Police in Queensland, Australia, are auctioning a $350,000 Lamborghini Huracan Performante seized from a 28-year-old driver who racked up dozens moving violations including speeding and a drunk driving charge.

The 2019 model has less than 700 miles on the odometer and was built to a custom specification that includes carbon fiber trim and purple paint.

Australia has extremely tough "anti-hoon" laws that allow authorities to permanently confiscate and sell the vehicles of repeat offenders with the proceeds returned to the state.

"Police will not tolerate reckless and dangerous behavior on our roads which put the lives of all other road users at risk," acting Assistant Commissioner Ray Rohweder told News.com.au.

"No matter how powerful your vehicle may be, the law will catch up to you and you will be held accountable for your foolish behavior."
