It could have been worse for the driver of this Arctic White C7 Corvette Z06 coupe caught speeding at double the speed limit in London, Ontario, Canada this week.

He was pulled over after being clocked at 158 kilometers per hour (98 mph), nearly double the 80 km/h (50 mph) limit.

Ontario officials are considering changes to the Highway Traffic Act that would stiffen penalties to a 30-day license suspension and 14-day vehicle impoundment for drivers caught going 40 km/h (25 mph) over the limit.

As it stands now, this Z06 driver will lose both his license and his Corvette for a week, the automatic penalties for drivers clocked going at least 50 km/h (31 mph) over the limit.

This case, which occurred on Wonderland Drive, comes on the heels of a similar crime involving a teen driver who was clocked at 112 km/h in a 60 km/h zone near Western University.

  1. 98 in 50 zone? The Z06 needs a tuneup! I have a Honda mini van that can do that all day long! Not that I ever would except maybe in Mexico!
