The owner of the rental agency is said to be refusing to claim the vehicle back because he would have to pay the £36,000 in fines.

Under Dubai law it is the owner of the vehicle who is penalised for speeding rather than the driver.

He said: 'I have spent the day in court and have started civil proceedings to recover the money that is owed by the speeding.

'It is our car, but we are not responsible for the fines that have accumulated. We have tried talking with Mr Hashi but he has not responded.

The matter is now with the courts. I do not understand why he would do this.'

Mr Iqbal said by starting court proceedings it is unlikely Hashi will be allowed to leave Dubai until the fine is paid.

Hashi could also face a prison sentence if the court finds in favour of the rental car agency and he is unable to pay the money owed.

Hashi was due to leave Dubai today but without his passport will be marooned in the city.

'I still have his passport so he will not be leaving,' he added.

Pictured: Briton , 26 , stranded in Dubai after he was caught speeding 33 times in four hours in Dubai , hitting 140 mph in a rented Lamborghini as his family calls £ 36 , 000 fine 'ridiculous'.

A BRITON clocked up £ 35, 000 in fines in three hours as he drove at up to 150 mph in Dubai . The 25-year-old was snapped by roadside cameras as he broke the limit 33 times in a £ 270, 000 Lamborghini Huracan.

Hashi is said to have triggered every speed camera on the Sheikh Hashid road reaching a top speed of about 143mph. Twelve of the fines were imposed for exceeding 124mph and were seconds apart.

Going over Dubai's 80km/h (50mph) limit results in a 3,000 dirham (£600) fine.

Iqbal said the Lamborghini's on board computer alerted him to the excessive speed and he sent a text message to Hashi warning him about the cameras.

He said they were ignored and Hashi continued to speed along the road triggering roadside cameras that took a photo of the number plate.

'I'd warned him that there are cameras everywhere in Dubai and that he'd be liable for the fines', he said.

Iqbal went to his local police station when he realised how many cameras had been triggered.

He knew as owner of the car he would be liable to pay the fines and attempted to have police block Hashi from leaving the country.

Iqbal said he was unable to get an order banning the British tourist from leaving and feared he might go to the British Embassy to get a new passport.

By beginning legal action Hashi will not be allowed to leave even if the passport is returned and the sports car retrieved from outside the hotel.

Hashi was unavailable for comment.
