Tourist racks up $46k in speeding tickets in 2 hours while driving Lambo

One tourist's joyride has come at a high price. 

Farah Hashi of England was on vacation in Dubai last week when he rented a Lamborghini Huracán.  If you're not familiar with the sports car, it features a V-10 engine that can produce 600 horsepower and do zero to 60 MPH in 2.5 seconds.  Its speed tops out at about 212 MPH, and its cost starts at $200,000.

During the three hours Hashi took the car for a spin, he enjoyed every bit of the vehicle's performance -- racking up $46,000 in speeding tickets. He triggered every speed camera on the road and reached speeds of 150 mph, the BBC reports.

Hashi is now stuck in Dubai because he refuses to pay the fines and the rental company has seized his passport. 

Hashi's brother, Adman, thinks the rental company should be paying the fees.

"He didn't even pay to hire the car. One of his friends had sorted it out for him. He was caught doing 200 km/h but he didn't know the laws over there," Adman said.

Adman continued: "Now they say he must pay £40,000 it is ridiculous. There is no way he has that money. He is out of work at the minute and went to Dubai to visit friends."

The rental company also refuses to pay the fine, leaving both parties currently at a stalemate.
