The owner of a Lamborghini, worth $275,000, is now looking at the next week without their high-end sports car.
Police clocked the driver of the car, who is not the owner, going 102 km / hr in a 50 km zone on Tuesday afternoon, and stopped it on Cambie Street near West 54th Avenue.

Constable Brian Montague, the VPD’s spokesman and the officer who ticketed the speeder, said the driver was “very shocked” to see the police when he was flagged down on Cambie Street near 54th Avenue.
The 30-year-old driver received a $368 speeding ticket and three demerit points on his licence. The vehicle, which had dealer licence plates, was impounded for seven days.
Police confirmed the vehicle is owned by a dealership, but would not identify the driver.
The vehicle is a 2015 Lamborghini Huracan which was just released a few weeks ago. One of its top-selling features is the company’s claim it can go from a dead stop to 100 kilometres an hour in 3.2 seconds.
