California Highway Patrol pulled over the driver of a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ in the Buellton area after he drove nearly three times the speed limit of 88 km/h (55 mph) on SR-154 at 244 km/h (152 mph) .
“We know how tempting it can be to step up to such a fast car, especially when the weather is nice, but let’s save that for the race track,” warned the authorities in their Facebook post. The person was cited for careless driving, but it was not revealed how much he was fined.
It is conceivable that the speeding Lamborghini driver will not be hurt the most by a possible fine of around HUF 400,000.
Referring to KTLA reports, Motor1.com writes that this can mean a fine of up to 1,000 dollars, i.e. slightly more than HUF 400,000, but a 90-day prison sentence can also be imposed for flagrant speeding. (It is another matter that the former item is almost dwarfed by the value of the roadster.)
In 2018, the Italian sports brand introduced the Aventador SVJ, powered by a 770 horsepower V12 naturally aspirated engine with a torque of 720 Nm. Its top speed is 250 km/h – that is, only 6 km/h more than what was measured – while the 0-100 sprint takes just 2.8 seconds.
