Police confiscate £170,000 McLaren after driver hits cyclist
Uninsured supercar taken into custody
Islington police seized a McLaren MP4 valued at a £170,000 on Thursday, November 14 after it was involved in a collision with a cyclist.
The cyclist, a 41-year-old man, was taken to a north London hospital with minor injuries.
The vehicle was seized by police as the driver, a 63-year-old man, did not have the appropriate insurance.
The incident happened just before midday in Old Srtreet at the junction with Mallow Street.
There were no arrests.
If the driver decides he doesn’t want his car back, it may be auctioned off.
Earlier this year, a Lamborghini Aventador valued at £300,000 was confiscated in Newham, east London after police found the driver had insufficient insurance.
The driver failed to come forward after police confiscated the car and it was sold for £218,000. The money was put into frontline policing.
