If you drive anti-socially, revving the engine, racing other vehicles at high speed, ESPECIALLY in front on an unmarked Police car then there is a high likelihood you’ll be walking home. #CO050 #fatal5 #speedkills pic.twitter.com/iSjGSxDc5O

Officers from Sussex Police said the driver was “foolish” to attempt to drive the orange McLaren 570s uninsured and whilst disqualified.

The luxury coupe, which has a top speed of 203mph, is valued at ?150,815 new.
