$800,000 Lamborghini seized by police after driver's reckless move
It took WA police almost a month to track down the Lamborghini Aventadore and have it impounded.
A man has had his $800,000 Lamborghini Aventadore impounded by police after he was eventually tracked down for allegedly exceeding the speed limit by more than 50km/h earlier this year.
At about 12.55pm on Saturday, January 28, the 48-year-old was allegedly racing along a busy Perth highway at 155km/h in a 100km/h zone.
After the alleged speed was detected on Reid Highway, near the intersection of Malaga Drive, police started investigating the matter and, almost a month later, confronted the North Fremantle man.
Officers from the State Traffic Investigations team in Western Australia came across the Lamborghini Aventadore convertible, worth $825,000 last Friday.
After first seeing the car on Stirling Highway in Peppermint Grove, they then stopped him a short time later at Fairlight Street in Mosman Park.

In a bid to encourage road safety and decrease the amount of road deaths and injuries, the WA Road Safety Commission has launched the ‘No one plans a crash campaign’ this year.
In 2022, 175 people died on WA roads, with around 1,700 people being seriously injured each year, according to the campaign. In Australia there were a total of 109 road deaths in January.
