Ferrari Driver in Japan Posts Speeding Video, Now Faces Jail Sentence

A Japanese doctor that has a passion for the Prancing Horse recorded himself speeding on public roads in his 458, posted the video on Youtube and has now been targeted by the police, facing a fine and even a jail sentence.
The clip, which was filmed last April on coastal roads and highways in Fukuoka, shows the supercar being driven at high speeds. Worried citizens alerted the police back in May, who were able to determine the car’s speed comparing the covered distance with the time of travel.

It seems that the driver now faces a fine and could even receive a six months jail sentence. The driver explained that he recorded the video and shared it because he wanted everybody to understand what the Ferrari spirit is all about.

Our say: what’s all the fuss about? He was a doctor - if he had crashed, he could have taken care of himself...
