Driven by 20-year-old drivers, each of the cars were reported by witnesses to have exceeded 200km/h. Authorities were alerted when police received several complaints from people about high-end cars racing along Highway 99.

Witnesses also reported that the cars would slow down and wait for others before accelerating away again side-by-side.

The list of cars reads like the local Trivett showroom:

  • 2007 Ferrari 599
  • 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo
  • 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo
  • 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo
  • 2009 Audi R8
  • 2012 Nissan GT-R
  • 2010 Nissan GT-R
  • 2010 Nissan GT-R
  • 2010 Maserati Turismo
  • 2010 Maserati Turismo
  • 2011 Mercedes SL63
  • 2011 Mercedes SLS
  • 2005 Aston Martin DB9

The cars came off the highway around Surrey, where six of those 13 vehicles were stopped by local police. The other seven cars were located and stopped by police a short distance away.

"The majority of them had personalized plates as well and were souped-up," said RCMP Insp. Bryon Massie, "so they're fairly distinguished and the witnesses had no problem in providing us with the descriptors that were tracked back to the vehicles."

The owner of the Lamborghini, Massie said, is only 18 years old. He said it appears the group was celebrating one of their colleagues leaving the area.

The fine for each driver is, wait for it, CA$196, and they will have to pay for the impound and lot fees for one week.
