Police say they are investigating claims officers 'drove an impounded £200,000 Lamborghini at twice the legal limit'.

The information on the tracker is seen by the insurance company and can affect my insurance. It is going to be difficult to explain to them that it was the police who were speeding.

It is quite annoying, the police charged us £50 to take the car out of the pound when we finally gave them the insurance documents.

But I have a sense of humour about it, I cannot really blame them, it is a lovely car and they obviously enjoyed it.

– City Supercars’ managing director Erwyn Mackee

The firm claims the car was travelling at 63mph in a 30 mph zone.

Owners City Supercars, a London-based luxury car hire company, say the motor was pulled over yesterday as a delivery driver was taking it to a client at a hotel near Heathrow Airport.

The firm told ITV London that the speed was logged by it's online tracking system.
