Police said the driver decided not to tax the yellow sports vehicle because it was "too expensive".

Officers caught the Lamborghini Aventador being driven in "an anti-social manner" on the A1 in the early hours of Monday morning.

Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire (BCH) Road Policing Unit said the Italian-made car was stopped because the driver had already been warned twice about causing "alarm, distress or annoyance to members of the public".

‘Driver walking home in tears’

A Lamborghini Aventador can cost more than £400,000, can reach speeds of up to 218mph and produces around 690bhp.

A picture of the seized vehicle posted on social media by police showed the car’s two scissor doors pointing upwards.

A spokesman for the BCH Road Policing Unit said: "Vehicle was already subject to 2 x S59 warnings [likely to cause alarm, distress or annoyance to members of the public], but the driver decided to drive in an anti-social manner en route to a car meet.

"Seized under S60 and it’s also untaxed as it’s too expensive... driver walking home in tears."
