A luxury sports car worth tens of thousands of pounds was seized in Beckenham after a spot check found the driver had had his licence revoked.

Bromley police stopped an Audi R8 Quattro in Tannery Close, Elmers End, as officers continue to crackdown on illegal road users.

The vehicle, which would cost close to £100,000 new, is one of 430 taken off the road since January.

It'll be sold if the owner doesn't reclaim it and pay the fees.

Wonder why his licence was "revoked"? Does that mean he was disqualified?

In addition to the car being seized is he being prosecuted for driving without a licence?

Typical NS only giving half the facts

What's wrong with Audis ? I've never had one, but had a Leon Cupra Mk1 which was on the same Golf Mk4 platform and had the dash from a Mk1 Audi A3. All nice cars, well-made. Just a bit dull to drive. All are made from pick-n-mix VW bits anyway....

And when I see young guys driving £100k cars like that that R8 around... and you see plenty... you think how do they afford it and get insurance and do they even have a licence? Answers on a postcard.....
