- A video has surfaced online showing a motorist speeding away from a roadblock in his Lamborghini Urus
- The clip shows cops in awe as the Lambo owner put the pedal to the metal
- South Africans understood that the police officers were just human and they probably asked the motorist to show off what his car could do
Roadblocks are now part of our lives during the lockdown but it doesn't necessarily mean the situation has to be boring.
A motorist driving a luxury Lamborghini Urus was caught on video showing off how fast his car is in front of cops at a roadblock.
The video was shared on South Africa Live's Facebook page on Sunday and it quickly generated over 113 000 views.
The footage shows a motorist in a red Lambo SUV - which costs upwards from R3.5 million, depending on the year and model - flooring the gas to demonstrate just how fast the whip is.
South Africans shared their views in the comment section and many believed the police officers asked the man to speed away so that they could hear the car's magnificent sound.
Thulani Mabika commented:
"Cops are human beings too... probably they enjoyed the sound of the pipe too. If they (cops) asked him to hammer it in a safe manner kunani."
Lethabo Phaahla said:
"People like reading too much into things. His hazards are on, they probably did their job then found nothing and asked him to hammer it as he departs. Easy! They are people too! Like any of us, they enjoy these cars!"
Munyai Mike added:
"He's not running, he was just showing off. He's a well-known businessman, why would he run away mara?"
Mokgele Piet Motlohi wrote:
"You can hear officers were impressed with the car speed and the sound coming from behind."
