Police officers in Greater Manchester seized a gold and black Roll-Royce worth £200,000 after its flashy driver was discovered to have no insurance.
Police patrolling in an unmarked car spotted the luxury vehicle being driven erratically along the A666 road just after midnight on June 5, The Lancanshire Telegraph
Matthew Picton of the Greater Manchester Police said the officers stopped the car on St. Peter's Way after seeing it “tailgating and generally driving aggressively and flashing other vehicles to move out of the way,” the report added.
Picton said the unidentified driver did not notice the unmarked police vehicle trailing behind.
After the police pulled the vehicle over, they found out that the driver lacked insurance cover.
"When stopped, there was no insurance for the driver,” The Lancanshire Telegraph
quoted Picton as saying.
The officers confiscated the car at the roadside and will investigate why the driver was behind the wheel, according to the report.
This was the second confiscated luxury vehicle to be reported in a week. On June 1, police seized a £200,000 Lamborghini from a man they wrongly accused of having no insurance.
The vehicle’s owner, who showed proof of insurance cover, said the police officers took the car on a joy ride, driving it at twice speed limit.
