100 in a Mercedes S65AMG is like 65 in your Toyota...

    Apparently Lebron James got caught speeding doing 101 in a 65 driving his Mercedes.

    Lebron made light of the situation. Some people are upset.

    Personally I have driven a few higher end cars. Especially luxury cars, and can tell you doing 100 in them is like doing 65 in my brothers 2007 Camry.

    Honestly, I feel safer by far in the Mercedes and Caddy's and the like.

    Do you agree that 100=65 in a nice car?

    I agree 100 may feel like 65 in a luxury car...but when the shit hits the fan it doesn't matter much

    Sure the car feels much more stable at high speed but that's still a false sense of security. If he nudges or hits somebody, the collision is still deathly.

    i think famous people should not be fined for irrelevant shit like speeding or drunk driving, because they are better than the rest of us.

    s65 is a huge car

    and with a bi-turbo v12 you can merge onto the freeway and look down and you're going 120 :hsugh:

    I thought you could get arrested for reckless driving if you are doing more than 25mph over the limit. maybe thats just in michigan.or maybe its 45mph over the limit...
