With over 20 miles of electric cruising range, Porsche’s 918 Spyder has the ability to sneak up on you. But if you wrap it in a green and black livery, don’t expect to fly under the radar in any urban setting. JWT Supercars is an English YouTube page devoted to catching exotics in action, and they spotted a bright green 918 under inspection from London’s finest. We have no idea why a Kuwait license plate would rouse the suspicions of the constables, but perhaps the microscopic front plate is against city rules.
For all of our fans who live in states that require a front-facing license plate, you can empathize with this owner. Parking against the flow of traffic, the presumptive owner is overheard discussing his options with Metro Police Constables. London has a congestion tax for drivers who enter the city, and it is based on automatic plate recognition. The foreign plate is probably not in their system, which flags every car who is not in the system. It costs £11.50 daily to enter the city during weekdays, and the tax helps provide maintenance to the ancient roads. It seems like a relative bargain compared to the NJ Turnpike or Florida’s SunPass network, but the UK subsidizes their roads through other means. If you own a 918 Spyder you probably have the means to pay any fine, but if you haven’t added one to your collection please take a look at the listings from our dealers below.
