The acceleration works fine, but the potential sale of a pricey sports car has been slowed down by at least a week.

That’s how long a 2017 Audi R8 will be impounded after a test drive gone wrong on Highway 427 Wednesday morning.

Police say a 30-year-old man was taking the sleek red sports car for a test spin when he was clocked at 157 km/h in a 100 km/h zone.

A motorcycle cop pulled the car over near Eva Road with a sheepish salesperson in the passenger seat.

The driver was charged with stunt driving and had his licence suspended for seven days. That’s also how long the vehicle, valued at around $200,000, will be impounded.

“Should have taken it to the track,” police tweeted. “Now we are taking it to the pound.”
