The silver Mercedes saloon car was stopped by traffic officers on Aikenhead Road, in Glasgow.
Three parts of a black suite had been precariously strapped to the boot and roof of the motor.
The car was stopped on a Saturday afternoon earlier this month and a 49-year-old man was reported for his excessive load and other driving offences.
Posting the picture on Twitter, Road Policing Scotland stated: "Officers from #GlasgowRP stopped this vehicle due to its load.
"Driver reported for load and other offences and suitable advice given for the transport of couches in the future. #TheMoreYouLookTheWorseItGets #WeNeedTheManWithAVan"
The picture left users stunned, with some even questioning whether it was real.
One person said: "No way? This looks like it's photoshopped?"
While another commented: "Didn't think Mercedes done an eight seater saloon car."
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "On Saturday, October 5, road policing officers stopped a vehicle at 2.20pm on Aikenhead Road, Glasgow, due to its load.
"A 49-year-old male driver was reported for load and other driving offences."
