Ferrari 430 Scuderia pulled over for speeding

Imagine this. You have been saving money for a long time to buy that special Ferrari you've always wanted to buy. When you go for a drive, you really want to give the car a good go and get familiar with it. Untill you're being pulled over by the police...

This is what happened to a guy who just picked the Michael Schumacher version of the Ferrari F430, the 430 Scuderia, according to a Belgian newspaper. The Scuderia is Ferrari's brand new car and the first cars are being delivered to its owners from this week. The driver was pulled over for driving 150 kilometers per hour on a road with a maximum speed of 70 kilometers per hour. Result: the driver is not allowed to drive a car for the next 14 days!

The car had only done 23 kilometers. Local police from the Bergen-Quévy police department had "flash-photographed" the car near the Belgian town of Ghlin. After the camera snapped the license plate, the police chased the Ferrari which was accelerating to a staggering 150 kilometers per hour.
