Swedish man faces $1 million speeding ticket for going 180 mph in an SLS AMG

2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

A Swedish driver was enjoying a high speed of 180 mph in Switzerland until he got pulled over by the local police. Getting pulled over in Switzerland is probably the worst thing that can happen to anyone breaking the speed limit since under Swiss law, the level of fine is determined by the wealth of the driver and the speed recorded.

The 37-year-old drive, who has not been named, could be fined a whopping $1 million for traveling 180 mph in his new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. In January, another Swiss driver was fined $290,000, which is the current world record.

There must be a place to honor these guys.
