On Saturday morning, highway patrol officers spotted the driver of a Porsche Cayenne filming himself while driving along Albert Park's Aughtie Drive in Melbourne. A few minutes later, he was allegedly found to be driving the luxury car at 100 km per hour in a zone where top speed must be within 40 km per hour. When cops pulled over the driver, he informed them that he had bought the new wheels just 10 minutes earlier, Victoria police said in a statement. Sadly, just 10 minutes into his maiden ride, the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
Coincidentally, the man was driving along Melbourne's Grand Prix circuit, reported Canberra Times.
Victoria Police even shamed the errant driver on Twitter where many others joined in
