Well, that’s just embarrassing. A local dealership took one of their new Lamborghini vehicles for a test drive last week only to have it impounded by Vancouver Police for excessive speeding. It is not confirmed which dealership the vehicle was from.
The brand new $270,000 Huracan LP 610-4 rocket was driving in a 50 km/h zone on Cambie Street south of 49th Avenue when it was pulled over by Vancouver Police.
According to a tweet by the police department that shames the road offence, the vehicle was traveling at 102 km/h – speeds that are definitely not designed for Vancouver’s local roads. With a 610 horsepower, the Huracan can reach speeds of 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h.

The driver was fined $368 and the vehicle was towed on a flat bed truck and impounded for a period of seven days.
There were two other high profile road incidents involving Lamborghinis in Vancouver this year. In June, a Lamborghini driver created traffic mayhem on Burrard Street when he collided with another driver at the intersection of Alberni Street. The following month, a Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix official was clipped by the side mirror of a Lamborghini pace car while she was trying to cross Water Street near the finish line during the race.
