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 RCMP says officers pulled the car over in Richmond, B.C., because it didn't have a front licence plate.

When the officer found out the car also 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.

The traffic stop occurred Oct. 17, the RCMP said in a release Wednesday.
