Drive without insurance and the police can seize your car – but no one told the seemingly wealthy owner of a gold Maserati, confiscated off London’s streets earlier today.
The learner driver of the £100,000 Maserati GranCabrio has been spotted in the capital a number of times this year – with many taking to social media to question whether the exotic motor was a suitable first car.

Police stopped the Maserati in Kingston this morning and discovered the driver wasn’t adequately insured – so seized the Italian supercar.
The driver, who hasn’t been named, will be hit with a £150 towing charge, along with a £25 storage fee for every day it remains in police possession.

If the case goes to court, they could also face an unlimited fan and a driving ban – before they’ve even got their licence.
The Maserati has previously been spotted being given a parking fine on Edgware Road.
Earlier this year, a trio of gold-wrapped supercars including a Lamborghini Aventador and Bentley Flying Spur were hit with £80 fines while parked in Knightsbridge.
The cars were thought to be owned by Saudi Arabian visitors to London.
