A FERRARI driver has been branded an “idiot” after cops seized his supercar over lack of insurance.
German officials seized the Ferrari’s F8 Tributo, valued at more than £250,000, as it didn’t have any cover.
The vehicle was reportedly seized by cops after a routine check set of traffic lights.
According to Mettmann police, the anonymous 32-year-old driver hadn’t paid any of his monthly insurance payments since January 2022.
In a Facebook post, police confirmed that revoke the motorist’s registration and invalidated his license plates on the spot.
The humiliated driver was then forced to pay a tow truck to come and take his car back home.
Social media users were left in stiches by the drivers antics noting the irony that the owner could afford to buy the supercar, but couldn’t pay for his insurance.
One simply wrote: “What an idiot.”
The news comes amid a string of supercar speeding offences as German cops battle the deadly world of “speed tourism.”
