Australian auto journalist gets Ferrari California press car impounded

Ferrari California

There are a certain number of rules we follow when we receive a new press car for the week. Obviously safety being our first concern, we try not to get out of control when testing a new a car. However, with high-performance models, its a bit difficult not to loosen up a bit and push the limits of the car (especially if it’s not your car).

An Australian journalist was caught driving a Ferrari California at 144 mph – prompting the police to charge him with reckless driving, issuing a huge speeding-ticket and impounding the California under the so-called “hoon legislation” for seven days.

The Ferrari California is one of the only two in Australia and was being driven by Financial Review auto writer Rod Easdown.
