Impounded 10 min. off lot

West Vancouver police impounded a McLaren supercar just minutes after the new owner drove it off the lot.

Police spotted the 2019 McLaren 600LT travelling at “a high rate of speed” on Highway 1 shortly after 10 p.m. June 17.

The supercar’s speed was clocked at over 160 km/h in a 90 km/h zone, said police.

Officers stopped the vehicle near Cypress Bowl Road, where the driver informed them he had just left the dealership after buying the car 10 minutes earlier.

Police impounded the McLaren for seven days for excessive speeding and handed the driver, a 39-year-old man from Coquitlam, a $368 ticket.

Const. Kevin Goodmurphy of the West Vancouver Police said with summer now in full swing, owners of exotic rides may be more likely to take their supercars out for a spin. But traffic patrols aren’t taking a vacation.
