The driver had a helmet on, and was ripping up the back roads... It was hard for me to keep up, but then he got stuck behind a truck at a U-turn... so my mouth made a U turn of its own... caught up and managed one picture before he zoomed away again. And to beat it all he even wizzed pass a cop vehicle as well

At the time I was driving a rental... a 2008 Caprice had it in sports mode... but it wasn't much of a chase as the back road had some traffic, I topped out ~140 and managed to get him at the U... that guy had all the advantages including size, at one point I had to wait for a chance to pass a bus while this guy just whizzed past it.

140 !! Wow man, looks like that street doesn't have speed cameras. Doesn't matter, as long as you got us an Atom snap :-)

Like I said, it was a back road, so the cops aren't really interested in fixing speed cameras around there... almost 75% of it's traffic are truckers... not much bait for the cops... although the big men do let it rip at times.

Hmm true I missed the "back-road" part. Someone in Dubai took me upto 180kmph in his Mini on Sheikh Zayed !! I was totally sure we would get flashed but he knew exactly where the cameras were. That was one wild ride, all the way from Bur Dubai upto Knowledge Village. Didn't even know Minis in stock form could do 180 so easily.

The Ferrari is not in Dubai. It's in Riyadh,Saudi Arabia. The owner previously owed a White Carrera GT and made a name for himself through a video of him and an M5 drifiting on publics roads.

Heres the link(music is terrible):

Not too sure about the rules of this forum but if that car is not in Dubai but Riyadh, shouldn't it be under the Cars Spotted in Saudi Arabia section? Who would be responsible for moving it?
