London Police Seizes Allegedly Uninsured Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta

London’s PD doesn’t joke around when it comes to uninsured vehicles that are being driven on public roads, so they didn’t let the driver of this Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta get away with it.

According to DailyMail, the Italian supercar caught the officers’ attention when it blocked traffic just off Berkeley Square, in England’s capital city, earlier this month. The man behind the wheel was apparently trying to park behind a Porsche 918, which was being driven by his father.

Police officers pulled him over, and couldn’t find his name on the insurance, said an unlooker, and the information was confirmed by a Scotland Yard spokesperson, not long after. “On Sunday 4 February, Westminster Safer Transport Team seized a vehicle on Davies Street, W1, at approximately 14:51 hours, for having no insurance.”

A tow truck immediately arrived at the scene and carefully loaded the Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta, before driving off, to the amazement of some bystanders, who captured the action on video.

What exactly is going to happen to the expensive limited edition supercar is a good question, but the local police department could list it for auction. After all, they already did that to other exotics, confiscated over a similar paper issue.

As for the driver, he may want to check out the fixed-roof successor of his former ride: the new Ferrari 488 Pista. It debuted this week, and uses a tuned 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that makes 711hp and 770Nm (568lb-ft) of torque, claiming it can reach 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill in just 2.85sec, and a top speed in excess of 340km/h (211mph).
