World Record $1.1 Million Speeding Ticket in Sweden


A Swedish driver just registered the world's highest speeding ticket while driving a $500,000 Mercedes-Benz Gullwing. Traveling at 190 miles per hour, the 37-year-old faces a shocking $1.1 million fine.

Sweden bases traffic fines on a formula that considers speed and the driver's income. According to a Business Insider report, the man "tipped the scale on both."

The UK Telegraph notes that "Police had tried to catch the speedster for weeks, but didn't have radar equipment that could measure that kind of speed."

The driver's excuse? Priceless.

"I think the speedometer on the car, which is new, is faulty," he told police.
