A racing sports car with a street license hunted by a radar at 199 km/h in Teruel

A racing sports car with a street license. This is the Mercedes-AMG One, a sports car with Formula 1 technology, with a production limited to 275 units. 1,063 CV of power, thanks to a combination that, again, will remind you a lot of the one used by the Formula 1 cars that meet at the grand prix. 1.6-liter V-six cylinder engine and 670 hp, supercharged by an electric turbo, and four electric support motors.

A real unicorn. A sports car that one does not expect to find on the street. What the Civil Guard agents who came across him would even less expect is to hunt him down with a radar at 199 km/h. A speed that, without a doubt, this sports car that will be sold for more than 2 million euros comfortably reaches.

Just a few days ago the Mercedes-AMG One became the fastest production car at the Nürburgring, with a time of 6 minutes and 35.183 seconds. The 100 km/h reaches them from a standstill in 2.9 seconds and to reach the 199 km/h that this car was hunted would need only 7 seconds. Its top speed is 352 km/h.

The Mercedes-AMG One is the fastest production car around the Nürburgring and reaches 352 km/h

The Mercedes-AMG One breaking the record at the Nürburgring, in a scenario in which those speeds can be reached legally and safely.

Hunted by a radar at 199 km/h

The Traffic Civil Guard would have intercepted a Mercedes-AMG One at 199 km/h these days with a radar, circulating on the A-1512 road, in the municipality of Cella (Teruel). The vehicle, registered in Germany, was traveling on a section limited to 90 km/h (Europe Press).

The vehicle was intercepted on November 13, after being identified by the Traffic Agents of the Teruel Civil Guard Command while operating a radar. The case would have gone to the disposal of the Teruel Investigating Court number 1, which would be in charge of investigating a possible crime of speeding. Remember that in a section limited to 90 km/h, driving at more than 170 km/h is considered a crime. The Criminal Code establishes, in fact, that speeding can be considered a crime in the following circumstances:

  • 30 km/h limit (city): drive over 90 km/h
  • Limit of 50 km/h (city): travel at more than 110 km/h
  • Limit of 90 km/h (city): travel at more than 170 km/h
  • Limit of 120 km/h (city): travel at more than 200 km/h

When a radar photo is a crime

This is established in article 378.1 of the Penal Code:

Whoever drives a motor vehicle or a moped at a speed greater than sixty kilometers per hour on urban roads or eighty kilometers per hour on interurban roads than what is legally permitted, will be punished with a prison sentence of three to six months or with the of a fine of six to twelve months or with that of works for the benefit of the community of thirty-one to ninety days, and, in any case, with the deprivation of the right to drive motor vehicles and mopeds for a period of more than one and up to four years

If after investigation the perpetrator is found guilty of a crime, he or she could face the following sanctions:

  • Imprisonment from 3 to 6 months, a fine from 6 to 12 months, or work for the benefit of the community from 31 to 90 days
  • Deprivation of the right to drive motor vehicles and mopeds for between one and four years

Every year, the Traffic Analysis and Investigation Group (GIAT) investigates hundreds of files initiated by the Traffic Association in which alleged speeding offenses are investigated.
