The owner of a £400,000 Lamborghini Aventador ended up ‘walking home in tears’ after the untaxed motor was seized by police.
Officers stopped the flash supercar as it was heading to a car meet in South Mimms, Hertfordshire, on Bank Holiday Monday.
Police said the driver had decided not to tax the sports vehicle because it was ‘too expensive’.
A Lamborghini Aventador can cost more than £400,000, reaching speeds of up to 218mph and producing around 690bhp.

Officers caught the motor being driven in ‘an anti-social manner’ on the A1 in the early hours of Monday morning.
Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire (BCH) Road Policing Unit said the Italian-made car was stopped because the driver had already been warned twice about causing ‘alarm, distress or annoyance to members of the public’.
A picture of the vehicle posted on social media by police showed the car’s two scissor doors pointing upwards.
A spokesman for the road policing unit said: ‘Vehicle was already subject to 2 x S59 warnings [likely to cause alarm, distress or annoyance to members of the public], but the driver decided to drive in an anti-social manner en route to a car meet.
‘Seized under S60 and it’s also untaxed as it’s too expensive…driver walking home in tears.’
