Canadian Has McLaren 600LT Impounded Just 10 Minutes After Taking Delivery

A man in Vancouver has had his McLaren 600LT impounded just minutes after he took delivery of the British supercar.

Global News reports that the 39-year-old driver was spotted behind the wheel of the McLaren by a traffic patrol officer on Highway 1 near 15th Street earlier this month in West Vancouver. The British exotic was clocked going 161 km/h (100 mph) in a 90 km/h (55 mph) zone.

Authorities soon pulled over the man who revealed that he had only just left the dealership where he picked up the keys to the 600LT 10 minutes prior to being nabbed for speeding.

Police towed the McLaren from the scene and impounded it for seven days. The man was also issued with a $368 CAD ($280) ticket for speeding while his license was also hit with three driver penalty points.

“While we get closer to the July long weekend, which typically means more vehicles on the road, West Vancouver Police want to remind everyone to obey all speed limits and drive responsibly,” West Vancouver police constable Kevin Goodmurphy said in a statement regarding the incident. “Your life is worth it.”

It is reported that the man’s annual insurance premium will likely rise by about $384 CAD ($293) due to his excessive speeding. If the driver is nabbed excessively speeding a second time, the car could be impounded from 30 to 60 days with the owner also facing steep storage and towing fees.

The McLaren in question was painted grey with a number of carbon fiber options including a roof scoop from MSO.

    That why you should buy a hyper supercar unless you are in Germany with their unlimited highways speeds.

      That’s not a hypercar.

  • xDRAN0x

    wow that’s a cheap ticket and no many points

  • Mr. EP9

    Cops probably prevented him from crashing it if he’s driving like that.

    Does anybody really think that someone that just spent 310K on a car (probably paid cash) is going to be bothered that they had to pay 368CAD in fines and their insurance premium is going up by 384CAD. LOL. I’d be willing to put money on that this happens again next week.
