So what happens when you speed way over the legal speed limit? Nothing other than having your car taken away. Two Canadians tried this on their own by taking their 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia and an ’08 BMW M6 to 200 km/h, roughly 126 mph, all done on a 60 km/h speed zone.
Not only the speeding couple went over the limit, but they were also driving recklessly and almost hit a mother who was walking with two children.
From here to having their car impounded was just a step away. To make an example out of them, the provincial government is taking things a step further. Both vehicles are going to be sold. In fact, the Ferrari has already moved on to a new home and the M6 is set to hit the auction block in the very near future.

According to Autoblog, quoting Cnews, the Ferrari is owned in part by a relative of the person driving at the time. That relative will receive 50 percent of the proceeds from the sale, while the other owner receives 30 percent. The government is going to hold on to the rest. The owner of the M6 also receives 30 percent but the government keeps the other 70.
The reason for this post? As much as we love fast cars and fast BMWs, we do not condone reckless driving and we wanted to show what the repercussions could be, and we call these mild repercussions.
