I didn’t know Renaults were that hot.

A Romanian driver was stunned to receive a speeding ticket – for driving his 15-year-old Renault at 310mph. Driver Toader Moise, 62, was told he had clocked up the incredible speed in the narrow, bendy streets of the mountain city of Sinaia.

The car, which had a maximum speed of 110mph when it was brand new, is up for sale but Mr Moise is now considering upping the price.

Traffic police in China pulled over a man who was driving the chassis of a lorry down a motorway.

The ‘lorry’ had no driver’s cab, bodywork or even lights – and to make matters worse it was carrying another chassis on top of the first.
