Prototypes nabbed!

Cops in Colorado must have thought all their Christmases had come at once when they spotted three Ford GT prototypes barrelling through the Rockies at twice the speed limit. The pre-production supercars caused such a stir in picturesque Eagle County that three different police departments joined in on the action. The cars were nabbed doing 101mph (162km/h), which was double the speed limit on Glenwood Canyon Highway.

All three drivers were handed heavy fines and demerit points.
