Not much info on this, but we know California cops have done this before...

I doubt it's true..... I would believe it more from a "Confirmed Source"...

How do we know it's not a Lexus USA "crush car" ??

Prototypes can only stay in the USA for three years before they are toast!!
The VINs can never be registered as a street legal car per DOT.

Plus, the headlights seem to be 08-10' .. Not a 2011... I'm just saying..

I hope it is true! It would serve the owner right for street racing!

Thats complete b@!!***** can they really do that? They should atlest give you 3 strikes. Im sure someoneworking at the impound lot stripped its wheels and brakes and put them on ebay. I wonder if they swiped the motor and tranny aswell. I would rather drive it off a cliff then let them crush it

Since it is California it does have the ring of truth. Why confiscate it, sell it and help make up for a huge deficit? Let's confiscte it and pay to have it destroyed. LOL

If it is true, then this is one more reason I will never move back to California. I have lived there before, and it is great in many aspects, but the laws there are so completely ludicrous that I can't even come up with a coherent insult that can be displayed in public. I agree that street racing is bad, but a car being crushed for street racing is about the equivalent severity as stoning a prostitute. We live in America, not Afghanistan or Pakistan. Now if there was true recklessness involved and lives were at stake, then fine...but I doubt it. I hope this is fake, because authorities overstepping their bounds makes me sooo angry (and BTW I side with the law 99% of the time).

It's a misunderstanding. The F crushed the dude he was racing.

Such a waste. The impound lot could auction off the the car and make money for the local/state government.
