A LUXURY Lamborghini has been impounded by Queensland Police after it was involved in several high-speed incidents on the Gold Coast.
It’s believed members of the public reached out to police after seeing the yellow Lambo travelling at speeds in excess on 70 km/h over the limit on three separate occasions between August 22 and August 28.
Following investigations, officers raided a Paradise Point complex on September 22 and seized the vehicle.

A 35-year-old Paradise Point man received an infringement notice for allegedly travelling 120kph in a 70kph zone on Marine Parade, Biggera Waters, around 10am on August 26. He was also issued a fine for using a mobile phone while driving.
A 33-year-old Paradise Point man was issued an infringement notice for allegedly travelling 124kph in a 50kph zone on August 28 on Thrush Avenue, Paradise Point.
As the speeds were more than 40kph over the speed limit, each driver will receive a six-month licence suspension.
As the lives lost on Queensland’s roads this year exceeds 200, officers are reminding motorists about driving behaviour with a luxury vehicle impounded on the Gold Coast recently over significant speeding offences. 🔗https://t.co/s8YkcmcBb6 pic.twitter.com/BePMW563OJ

Road Policing Investigations Unit Acting Sergeant Deb McDougall urged drivers to seriously consider the consequences their actions may have when they get behind the wheel.
“When you are driving a car you are in control of an object that has the potential to end lives in the blink of an eye.
“We’ve seen a significant increase in road fatalities across the state already this year. There is no such thing as safe speeding – speeding kills.
“Police officers urge their fellow community members to follow the road rules. They are there for a reason, and that reason is to keep people safe.
“It cannot be overstated the potential devastating impact of driving behaviour such as what is alleged to have occurred.”
