The French fuzz revoked Eric Clapton's British license after clocking him at 216 km/h (roughly 134 mph) in his Porsche 911 Turbo, 86 km/h over the limit near Merceuil in western France. Clapton can still drive in Britain, but will have to recover his license through a diplomatic route, i.e., bribing a government official. The guitar legend was order to pay a 750 Euro fine and pose for pictures with the gendarmes. He left the scene is the passenger seat with his secretary at the Porsche's controls.
