A REPORT reveals that 200 supercars worth around £20million were either impounded or clamped by DVLA last year in a crackdown on greedy millionaires who dodge road tax.

Owners prepared to pay huge fortunes for top of the range luxury motors were often too mean to stump up another £300-500 in tax.

 Supercars have predominantly been seized or towed away in London

A £180,000 Lamborghini Huracan was the most expensive car seized, according to documents seen by The Sun.

Rolls Royces, Ferraris, Aston Martins and Lamborghinis were also swooped upon and impounded until owners paid release and surety fees of £360 plus £21-a-day costs.

The posh motors were identified on public roads by enforcement vans fitted with number plate recognition cameras.

When the cameras spot an untaxed car, the clampers are immediately alerted. Clamped cars still untaxed after 24 hours are then towed.

A DVLA Spokeswoman said:“For those able to afford one of these prestige models, vehicle tax is a drop in the ocean compared to the price of the car.

“The overwhelming majority of motorists pay their tax. It’s right that we take action against those who don’t otherwise it wouldn’t be fair to those who do the right thing.”

 The DVLA have said that there is no excuse for owners of luxury cars to be skipping their vehicle tax

In total 118,000 drivers were clamped or towed last year with Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astras topping the league of shame.

One Tractor and three Reliant Robins were also seized.

 The costliest car to be seized was the Lamborghini Huracan which costs £180,000
