RDB LA fixed up a luxury McLaren 720S car, and just as the client took to the streets of Los Angeles, they were pulled over by police within seconds.

Driving a flashy vehicle can quickly get the attention of people on the street, but unfortunately, that also means you can catch the eye of the police.

This is exactly what happened just moments after RDB LA brought the McLaren out. In a February 6 video, the auto shop crew filmed the client pulling out of a parking lot, passing right by a police officer who was stopped at a traffic light.

The officer immediately pulled a U-turn and quickly caught up to pull the vehicle over, all in the course of about 10 seconds. The YouTube group got a kick out of this and even caught up to the driver to film the encounter.

At one point, a car slowed down during the traffic stop and shouted out the window about how great the Los Angeles car shop is.

RDB LA's Vik and Mano managed to talk the cop out of impounding the car by catching up on a scooter of all things, which brings some good news to the surprise encounter.

"It's a nice try, he tried taking the car," Mano explained. "Nice try. Next time, buddy."

It's a good thing the impounding didn't happen because Vik is a big fan of the McLaren 720S and would've surely been bummed to see it go, especially since it's for a client they just worked with. He even explained back in January that he would actually take the car over the more expensive Lamborghini Aventador.

Of course, it'd be hard to go wrong with either vehicle, but his reasoning came down to simple things like the 720S being a smoother ride and its top speed is a little bit faster.
