London Police sieze 'Glow-in-the-dark' Lamborghini

I have to admit hat this looks like one sweet car, especially at night when it goes TRON on the town. British Police have a pretty good stranglehold on their mostly ASBO population, and they don't discriminate when it comes to taking your personal property.

With cameras everywhere, and ANPR (automatic name plate recognition), which allow the police to scan license plates automatically, you won't be able to miss being caught if you let your insurance lapse...or in this case, simply not have the documents on you.

The Lamborghini Aventador is one of the world’s fastest super-cars. It is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine which gives a 0-62mph time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217mph.

The owner is believed to be Nasser Al-Thani, 24, of Qatar's ruling family.  So, he can afford the insurance, the fine and all the other costs that pile up.  Plus, he can afford the parking ticket that he got hours later, after he picked up his car.

This car was one of several seized under Operation Cubo, with more than 10,318 seized by the British Police since 2011.

Would love to take a spin, but for now I'll have to keep to reality with more reasonable cars, like a BMW 328xi or Audi A6.
