A motorist has been arrested on suspicion of driving at 172mph on a rural road.

The 33-year-old man was detained by police who had been using a speed gun on a bridge over the A420 near Abingdon, Oxfordshire, on Saturday.

The man has been released on police bail until 17 February.

Helphire, a car lease firm in Abingdon, said an employee who had "borrowed" a 98,000 Porsche 911 Turbo without permission had since resigned.

The cynics amongst us might also wonder about a) the accuracy of the speed gun and b) the IQ of the coppers

Inded. :D

Although google tells me a Porche 911 turbo has a top speed of just over 200 mph

He's got to be a fairly skilled driver. 172 on a rural road is not easy.

Just ask the Hampster. He had trouble on a large, flat runway.
