FEELING THE NEED FOR SPEED: A Japanese driver has been arrested two years after posting videos of his high-speed sessions in his Lamborghini (not pictured) to video sharing site YouTube.

TOKYO, Japan - A Japanese executive driving his Lamborghini at more than twice the speed limit was arrested after posting a video online chronicling his racing exploits, police said on Tuesday, July 10, 2012.

The 38-year-old man whizzed through the western city of Hiroshima as fast as 160km/h in a zone restricted to 60km/h during his 2010 joy ride.

He reportedly rigged a video camera inside the Italian sports car and later uploaded the footage to video-sharing website YouTube, where a viewer saw the footage and reported him to the police, authorities said.


Police eventually found the man and arrested him for traffic violations.

Explaining his need for speed, the executive reportedly said: "I enjoyed the sound of the engine and the speed."

The YouTube posting has since been removed.
