POLICE in South Africa say they arrested the driver of a BMW 3 Series who reportedly clocked speeding at 198 km/h on the N14 freeway in Gauteng.
The province’s traffic cops say the 37-year-old driver was nabbed doing almost double the speed limit in a 100 km/h zone of the N14 in Gauteng.
The driver of the F30-generation sedan is facing charges of reckless driving and exceeding the speed limit.
The F30 is BMW’s internal model code specifically for the sixth-generation 3 Series sedan, produced between 2011 and 2019.
Separately, officials say they arrested a 27-year-old driver for reportedly hitting 170 km/h on the N1 near Randburg. – Car Mag ■
