A tycoon who reached a speed of 257.2mph on a German motorway in his £2.5million Bugatti was condemned by road chiefs yesterday.

Radim Passer, 58, posted a video online of himself racing down the A2 between Berlin and Hanover. Like many sections of autobahn there was no speed limit.

Mr Passer said the stunt in the Bugatti – which can do 0-124mph in 6.5 seconds – was undertaken last year on a six-mile, three-lane strip of road with 'visibility along the whole stretch'.

'Safety was a priority, so the circumstances had to be safe to go,' he claimed.

But his car can be seen passing other vehicles in the blink of an eye and the light in the video suggests it was taken at twilight. 

In a statement, the transport ministry in Berlin said that it 'rejects any behaviour in road traffic that leads or can lead to endangering road users'.
