BMW M2 Driver Gives Funny Explanation For Being Caught at 242KMH!

1y ago


Police couldn't believe their eyes when this BMW M2 came flying past, clocking 242KMH (150MPH) past the police car in Slovakia. The police must hear every excuse under the sun from drivers who are caught speeding, but this one is new on me.

Police stopped the driver, who was doing the speed in a 112KMH (70MPH) limit, but were surprised to find a 44 year old man behind the wheel, who was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The M2 is powered by a 3.0L, twin-turbo straight 6 engine, producing 365BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed limited to 155MPH.

The driver's reasoning behind his speed was that he thought the M2 had a problem, and wanted to test the fault in the car at high speed. The driver would then explain this fault to technicians when the car went in for a service. Police were shocked at the driver's excuse, and although they didn't take his license, they charged the driver the highest possible fine for speeding, €800 Euros!

    • The terminology twin-scroll is misleading. It's not what it suggests. Google what twin scroll really is.
