When police impounded a $500,000 Ferrari in Melbourne, just who did the driver call to give him a lift home?

His mate, who just so happened to have been nicked by police just hours earlierĀ for driving an unregistered $600,000 McLaren.

The two friends with the two very expensive cars were pulled over in quick succession on Wednesday night, police said.

"They are placing other road users at risk by being on the road when they shouldn't be," Prahran highway patrol Sergeant Helen Poke said.

Sgt Poke said the first driver, a 38-year-old from Coburg, was pulled over at 2.30pm on Toorak Road in the city's inner-east.

Police found the McLaren MP4-12C was unregistered and the driver was fined $738 with the car left on the side of the road.

Six hours later, at 8.30pm, his friend driving a 2011 Ferrari 458 was pulled over, also on Toorak Road.

Sgt Poke said the 33-year-old male driver from Toorak will be charged on summons for using an unregistered vehicle and driving while disqualified.

The car was impounded and his friend, this time driving a Chrysler 300, promptly came to pick him up to ensure he rode home in luxury.
