I think it takes about 5 to 7 seconds to get to 160km/h from a standstill.
So if he was rolling, probably less.

10 minutes. Lol. That would kill me.

So $280 USD and he loses his car for a week, plus a modest insurance surcharge? Was this person the fast talker of the century, or does BC just not really care if people speed?

This crap has been going on for as long as there have been rich Asian kids with offshore parents living in Richmond/Van and telling their parents they’re studying at UBC, not racing on the upper levels, Squamish Highway or through the Deas Island Tunnel. The fine they get is the cost of the E ticket ride (E ticket ride=best ride at the fair, in this case, the PNE) and they get the cars back in short order and start all over. The only way this recklessness will stop is if some of these leases get crushed and the BC govt doesn't have the balls. With the monopolistic knee cappers known as ICBC (knee cappers because the govt uses them as debt collectors for EVERYTHING and they refuse to renew your plates or DL if you owe a library fine or transit fine from 40 years ago, bloody Stasi) as the only full insurance provider in the Province, you’d think the govt would be more concerned with the issue or at least use them to collect bigger fines.

It’s an absolute miracle they’ve not killed innocent drivers/people, especially when doing over 200kph over the Lions Gate Bridge as mentioned in the video below.

I dread the day I roll off the lot with a new supersport. Though I bet this guy can afford it.

@Jennifer never specifically said that but very often that is the case and her message is very accurate. Having been in the finance business in Vancouver for many years, and seen the in flow of foreign money into our real estate market exotic cars, casinos etc. it has had a major impact on our lifestyle here. Totally, agree that for the excessive and dangerous driving that many of them get caught for the BC government needs to setup and deal with it appropriately.

I question the accuracy of the article when it says he paid $5.2M by credit card?

What you don't think the dealer was willing to give away $182,000 to the weaselly credit card company in fees? ;)

Do i believe my eyes? Members of the RDF saying that the driver of a McClaren should have his car crushed and his driver suspended for doing 100 mph ? At 100 mph that car is barely moving , maybe you guys have never owned a fast vehicle, but 100 mph is really not that fast on a sport bike or a super car , I struggle on my C14 (on my profile picture) to keep my speed under 100 on flat straight interstates with full saddle bags rear case and wife on the back seat, i have my R7 alarm set at 100 mph .

Maybe 100 mph is too fast for a truck or a civic, but some vehicles can handle that speed effortlessly .

Now there are places for it, 100 mph on a 2 way mountain road may be too fast , but 100 mph on a flat road is academic for some cars and bikes

Ha ha, no credit card company would have a limit like that...

He's talking about me... and his comments aren't worth my time, thus the crickets you're hearing.

I prefer at least a slight challenge in my verbal jousting, and by his comments it's obvious it would be an unfair fight. Implying 100mph isn't really fast (on public streets) or condescending comments to me (who's previous car was a 300ZX Stillen Twin Turbo and my present cars are 2 BMW M5's, in 8/10 cylinders) that maybe I've just not driven fast aren't worth debating, if I'm on a countermeasures site, you'd think a safe assumption would be that it was for a reason but whatever. He wins... I give up. ow ow.. it hurts, you win (looking out of the corner of my eye to see if he's buying it).

Don't take the bait Vancity (I keep having flashbacks to my credit union days when I say your name), you and I both know the situation in Van with this particular problem, he's too far from understanding the point to be worth expending your energy.
