyan area.
The newspaper says that the seizure of the car took place near Harrods in Knightsbridge, which has been owned by Qatar Holding since 2010.
‘Super car summer’
The car is one of many shipped over to London every summer by Khaleeji (Gulf) owners who spend their holiday in the city.
Last year, a British TV documentary sparked debate after it highlighted complaints about rich, young Khaleeji men turning London’s streets into their own personal playground in their imported supercars.
The film, “Millionaire Boy Racers,” provoked discussion about multiculturalism and tolerance.
