‘Glow-in-the-dark’ Lamborghini seized by London police

If you're 24 years old and a member of Qatar's ruling family, what car would you drive around town? A 'glow-in-the-dark' Lamborghini Aventador, worth around $500,000, of course. But if you forget your driver's license and the proper insurance documents while navigating the streets of London, don't for one minute think the local police might offer you a royal pardon. Instead, they'll give you a ticket. And tow your one-of-a-kind supercar like it's a rusted '94 Honda Accord.

This particularly insane Lamborghini, which is rumored to glow-in-the-dark according to its creator, is thought to be owned by Nasser Al-Thani, a mere 24 year old with Qatari parents so wealthy they presumably own such things as floating skyscrapers, fur coats made from wooly mammoths, and an entire mansion filled with nothing but jelly beans.

The incident reportedly began by police noticing the attention-grabbing supercar had no front license plate. After stopping the car and quizzing the driver, the space-aged Lamborghini was taken aboard a flatbed truck to the impound lot. I doubt Nasser Al-Thani struggled for a ride home, however. This car is one of many oddly painted, ludicrously expensive sports cars the young man owns. Or perhaps this time he took the chromed helicopter, returning to his house full of Haribo.
