A Japanese executive driving his Lamborghini at more than twice the speed limit was nabbed after he posted a video online chronicling his racing exploits, police said Tuesday.
The 38-year-old man whizzed around the western city of Hiroshima at nearly 160 kilometres per hour (97 miles an hour) in a zone restricted to just 60 kilometres an hour during his joyride two years ago.
He reportedly rigged a video camera inside the Italian sports car and later uploaded the footage to video-sharing website YouTube, where a viewer saw the footage and reported it to police, authorities said.
Police eventually found the man and arrested him for traffic violations.
Explaining his need for speed, the executive reportedly said: "I enjoyed the sound of the engine and the speed."
The YouTube posting has since been removed.
