Danish police have confiscated a high-performance luxury car after its new owner was caught speeding as he drove it home from Germany to Norway.

丹麥警方沒收了一輛高性能的豪華汽車,在它的新車主超速被逮以後,當時他開著它從德國回挪威家。

The man, an Iraqi citizen resident in Norway who was not identified, was registered Thursday as driving at 236 kph in his Lamborghini Huracán on a stretch of highway where the top speed is 130 kph.

這名男子是個居住於挪威的伊拉克公民,身分未明,週四在一段最高時速130公里的高速公路上,被紀錄到以每小時236公里速度駕著他的藍寶堅尼「颶風」。

Under a new Danish law, police can seize the vehicles of reckless drivers and auction them off, with the money going into Danish coffers.

根據丹麥一項新的法律,警察可沒收魯莽駕駛人的車輛並拍賣它們,錢則進丹麥國庫。

The Nordjyske newspaper said the man had bought the car hours earlier in Germany for 2 million kroner.

《北日德蘭報》說,這名男子幾個小時前在德國以200萬克朗購入這輛車。
