Custom Officials Smash Man’s Lamborghini Supercar For Using Fake Plate Number (Photos)
A £270,000 Lamborghini supercar was smashed to pieces in public by Taiwanese officials because the owner had attached fake number plates. The custom Murciélago – though to be an LP 670–4 SuperVeloce – had been impounded because it was being driven on a public road without a valid registration number in 2013.
After three years of appeals, the government decided to demolish the luxury car in front of horrified onlookers.
The owner of the Lamborghini is reportedly a commercial pilot with the surname Lin, according to Focus Taiwan.
He was pulled over at a routine checkpoint and police officers found he had attached the licence plates belonging to a Ford Sedan which sells brand new for less than £18,000.
Mr Lin had appealed after his car was impounded under the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act when prosecutors believed him to have attempted to evade law enforcement.
