RICHMOND, B.C. - You might think someone driving a luxury car worth more than $400,000 would consider $500 chump change, but that wasn't the case for a 22-year-old West Vancouver man who was caught driving a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador without insurance.

The Mounties say they pulled the car over in Richmond, B.C., because it didn't have a front license plate.

When the officer found out the car wasn't insured he gave the driver a $568 fine.

Police say that's when the driver complained the fine was too much money.

The website wheels.ca says Canadian prices for a Lamborghini Aventador start at $430,000 and the car can go from zero to 100 kilometres an hour in under three seconds.

In this case, the Lamborghini was towed away.
