Mario Balotelli’s Maserati GranTurismo Confiscated by Police

Mario Balotelli, the famous Manchester City player, experienced what cartoon character Dexter would call “a bad day for science” on December 6, when he decided to take his brand new Maserati GranTurismo for a full-throttle spin.

One day after he acquired the car, the footballer put it through its paces on the M60 near Worsley, Salford. However, he didn’t get to enjoy the Italian V8 for too long, as he was pulled over by the police, being suspected of speeding, as The Sun writes.

To his surprise, officers confiscated the striker’s car, explaining that the vehicle might not be legally registered. Aiming to settle the issue, Balotelli offered the officers the papers of the car, thus proving to them that the vehicle was eligible for public road driving.
