A luxury vehicle will be spending some time in the impound lot after its driver was caught for excessive speeding.
According to the Surrey RCMP, the vehicle, which looks to be a white Lamborghini, was clocked going at 135 km/h on Highway 17, which is an 80 km/h zone.
Photos shared on social media by the RCMP show the car pulled over on the side of the road, as well as behind a tow truck.
“Beautiful car for sure, but it looks decidedly less cool on the back of the tow truck en route to the impound lot,” says the Surrey RCMP.

Tickets for excessive speeding range from $368 to $483, according to ICBC. The infraction also carries three points towards a person’s Driver Risk Premium (DRP), which can lead to a costly annual fee when renewing insurance.
