Today on Drive Wire, The Drive has an update on a story we covered earlier this summer of this year about London police impounding a Lamborghini and purportedly taking it for a joyride. After police confiscated a white Lamborghini Huracan belonging to a rental car agency called City Supercars outside Heathrow Airport on June 2 for allegedly having a problem with its insurance, the car's owner claimed the cops took it for a spin, going as fast as 60 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone. But now, London's Metropolitan Police have announced that the two officers involved in the wrongful confiscation of the supercar are facing the consequences of their actions.
