While driving the auto in the early hours of Tuesday July 31, the tourist was caught speeding in the vehicle a total of 33 times on Sheikh Zayed Road between 2.30am and 6am.
A British tourist is set to return from a holiday in the United Arab Emirates with more than just an impressive tan after clocking up Dh175,000 (about AU$64,000) in speeding fines in a matter of hours in Dubai.
The unnamed man, 25, triggered every speed camera on one of the city's busiest highways - Sheikh Zayed Road - last Tuesday.
Dubai police officers told Gulf News the speed radars capture the license plate of the cars, not the individuals driving them.
While the speeding fines reached Dhs70,000 for 12 violations caught by radar, an additional Dhs105,000 was imposed to cover the cost of recovering the auto after it was impounded following the incident. We shouldn't do so for sure.
The dealership owners said they received notification of the offences from 2:31 a.m.to 6:26 a.m. on July 31. At time of writing, it's understood the driver and his 602bhp Italian supercar are still at his hotel, and Mr Ibrahim is still holding the tourist's passport.
And therein lies the standoff: they haven't claimed the vehicle back yet, because they, as registered owners, might be liable to pay the speeding tickets.
Speaking to BBC, Faris Mohammed Iqbal, a partner at the dealership has said that though the auto is still parked at the tourist's hotel, they won't be able to retrieve it once it is officially impounded due to the high fines.
The auto is reportedly still parked at the Five Palm Jumeirah Hotel and Resort, where the British man seems to be staying.
This means the British man could be free to leave the country, provided he has a passport to do so. I won't be trying to take it back, because once I do, I know I have to surrender it to police. "It's his fault and he should pay that amount", he said.
"Then who pays the money for the impound?"
Iqbal said: "But even if he did not, I can't keep his passport with me for long".
