Do you know when you get up with your left foot? Or when your day is ruled by the adage: “being in the wrong place at the wrong time”? Well, this happened to an Iraqi driver who lives in Norway, but was caught by Danish law. Despite the mix of countries, the story is simple: Mercy for abusing speed in a Lamborghini.
The fact that the driver in question – whose name was not disclosed – went to Germany to buy a Lamborghini storm. After paying the equivalent of US$400,000 ($2.2 million in direct conversion), the buyer decided to return home and, along the way, wanted to play with the new treat. He took a deep step. It reached 236 km/h. But it happened on runways in Denmark, where there is a recent law that strictly prohibits the practice.

There, whoever is caught at a speed exceeding the permitted (130 km/h) constitutes a driving violation under “crazy” driving. The punishment is recent and in this sense, it not only fines the driver, but also confiscates the car of the offender.
And that is, in essence, what happened to the person in question. Stopped by the local police, the man confiscated his car a few hours after the purchase.
However, the matter does not end here. If the seizure is legalized in court – it is still on trial – the confiscated Huracan will be auctioned off. The money, in essence, goes to the Danish public treasury. It should be noted that, there, violating is tantamount to insulting the police. Therefore, unlike Brazil, the country has an effective investigation and is independent of the purchasing power of the accused.
640 hp V10
Despite the outcome, nothing was said about which version of the Huracan starred in the scene in question. However, it should be noted that the model always comes with the powerful 5.2 V10 engine.
Through the set, it develops up to 640 hp of power and 61.2 mkgf of torque. Whether in EVO or STO versions (revealed late last year, photo above), the super sporty It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. It travels at a maximum speed of 325 km/h. Did the Iraqi driver want to reach that limit?
