Ferrari 599 vs Veyron
High-speed car chases on public roads often end in grief than joy. That is what one owner of a Bugatti Veyron supercar discovered after he was pulled over for speeding. The driver of the left hand-drive Bugatti Veyron was fined for racing a Ferrari 599 on Britain’s M27 motorway. The Bugatti as photographs suggest, lead the race for the majority of the ten minutes duration before being pulled over by a BMW Police car. The police car had to reach speeds close to 140 mph to catch up with the Supercar.
The driver of 599 got away with it as he used all of the V12’s 600-odd horsepower and his superior driving abilities to avoid punishment. Furthermore, the car had no number plates, so the cops found it impossible to track the car or the driver. The driver of the Bugatti was given three penalty points and a fixed fine of £60. He was clocked doing 97 mph on a 50 mph zone.
