Speeding British Supercar Drivers Caught By French Police Helicopter

Speeding British Supercar Drivers Caught By French Police Helicopter

A helicopter was scrambled to chase five British drivers caught tearing through France at speeds of “over 100mph”.

The petrol heads in top-range Porches and Lamborghinis were spotted whizzing through traffic by an off-duty police chief on a packed road in Biarritz, in the south of France.

The officer phoned colleagues who scrambled a helicopter to try and catch the drivers as they headed towards Hendaye and then on to Saragossa in Spain.

After spotting the chopper hovering overhead, the drivers slowed down, allowing the police cars to catch up.

The men, who have not been named by French authorities, were eventually pulled over at a toll booth where they received fines and a warning that their vehicles could be confiscated if they continued the reckless driving.

Although the speeds were not recorded on any speed guns or cameras, officers are adamant the men were travelling at speeds in excess of 100mph.

A police spokesman said: “The speeds were so high that we had to call in the Gendarmerie helicopter in Bayonne to intercept them.”

France has a strict record of penalising speeding drivers, with at least half a million Brits flashed by speed cameras in the country every year.

On-the-spot fines can be more than £100 and the country’s police force collected £1.38billion in 2014 alone.

Say Hello To The Exagon Furtive-EGT EV Supercar

Say Hello To The Exagon Furtive-EGT EV Supercar

The French company Exagon is making news with its impressive EV the Furtive-eGT. The Furtive-eGT has been around in concept form since 2010 and a few may even have been delivered.

Now it is on its way to the Salute to Style at the Hurlingham Club in London as Exagon appears ready to go into serial production.

Technically the Furtive-eGT is an impressive beast. The car combines an extremely lightweight composite body weighing just 274 pounds, and an incredibly stiff carbon fiber-honeycomb monocoque of the same variety found on F1 cars.

These lightweight bones are powered by some serious electric muscle. Two Siemens electric motors produce a total of 400 horsepower at the rear wheels, good for 0-62 mph in 3.5 tire squealing seconds.

Worryingly Exagon hasn’t said what kind of range we can expect from the SAFT sourced lithium-ion batteries. Hopefully that is because testing just hasn’t been completed rather than furtiveness about the truth.
