Lamborghini Gets Ticketed as L.A. Police Put an End to the Fun

By -

Cars doing donuts until the tires fall apart leads to heavy police involvement and a ticket for the Lamborghini.

Although California has the toughest laws on performance cars in the United States, the car culture in the Los Angeles area is famous for their crazy high-performance hijinks. This video from Daily Driven Exotics takes us to one of those L.A. “underground” car meets in a Lamborghini Huracan. Though, the Lambo is the least attention-drawing thing happening here, at least, initially. The crowds of people and clouds of smoke draw lots of police attention, ultimately leading to an end of the fun and a ticket for the owner of the Italian supercar.

Picking up the Huracan

This video begins with the Canadian host stopping to visit his buddy in Los Angeles, who lends him a Lamborghini Huracan roadster to take cruising for the night. The owner pickups up the video host in a Rolls Royce and takes him to a garage where they transfer their luggage from the roomy Rolls to the cramped Lambo. However, once the under-bonnet area is filled and the passenger is holding what won’t fit in the frunk – the Canadian host is off to find a famous LA underground car meet.

Off to the Meet

After borrowing a Lamborghini, the host and his co-pilot head off to find the underground car meet. It isn’t long before they happen upon a crowd of hundreds lining the roadsides as various vehicles do burnouts and donuts. A Mustang and Camaro share the spotlight for a bit, doing donuts inside of the huge crowd. Following that is a Scion FR-S getting uncomfortably close to the crowd while killing the tires.

We also get to see a BMW M2 and a short bed, short car GMC Sierra flexing their muscles, but roughly halfway through the clip, the police crash the party.

The host of the video and his co-pilot run to the Lamborghini, which appears to be parked, running and waiting for them. That seems a little odd, but perhaps it is just the magic of YouTube celebrities. In any case, the driver literally jumps into the Huracan and takes off, but it is too late, and they are pulled over by a few of LA’s Finest.

Getting a Ticket in the Lambo

We don’t find out what the video host did to get pulled over in the Huracan, but he does get stopped by the LAPD. While pulled over, he gets a crash course on American vehicle registration and proof of insurance with the help of the friendly officer.

He is written a citation for something with the vehicle, so we have to wonder if this car didn’t lack some of the appropriate documentation on a performance upgrade, but the video hosts suggest that the ticket falls on the car’s owner leading us to believe that it wasn’t something like a speeding ticket.

In the end, the Canadian host and his friend are given a ticket and sent off to enjoy the rest of their night – presumably learning the downfall of the infamous L.A. underground car meet.

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Rall. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car: a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16. Meanwhile, I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group,” adds Rall. “While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit, I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.”
