A 30 year old limousine driver from America has been fined £220 for speeding in a Chrysler limo; the driver will now be placed in 3 months of supervision for his driving on a busy road in Naperville thoroughfare. The driver has pleaded guilty for driving more than double the speed limit and will be charged of street racing in court as it has been revealed he was trying to race somebody. It happened at around 11pm back on the Olympus Drive in the central part of the city. The speed limit on the road is around the 45mph zone so he is very lucky he didn’t cause major damage to somebody or in fact himself due to the built up area.

On October the 24th he paid a £220mph fine and due to his offence being a one off he is now under 3 months probation period to monitor his services, he hasn’t lost his job and it has said to be one off from the driver and according to courts he was very apologetic towards his behaviour and they feel that they have reacted correctly towards the system.

The limousine driver is now behaving according to the courts and it is said he will be not be doing such a thing again in the future.

Man Robs a Hummer limo and runs from Police Naked

A naked man who decided to rob an h2 hummer limousine was chased around Irvine California for hours after he stole the limo and the unidentified man was in fact dressed when he stole the limo at gunpoint but then for some reason took his clothes off in the limousine and drove around naked. In the footage where he is seen attempting to escape the smoke from the tyres. The limo was still rolling and the thief opened the door and jumped out the limo fully naked. The police helicopter was in pursuit of him and he was still running trying to escape the police.

He started waving his hands through a public area trying to maybe get attention from the public to support him running through the residential area; however his glory run came to an end when he was tackled to the ground by a police dog. The German Shepherd managed to hold the man by his legs until two officers came and collected him and took him away. The man was the lone robber in the crime. The chase ended at 9:45pm and the Police are still unsure why the robber took his clothes off half way through the journey.

It is now said that the man could end up in county jail for his offence.

Andy Johnson Apology for Limo Row

Premiership footballer and England capped Andy Johnson has made an official public apology after being caught parking his £150,000 Bentley Continental limo in a person’s disabled spot. The authority are said to be appalled by the England strikers behaviour, however the England star has said the incident has been taken out of proportion and it was a genuine mistake made by himself and he didn’t mean to offend anybody by the situation.

Outraged locals complained after the £40,000 a week star left his Bentley Continental limo in the space where it shouldn’t have been but locals are saying the footballer did it on perhaps as he could clearly see the disabled sign while he popped into the newsagents in Surrey. Anita Whiting whose brother is Steven is now disabled and Johnson’s action had been utterly disgraceful. 

The footballer is now to hear from the F.A and the local council on what happened and if further action shall be taken such as a fine or if the local people will accept an apology.

The New Bentley Continental GTC

Bentley is the jewel in the Volkswagen Group’s crown, British-based but German-owned. The cars are made in Crewe, in the factory that was once home to Rolls-Royce before it was taken over by BMW and moved to Hampshire. Since the two split Bentley has thrived, producing models that are a blend of modern technology and precision manufacturing infused with a strong garnish of traditional bespoke craftsmanship. The Continental GT coupé has been a big success for Bentley, and this latest GTC convertible is at the pinnacle of the range.

This car is the second-generation GTC, and has morphed slightly in looks compared with its predecessor. It now has more tautly drawn body lines that freshen the styling within the same dignified silhouette. The grille is less raked and more vertical then before, and LED headlamps have been added to the car’s night-time repertoire. Here is a convertible that demands no compromise, a big sporty drop-top designed to cosset you, whether you drive it with the top up or down. Compared with the previous GTC, it is 70 kg lighter and has been given a wider track.
