A British tourist has been handed a 36,000 fine in just three and a half hours after he raced his rented 260,000 Lamborghini across Dubai.

The man drove the 560 per day Lamborghini Huracan in the early hours of July 31st at speeds of up to 240kmh (150mph) - he was caught by several speed cameras on the eight-lane Shiekh Zayed highway.

The Huracan's owner, Mohammad Ibrahim, received several text messages from the car's computer system alerting him that the vehicle was continually breaking the speed limit. Concerned, he texted the driver telling him to slow down.

When interviewed by The National newspaper, Mr. Ibrahim said, "I had warned him that there are cameras everywhere in Dubai and that he would be liable for the fines".

The next morning, he went to his local police station to voice his concerns. The police instructed him to remotely disable the car.

The man who rented the car, believed to be in his 20's, has had his passport seized and the vehicle is still parked outside his hotel, the five star Palm Jumeirah.

My Ibrahim added, "I spoke to him on Thursday and he said he would sort it out by Sunday, but I haven't heard from him since."

Apparently twelve separate fines were imposed for exceeding 200kmh - the limit is 80kph.
