Driver clocked at 250 km/h

A 26-year-old Toronto man was clocked roaring down Hwy. 400 at an unprecedented 250 kilometres an hour just after midnight.

“That’s the highest we’ve got someone at that I know of,” said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Dave Woodford.

The man was driving an Infiniti G35 at its top speed south on Hwy. 400 near Finch when he was tracked with a laser around 12:30 a.m., Woodford said.

“According to the manufacturer, that’s the top rated speed, 250, before the engine konks out. That’s what its limited to.”

Woodford said he did not know if the driver had modified the vehicle to enable it to travel faster.

Antonio Talarico was charged with stunt driving under the province’s Highway Traffic Act. His car was impounded and his license was suspended as a result of the charge. Stunt driving charges take effect if a vehicle is travelling 50 kilometres an hour or more over the speed limit.
