A Lamborghini driver has more than just a ticket to worry about after police pulled them over for allegedly driving at more than 60km/h over the speed limit.

Police pulled over the Lamborghini Huracan in Brampton, in Toronto, Canada, last week.

It’s alleged the driver, a 28-year-old, was travelling at 123km/h in a 60 zone.

But police also noted the car is a rental and did not belong to the driver.

Adding to the driver’s agony: the Lamborghini was impounded for 14 days with the bill for renting it expected to cost the driver more than A$19,000 once it’s returned.

That bill could be pocket change for anyone who owns a Huracan though with some fetching more than $500,000.

It is not clear what charges the driver faces or what fines they have been issued.

On Twitter, people said it was “an expensive lesson to learn”.

“That is amazing,” one woman tweeted.

“If only the fines were as substantial, more people might be deterred.”

One man called it an “utterly fantastic catch”.

“People clearly and deliberately ignoring their responsibility to the society they live in, and to those around them, and endangering life and property on top of that has to stop,” he tweeted.

Another man suggested the rental company won't be pleased by the news either.

"Ouch! The rental company won’t be happy to see these pictures," he tweeted. 

"And, likely to ban this client from future business. Let’s hope the vehicle didn’t get scratched during the tow and in the impound."
