Submission + - Swiss millionaire hit by record speed fine (bbc.co.uk) 2

tugfoigel writes: A Swiss millionaire has been handed down a record speeding fine of $290,000 (£180,000) by a court.

The man was reportedly caught driving a red Ferrari Testarossa at 137km/h (85mph) through a village.

The penalty was calculated based on the unnamed motorist's wealth — assessed by the court as $22.7m (£14.1m) — and because he was a repeat offender.
