Fastest getaway driver clocked at 180mph in modified Audi RS5

A man caught doing 180mph in a police chase on the M6 motorway has been jailed for nine years. Ben Westwood, from Wednesfield, is thought to be the fastest driver to be caught in the UK. Wolverhampton Crown Court heard how during the 65-mile chase in January, Westwood, 33, almost outpaced the police helicopter, in a stolen car. Westwood was found guilty of dangerous driving and conspiracy to burgle and steal earlier this month. The court heard how the modified Audi RS5 had been previously stolen from Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire.

  27. Are you not entertained?

  28. Mate, I’m not born with a silver spoon in my mouth at all. I’m earning less than minimum wage, yet I wouldn’t rob from anybody. Nothing can justify this behavior, stealing somebody’s car that person could have worked very hard for, even gone as far as spending their life savings on it. If you want to take it out on somebody, take it out on the government and the banks who take the food of your plates, not your fellow man.

  29. Are you serious?! Your police force is so well equipped, that equipping them any more would deem them military!

  30. @stevenmack77 check out the Audi s6 c6 it has the 5.2 v10 lambo Gallardo engine stock

  31. Was that fire coming from his exhaust?

  34. lol i was born and raised on council estates its not the countrys fault its the mugs that think the country owes them something. I have made my life the country didn’t help me but i don’t blame it as this country is being sucked dry buy scum that don’t want to work and just drink steal do drugs and claim benefits and the sooner the government realise and cut these people off the faster it can start recovering

  37. If cops had half the stuff you want them to "GUNSHIPS, LASER GUIDED MISSILES" we would be on curfews leaving our houses as and when told.. 1984 come to life.. You under-rate UK cars im in the SOUTH EAST of the UK POLICE drive SUBARU IMPREZAS, MITSUBUSHI EVOS, BMW M3 AND M5’S I think THEY HAVE ENOUGH POWERS ALREADY. Without being kitted up better than the army. We have Armed response, if the 999 call is weapon related then their sent out, but unless ur in a city they will take a while to arrive!

  38. oh this was in 2012?! i think he is out of prison now. lol stupid europe

  39. What happened to Smokey-Nagata and his V12 Supra being the fastest thing on UK Roads?

  40. ) years for robbery and driving fast? wtf? thats way to much

  41. lets get some facts straight firstly, the car was a ringer, been around bham for ages just kept changing number plates, was just tuned. The kid is genuine it is his old man, at the end of the day we all make decisions we have to live with, the video dont show the car getting away or anything, the lads only got caught because they went back to the car after

  42. where was the 180mph?


  44. Can tell they are smokers

  49. I doubt very much you are a good mechanic if you bluntly deny that a lambo engine wont go in an audi. Its common knowledge that a derivative of the v10 engine from the gallardo is used in the RS6

  50. Did the guys not notice a CCTV camera at face level every 10feet from leaving the car? Dumbasses
