·2-min read

The driver of a $600,000 Ferrari may be forced to catch the bus to his next destination after police allegedly caught him speeding at almost twice the speed limit.

At about 7.40am on Friday, police officers attached to The Hume Highway Patrol allegedly detected a white Ferrari going 204km/h in a 110km zone on the Hume Highway in Goulburn.

The driver, a 42-year-old man from Rhodes in Sydney, was pulled over by police and it turns out the Ferrari was not registered.

The Canberra Times reported that the vehicle is a Ferrari Superfast, which cost about $613,000.

The Superfast has a top speed of 340km/h and can go from zero to 100km/h in less than three seconds – making it the fastest road-going Ferrari ever, according to HotCars.

In addition to being charged for driving an unregistered vehicle, the 42-year-old was issued a Court Attendance Notice for his driving and speeding.

The man's NSW driver's licence has been suspended and his vehicle has been confiscated, NSW Police said in a statement.

He will appear in court in Goulburn later in June.

Man crashes $430k Ferrari right after buying it

Earlier this year a man crashed his £250,000 ($A430,000) Ferrari just moments after purchasing it.

The man had driven just over 3km before crashing what apparently was a Ferrari 488. Photos shared by the police in the UK show the front bonnet of the car is completely scratched and crumpled.

Luckily, the man was not injured in the crash.
