A Danish police confiscated a high-performance luxury sports car after its new owner was caught speeding while driving home from Germany to Norway.
According to a Danish newspaper quoted by the Associated Press, the man was an Iraqi citizen, residing in Norway, who was not identified, but who was driving his Lamborghini Huracan at 236 km/h on a highway where the maximum speed was 130 km/h.
Under a new Danish law, police can seize the vehicles of reckless drivers and auction them off, the money later going to the country’s coffers.
The man had bought the car a few hours earlier in Germany for 2 million Danish Kroner (260,000 euros) and, according to security forces, was “a little irritated” when the car was apprehended.
In addition to the arrest, he will also be fined for speeding.
