Here’s a funny video sent to us by a reader named Rudy, of Claus Ettensberger being the first person to ever get a speeding ticket in the not yet released Lexus LFA super car. Lexus only plans to make 500 of these cars, from December 2010 to the end of 2012, which is about 20 a month. Claus was lucky enough to be one the first people to test the $375,000 ride on the open street, and look what happened. One trip around the block and he got a speeding ticket for going 91 mph in a 35 mph zone. The rider with him said they were doing 103 mph, but the police officer didn’t gun them at the time. I’m just wondering how he didn’t get arrested for almost tripling the speed limit. I know that in most states and countries around the world some serious penalties would be fined, and probably have the car impounded immediately. They lucked out on this one I guess.

You can already guess what the P1000 stands for, a whopping 1,000 bhp from the modified automatic transmission to handle all that power. MKB also offers a variety of limited slip differentials for the 6.0-liter V12 Mercedes-Benz.
