Mounties say 13 young drivers, all under the age of 21, were caught zooming through Metro Vancouver in luxury cars Wednesday at speeds of up to 200 kilometres per hour.

The cars – which included Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Mercedes, Aston Martins and Audis – were reported speeding southbound on Highway 99 from the Massey Tunnel at around 3:30 p.m.

"These drivers seemed to be looking for attention," Cpl. Holly Marks said in a statement. "Well, they definitely got the attention of police."

Officers were able to stop six of the vehicles in Surrey, while the other seven were located and stopped a short distance away in White Rock. All 13 vehicles were seized.

Few of the drivers possess a full Class 5 license, police say, and one of the vehicles had less than 200 kilometres on the odometer.

Each driver is being charged with driving without due consideration and will receive a $196 ticket. They will also have to pay towing and storage charges.

The cars, estimated to be worth more than $2-million collectively, will be impounded for seven days.

Solicitor General Shirley Bond called the incident an "example of extremely dangerous, reckless and high risk behaviour."

Two luxury vehicles were impounded last November after allegedly being driven 200 kilometres per hour on North Vancouver's Mount Seymour Parkway. The cars were eventually seized by B.C.'s Civil Forfeiture Office.

The Ferrari Scuderia and BMW M6 had a combined value of $310,000, representing the largest forfeiture in the province's history at the time. The office's mandate is to deter illegal activity by appropriating cash and assets associated with it.

The Ministry of Public Safety says that police can make a recommendation on whether the province should confiscate the vehicles through a civil forfeiture. Mounties released a list of the vehicles involved on Thursday afternoon, including:

  • 2007 Ferrari 599
  • 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo
  • 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo
  • 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo

  • 2010 Maserati Turismo
