      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!

        • Well, the police here always takes all circumstances into consideration of height of your fine. It was sunny, clear weather, on nearly empty highway, with obviously safe car. And also we have highway standarts as in Germany, but most of our...

        • it's easier to make a mistake and kill someone doing 70mph (really boring speed causes distraction in the process) than doing 150mph in that kind of cars, as long as the driver knows what he's doing.
