Flash McLaren driver loses £150k car after refusing to put number plates on

Cops have confiscated a super car worth £150,000 after its owner refused to put number plates on it.

The grey McLaren Spider was first pulled over on October 30 by Derbyshire police in Bakewell for missing a registration plate.

Upon closer inspection, officers from Bakewell, Hathersage and White Peak Villages SNT found the rear number plate was also non-compliant.

According to officers, the driver claimed "it fell off yesterday", but police noted they had previously been warned about it.

The driver was reported for no front number plate and a non-compliant rear number plate and sent on their way.

However, less than a week later, they were pulled over again.

Officers from Matlock, Cromford, Wirksworth and Darley Dale SNT pulled the vehicle over on the A6 in Darley Dale on Thursday night, November 5.

Officers were left unimpressed by the lack of action taken to fix the issues, which had been raised before, and seized the car.

In a post on Facebook, they wrote: "A6 Darley Dale. Recognise this car ? It recently featured on our page for number plate offences. Guess what? Still no number plate.
