Nissan GT-R Driver Caught Doing 276KM/H (171mph) On A 100KM/H (62mph) Highway In Spain

The driver of a Nissan GT-R was caught going 176 km/h (109mph) over the speed limit on a highway in Almeria, Spain.

More specifically, the local police clocked the Japanese sports car doing 276km/h (171mph) on January 26, with the speed limit set at 100km/h (62mph) on that particular section of the motorway.

According to the Spanish law, the GT-R owner could face a crime against road safety which in turn can result into the loss of the vehicle’s registration, his driver’s license and either a heavy fine or imprisonment.

The accompanying photo came from the Policia’s Facebook account, which is an unofficial page dedicated to members of the national security forces.

It’s important to note that speeding in Spain is considered a crime if police catches you speeding with more than 40km/h (25mph) over the limit.

The news came just a few months after a Mitsubishi Evo was caught speeding at 144mph (233km/h) on a 62mph (100km/h) highway in Tarragona, Spain, as reported by Periodismo del Motor.

H/T To Hugo!

    might as well, if you can afford one would be stupid not to try and max it out. Granted, i would rather take it to the track

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Save it for the track. Jesus…

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Oh, who am I kidding, even I couldn’t contain myself.

      • Jay

        He should sue nissan for letting the car drive that fast when not on a race track clearly its their fault 😭😭.

        • Tumbi Mtika

          Exactly, what a joke, Nissan. Your cars should know better!

    Am I the only one that thinks the 100kmh speed limit on a highway is stupid?

    • BGM

      In many places in the US – including the 5 lane highway I take to and from work each day – the speed limit is a whopping 88kph. I’d love 100!

    • Marcin Lewandowski

      Yes it is, stupid and dangerous – I fall asleep on flat straight roads with such limits.

      In my stupid country the only thing is good, Highway speed limit is 140 km/h (~85mph). You can drive up to 160 km/h (100 mph) and nobody fines you. But ours western neighbourhood (Germany) is better because of autobanhs, especially Bavaria 🙂 But, so what. I prefer speedeng on mountains snake roads, but sadly my area is f**n flat.

      To keep stupid people like you under control

  • I drove the GTR on 100/130 limited motorways, it’s a matter of not looking at the speedo for a few seconds and you are above 200. Can’t blame them, they were unlucky, unless they drove all the time like lunatics.
