    And I thought it was annoying to get the late charges for using toll roads in a rented car.

    I'm almost certain they wouldn't confuse @Digger for a Brit.

    i posted over on mlp as well, but i'm not following how the tourist
    can't be held liable. the way the article reads, as long as he is
    okay with losing his passport, there is really no other consequence,
    all while the owners of the huracan loses a car ? doesn't seem like
    the owners want to eff with it, either.

    If the dealership notifies the embassy that they are holding his passport until he pays the fine, then the embassy may not issue a replacement because it's not really lost. Then he's screwed. I don't know about rental agreements for a Lamborghini, but I imagine that there was either a sizeable deposit or a credit card to cover incidental expenses.
