Farah Hashi, a tourist from the United Kingdom, has to pay 170,000 dirhams (over $46,000) in 33 separate speeding penalties.
Mr. Hashi reportedly left his passport with the company as a guarantee after he rented the vehicle. Although he was meant to leave the country on Wednesday, the Brit from Newport, south Wales may have to extend his stay to deal with the situation.
Mr. Hashi initially paid 6,000 dirhams (around $1,600) to hire the sports car, worth over $353,000. As he was driving the yellow Lamborghini around the city, including the Sheikh Zayed Road, Mr. Hashi managed to speed between 126kph (78mph) and 230kph (143mph). The incident occurred between 2:31 a.m. and 6:26 a.m.
Owners of the company, Saeed Ali Rent a Car, that rented out the luxury supercar, fear they may be forced to pay the penalties, rather than the driver.
Saeed Ali Rent a Car also rents out other sports and luxury cars, including a Ferrari 458 Spider ($816), Audi R8 Spyder ($680), Audi A5 Convertible ($163).
