A Luton car hire firm has less than two weeks to reclaim a £180,000 supercar or it will be sold by the police.

Officers in Cambridge pulled over a Lamborghini Huracan on Sunday after noticing that it was missing its front number plate.

On further inspection it was found that the vehicle was not insured to be used by the driver on that date.

Both the driver and the Luton car hire firm, which Cambs Police has not named, have been reported for summons over the incident.

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman told the Luton News: “The car is seized and held for 14 days.

“In that time, if the driver/owner comes forward with the documents required then they can retrieve the car.

“If there is no response in this time or the correct documents are not produced, then the car is disposed of.

“For most cars of any value, they will be sold on (only vehicles of very low value will be scrapped).”

The spokesman added: “Where vehicles are worth more than £800 the proceeds of the sale come back to the police (under this figure and the storage company keeps it to cover costs).

“We keep those proceeds for a certain amount of time (believe this to be six months) and if the owner comes forward during this period they can claim the money.

“If they do not, then it is put back into policing.”

The two-seater Lamborghini Huracan has a top speed of 202mph and can go from 0-60mph in just 3.2 seconds.

In an Autocar review the model is said to be “fast, loud, sharp, extroverted and about as impactful as it’s possible for anything on four wheels to be.”
