Speed Run Challenge: Guerilla Marketing at its finest

Really, you can't buy publicity like this: RCMP investigate video showing cars hitting speeds of 300 km/h

Alberta RCMP have arrested four people for allegedly driving
Ferraris and Lamborghinis at speeds in excess of 300 km/h, one of whom is
featured in a video circulating on the internet showing luxury cars hurtling
down the province's highways.

Don't forget to read the comments on YouTube.

And of course, if you're in the market for a high performance vehicle, consider ZR Exotic Auto Sales in Calgary.

*UPDATE* I just wanted an exuse to post this picture, even though it has nothing to do with the story:

Thank you for making it easy for me to see what the RCMP found so interesting. The comments on YouTube are largely beyond bizarre.

The REAL, crime is the paint job on that Testarossa!

OK! I couldn't resist.

Seriously, if folks with money want to buy cars that can perform like that, then they can afford to pay for track time at the local racetrack to wring their toys out. If they do it on the street I'm all for arming the cops with RPG's. We can always fill in the holes in the highway later.

In my opinion this is definitely a "let God sort 'em out" kinda situation.

'Nuff said!
