I guess they won't be needing it for a while.

Anyway at 146 he wasn't trying very hard. My M135 will hit the limiter very easily and quickly.

Do we know that it was the 1-series caught at 146? I'm not convinced that's a 135 tailpipe but it's poor quality and hard to be sure, it may even be a 'library picture'.

Yes, follow to the Police twitter feed and they confirm it... Here.

I miss my 135 in some ways - far better exhaust sound.

Police said they were "shocked" to catch six drivers speeding at more than 100mph (160km/h) within one afternoon,

They don't check that bit of road very often then, I used to use it regularly and those sort of speeds were not unusual at all.

It was a comment alluding to how people on social media immediately decry all instances of safe yet very quick driving as "dangerous" and "outrageous", yet fail to acknowledge that the police do this themselves.

Ah, well, you see, when the police do it they’re super duper drivers who have been on courses and the like and never have accidents but if they did it wouldn’t be their fault because blue lights and stuff, innit.

To be fair though, one thing we can be reasonably confident about is that police vehicles, especially high powered ones, are very well maintained. I've never heard of a police accident happening because of bald tyres, faulty breaks or mechanical failure (I'm sure it will have happened at some point but it will be very rare).

Do blown tyres at 120mph count?

Obviously not as that very likely happened due to a foreign object on the road that NO level of maintenance could prevent.

Well that's a British cop handling a dangerous situation remarkably well, and here's a US cop handing a routine situation remarkably badly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9feVp0RZvQ
