On the way back to Norway after buying a Lamborghini Huracan in Germany, the car buyer and a little cozy experience as before arrival got the ferry berth in Hirtshals.
The brand new supercar owner probably did not get to see what powers the car has to offer – and it’s not a trifle!
Huracan does not take many seconds to reach 236 km / h. Then, of course, it does not fit well that the police are in place and measuring the speed.
In Denmark, it has now become the case that the police can confiscate the car in connection with rough driving. And they did in this case, writes Nordjyske.
The Iraqi who lives in Norway thus did not manage to own the car for one day, once. According to Nordjyske, the donation cost around NOK 2.6 million.
That money may now be lost.
Jess Falberg, chief of security at North Jutland Police, says Nordjyske that the car was taken into control just 20 kilometers from Hirtshals, which can continue on to Norway.
The case will reach the court in Hjørring. But Falberg does not think there will be any problems with the confiscation.
One thing you should not do after rubbing your hands …
It was sent as on March 31 this year, that the new law was introduced which opens up for the police to seize vehicles in connection with rough driving.
Since then, a number of vehicles have been seized. If the police prevail in court, the cars can be sold. The proceeds from the sale go to the state.
There are basically three criteria for the car to be confiscated:
- If you drive over 200 km / h, no matter how high the speed limit is. Maximum speed limit in Denmark is 130 km / h.
- If you drive over twice as fast as the speed limit and the speed is over 100 km / h. In other words, you do not lose the car at 80 km / h in a 40-zone, but it smokes at 120 km / h in a 60-zone.
- If you have more than 2.0 per thousand. Denmark has a blood alcohol limit of 0.5, higher than the Norwegian of 0.2.
- In addition, separate rules apply if rough driving leads to some being killed or injured.

Think it’s unreasonable
The scheme also applies if some have locked away cars – and, as cases we mention above – cars that are not registered in Denmark. This has been a number of examples, already.
But there are critical voices for the scheme. Among other things, the leasing companies believe that it is unreasonable for them to be charged in connection with rough driving.
From what we experience, there are no plans to introduce a similar system with seizures and sales of cars here in Norway.

Maybe it was not so nice the police got more tips …
