The heavy footed policeman hit 101km/h (62mph) in a 48km/h zone (39 mph), according to an on-board tracking device.
The cop says he seized the Lamborghini after a search showed it appeared to be uninsured, Get West London reports.
However, Erwyn Mackee, who owns the luxury car rental company City Supercars, said new insurance had been taken out that day and the details had simply failed to show up on the police database.
The tracker recorded the car travelling at speeds of between 75km/h and 101km/h on the Northern Perimeter Road in Hounslow and West Drayton, where the limit is 48km/h, shortly after 1am on Thursday, June 2.
The police officer who drove the car was given three penalty points on his police driving record. A second officer was subject to management action.
And as for the Lamborghini owner, they are in the process of reimbursing the owner of the car the statutory £150 (US$200) removal fee.
