The 25-year old British tourist rented the Dhs1.3 million supercar on Tuesday July 30 from Rent A auto. However, he might be looking at an extended stay in Dubai, though not necessarily for pleasure, this time.

The dealership that rented the Lamborghini revealed that the tourist left his passport as a guarantee for the auto, but they're refusing to reclaim the vehicle for fear of being liable to pay the fines.

A rep confirms for the publication that they're also aware the Lambo is now gathering dust outside the tourist's hotel, but they're refusing to go and collect it. We have tried talking with Mr Hashi but he has not responded. The matter is now with the courts.

Farah Hashi, 25, from Newport, can not afford the fines, his brother said.

For now it's unclear what the outcome will be but Hashi was due to end his Dubai vacation on Wednesday.


'I still have his passport so he will not be leaving, ' he added.

Iqbal said he had never had a client run up such a large amount in speeding fines from hiring one of his luxury sports cars.

The tourist triggered every single speed camera on the 347-mile Sheikh Zayed Road - the longest road in the United Arab Emirates. Twelve of the fines were imposed for exceeding 124mph and were seconds apart.

Iqbal said the Lamborghini's on board computer alerted him to the excessive speed and he sent a text message to Hashi warning him about the cameras.

Adman Hashi, said: "They came to his hotel and demanded he hand it over after the speeding ticket came through and out of fear he gave it to them". As of this moment, the leasing company filed papers to get a travel ban in the tourist's name. He handed in his passport as security when renting the auto, but has yet to return the vehicle to get it back.
