Uninsured Lamborghini Aventador could be crushed [video]

Far from being a smart idea

This Tron-inspired Lamborghini Aventador's days are numbered as it might end up in the crusher.

24-year-old Nasser Al-Thani from Qatar was pulled over by the London police on Wilton Place in Knightsbridge who discovered the car was being driven without insurance. At the moment, the purple/orange supercar (which allegedly "glows in the dark") simply sits outside New Scotland Yard until the police figures out what to do with the 380,000 USD Italian bull.

The driver was originally pulled over because of missing license plates. It would be an utterly stupid idea and a complete waste to destroy a perfectly good automobile, especially when we are talking about a supercar. If they really have to destroy it, at least the police should give the car to Top Gear UK as they'll take care of the Aventador and destroy it "gracefully".

That's a stupid law. I mean seriously, the guy drives a Lambo. It's not like he need insurance is it? I would crush him however, for what he has done to it because it looks awfull

this is the dumbest thing ive ever heard of , impounding the car fine... but to destroy someone's car for no insurance is ridiculous even if its breaking the law. impound it , have them pay a hefty fine and insure the car, then release it....money for the city - as opposed to using tax payers money to PAY to destroy and dispose of the car - guess logic dont make sense in england

as a Brit i have to say that a lot of the time we are fairly logical - but the major exception is traffic law. police here are far more concerned about giving tickets to otherwise relatively innocent motorists and raising revenue for the government than actually stopping dangerous and inconsiderate driving or motoring crime.

atleast these arent rare cars as you can get a new one any time, if it was a one off rare type of car where only a limited number of them are made, i'd be miffed.

They should raffle it off and use the proceeds for a good cause.

The current uk law is to crush the cars not insured and where no insurance documentation can be provided as proof....probably not expecting an aventador to be a car uninsured

They'd more likely sell it at a police auction, or (very unlikely) integrate it into their police fleet. The only cars the uk police crush are those that are only worth their weight in scrap!

Thanks for the incomplete story. Where is the connection with an uninsured driver and crushing a super car??? What law was broken to allow destroying this car....a little help please.
