$550,000 'Glow In The Dark' TRON Lamborghini Seized By Police For Being Uninsured/Driven Without A License

This is the ~$550,000 (including mods) Lamborghini Aventador that was seized by police outside of Harrod's in London after the car's owner failed to produce a driver's license or proof of insurance. You know, because when you're rich as shit you don't care about living the rules. Me? I'm poor and terrified of drawing any police attention.

It is understood its owner is 24-year-old Nasser Al-Thani, a member of Qatar's ruling family.


Wealthy Middle-Eastern drivers descend on the capital in their supercars every summer and have even been the subject of a Channel 4 documentary, Millionaire Boy Racers, which showed angry residents saying their driving style was ruining the area for locals.

The Al-Thani family are renowned for their wacky supercars and hit the headlines three years ago when their blue Lamborghini and Koenigseggs were clamped outside Harrods.

You know, sometimes I wish I was born some rich, privileged member of a ruling family. But noooooo, I was raised by bears in the woods. We didn't have anything but a cave and a little creek, and the creek just turned out to be runoff from a highway. My sister died from drinking radiator fluid. Just kidding, she's still alive but if I keep adding it to her breakfast cereal it's bound to catch up with her one day.

Hit the jump for several more shots of the seizure.

Thanks to HH and Lemontree, who are both firm believers in following the rules. Except at board games. Board games are a free-for-all.

    Who needs insurance when you're rich as $#!+? You just pocket the cost... any cost. But you DO need a driver's license, That's serious business, sir!

    I don't get rich people. You become rich to buy awesome expensive items. Then you pay loads of extra money to turn the awesome item into a shiny turd on wheels.

    That's a pretty cool banner to label cars as uninsured seized cars.

  • And this will be in impound for the afternoon before someone calls the Home Office and says, "Do I even have to tell you what happens next?" CAR FREED.

  • Noooo, that thing is getting crushed!

  • sadoul1
