gar1013: Timmy the Tumor: gar1013: Timmy the Tumor: what the hell was the cop driving that he caught up to and followed a Ferrari at 150+ mph?

Can't outrun a Motorola.

no, but the article said the cop caught him and followed him, not that he radioed for someone else to stop him far ahead

That's around the top speed of most police pursuit vehicles.


Only one quarter of the top 12 police vehicles can go 150. Most are in the 125 range.

If they drive as well as they do other police-type things, I'd feel safer with them letting the Ferrari go and not having two amateurs driving at 150+.  One was bad enough.

Nice license plate holder. People who can't read cursive deserve to be impressed too.

Marcos P: Go right to racism and not dumb ass rapper being bilked by record producers.


Your question wasn't at all about the records or the producers, it was about Lil Yachty. What else do you want us to think?

TIL about Lil Yachty.

TIL there even was a Lil Yachty in the first place.

Most fast cars are speed limited to about 150mph.

By a gentleman's agreement between the manufactures and insurers.

Fundamentally it's because 150 mph is where aero starts to be critical.
Many cars will lift their front wheels off the ground at 150mph+. Needs, at minimum, a low front air dam. One that you will lose on the first speed bump.

I'll give you 65 for that Ferrari, used car guy

Nah this one has star provenance.  It was leased by Lil Yakky or some such.

Well OK then!  50 it is!

The knight who says EkiEkiPoontang: Most fast cars are speed limited to about 150mph.


Uh, no. You can buy cars that'll blow right by that from Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, Mercedes, Porsche, etc., and that's not even getting into the exotics. You can buy used Hellcats that'll clear 190 all day for well under $50k.

By a gentleman's agreement between the manufactures and insurers.

It was an agreement between several German manufacturers to keep the Green party off their necks. The actual number was a nice round 250 Km/H, about 155 MPH. Porsche never signed on, and the rest let it go by the wayside several years ago.

Fundamentally it's because 150 mph is where aero starts to be critical.

That's a ridiculous overgeneralization. Some cars are unstable at < 100 MPH (Renault Espace, Nissan Versa, I'm looking at you), others are happy as clams at 180 (Porsche GT2 RS).

Many cars will lift their front wheels off the ground at 150mph+. Needs, at minimum, a low front air dam. One that you will lose on the first speed bump.

No, yet once more. Most modern cars experience lift at both ends, but much more at the rear than the front. See the 1st generation Audi TT for a perfect example of this. In the first year of production people were losing  control and crashing on the Autobahn, at speeds nowhere near 150 MPH. It was the back end coming around on them. Audi wound up fitting a spoiler just past the rear window fo keep the rear wheels on the ground.

Yeah, Ferrari F40 was really freaking planted at 185, Chrysler Sebring Convertible scared the crap out of me at 85 on a country road where the floaty suspension made it feel like the tires weren't making contact at every rise.
