Video: Lexus LF-A gets ticket for going 103 mph in a 35 mph zone

There’s no question that the Lexus LF-A is one of the fastest cars you can get your hands on. Unfortunately, the supercar’s speed also makes it a magnet for law enforcement authorities and, as this video will show you, the LF-A can now be associated with a different kind of fast: how fast it can get a speeding ticket.

In this video, Claus Ettensberger of CEC gets behind the wheel of a Lexus LF-A and takes it for a quick ride around the block. Twenty minutes later, Ettensberger returns to the dealership, but when he came back, there was a piece of paper sticking inside his windshield. Yes, dear friends, that piece of paper was a speeding ticket.

Turns out, during Ettensberger’s quick run with the supercar, he got flagged by local authorities for going 103 mph in a 35 mph zone. We don’t know what this dude was thinking, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that going three times over the speed limit is like heaving a stack of pancakes at a hungry man. The radar guns will take advantage of it.

The best part? The Lexus LF-A hasn’t even been released yet, so getting a ticket with a car that has yet to hit the streets is another feather you can add on Ettensberger’s cap.

The rules apply to all so therefore, it must obey by the citizens. Traffic rules are not that hard to follow. It needs total knowledge on driving with discipline, but there are some cases like this are really bothering me—another stupidity of a man who can’t simply follow to the speed limit of 35mph and enjoying his driving on a 103mph. Well, he seems happy after all and still got the chance to took a picture with the Traffic police.

Really nice car! Lexus LF-A would be one of my favorite sportscar!
If i have the money I definitely buy one of this except of course the speed ticketing issue!

haha. What the heck! 103 mph in a 35 mph zone? that’s kind of breaking a speed record! BTW, its just funny that in the end of the video, there’s a photo shoot between the Lexus driver and the speeding ticket officer!
