Sunday spin in Lamborghini ‘ends up in police pound’

The driver of a red Lamborghini convertible possibly didn’t bank on traffic police checking his vehicle’s details from the comfort of their patrol car last Sunday in Lisbon. But they did – and quickly discovered the flashy set of wheels was ‘illegal’ in this country, being on German plates, the validity of which for circulation here expired in May 2017. The driver was thus forced to abandon his ‘supercar’, now impounded.

Say reports, the fine for driving on foreign plates after the requisite six-months’ grace in Portugal ranges from €600-€3,000.

After that, the Lambourghini’s papers will need to be ‘regularised’ before it can be removed from the PSP pound.
