He is still on his P2 Plates and by law cannot drive a car of that power. You usually need a really good reason to be able to drive in these cases (only car of parents etc) and then only for a legit reason. They know the car and will pull him over and ask what he is doing.

High-powered (performance) vehicles include those with:

eight or more cylinders
a turbocharged or supercharged engine that is not diesel powered
an engine that has a power output of more than 210kW as per the manufacturer's specifications
a rotary engine that has an engine capacity of more than 1146cc as per the manufacturer's specifications
a modified engine that must be approved under section 13 of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management Vehicle Standards and Safety) Regulation 2010.

Exemptions

Personal circumstances and severe hardship
You may apply for a certificate of exemption if you meet the
following three criteria, as outlined in A, B and C.
A. You need to drive a high-powered vehicle, in at least one
of the following:
- to or from your place of employment
- in the course of your employment
- to or from an educational institution that you attend
- to get medical treatment for yourself or a member of
your immediate family.
OR
The only car reasonably available for you to drive is a
high-powered vehicle where one of the following applies:
- owned by you on 30 June 2007 and still owned by
you
- owned or leased by an immediate family member
- in the possession of an immediate family member
provided under an employment or salary package.
AND
B. No other transport is reasonably available to you or your
immediate family member.
AND
C. Refusal to grant an exemption would cause severe
hardship to you or an immediate family member because
you have taken on a role of special responsibility in
relation to your family.

Does Australia really think a 400hp N/A V8 is too dangerous for the street

I bet if it was silver they wouldn't be harassing him. Color on cars really catches the eyes of cops. My color isnt anywhere as cool as that orange and its a slow 330ci but it still manages to catch the attention of cops even when im among hundreds of cars sitting in traffic. I always see them stare but nothing they can do. Im always driving the speed limit...no tints in the front (anymore)..and always wear my seat belts.

Only a few Australians have a convict heritage, try to understand that the majority don't. By the way, having travelled your country and being mugged within two hours of touching down in LA i feel you've a little kitchen cleaning of your own to do. For the most part i loved the U.S but it is the only country in all my travels that an incident like this happened.

Our cops don't have real criminals to go after. With gun laws the way they are and the amount of cops we have it's no surpise that most of our police force are traffic cops.

Having said that though it would be cool to have Steven segal as a law man though
