3 Expensive Supercars seized On Yorkshire M1 Motorway

Don’t be a douche with your supercars

What can happen if you drive a nice car and act like a douche on the road?! Of course, police could seize your nice car. In this particular case three of them. Three supercars seized. And we are not only talking about nice cars such as Golf GTI, or some sort of BMW M car. No, no. Owners of Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren had a surprise of their lives in store when a tow truck appeared to take away their prized vehicles.

A police spokesman said:

“We had reports that the supercars were deliberately slowing traffic down to 30mph and then speeding off. On a motorway this is highly dangerous as you can imagine. CCTV from the motorway cameras confirmed this and this is the reason for the seized vehicles.”

These supercars are possibly the best cars one may buy today. Not only do they represent the pinnacle of technological development, but they are also the ultimate in speed, road behavior and their owners have an image to themselves. Of course, behaving like these three is the closest thing to being a douche ever. There is a place for these types of testing and it is called the track.

About Safet Satara

I do not have spare time. All there is is car time. 12 years and counting. I am a Central European gearhead, but you are probably thinking - aaa a disposable Borg drone! Well, actually, I like to dress up like James Bond too. The only thing I need to be him is an Aston Martin (and I love DBS more than DB5 because, reasons). That's something I guess.
