Ferrari 458 Wedding Car Seized By Police!

The driver of this Ferrari attracted the wrong kind of attention!

2y ago


The Metropolitan Police Roads and Transport team seized this Ferrari 458 Spider that was on route to a wedding. They posted a tweet showing the red, Italian supercar with the word 'Seized' digitally written across it.

The 458 Spider is powered by a 4.5L V8 engine, producing 562BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 199MPH. Police stated that the car was stopped for poor driving standards. It was then found that not only did the driver have no insurance to drive the Ferrari, but was also disqualified from driving!

This Ferrari is not the first car to be seized by police en-route to a wedding. Last month, we saw a Lamborghini be seized in West Yorkshire for the driver also having no insurance! There has been no update from the police on the fate of the Ferrari, we can only hope that the owner can afford to get the car back again.
