Getting up to 100 mph in a 600LT takes only about 6 seconds from a dead stop. Yeah, cars are fast these days — the 600LT and 600LT Spider are especially fun to drive. Though we're guessing any sort of plea along those lines would not have worked on the officers in charge of this decision. West Vancouver police took the liberty of photographing the car, using it as an example to other would-be supercar speeders. They also ticketed the driver $368 Canadian for the infraction. Frankly, the $368 fine can't be much of a deterrent for folks who can afford an over-$240,000 car. It's the weeklong separation from the car and dinged license that probably hurt the most.
Under British Columbia law, speeding at 40 km/h over the posted speed limit results in the immediate impoundment of the car. That's equivalent to about 25 mph over the limit. This McLaren was doing 70 km/h over. So, anyone driving through British Columbia not wanting their car to be impounded, make sure to keep your speed in check. Even more so if you happened to just pick up a brand new supercar.
