Fresher handed driving ban after speeding at 150mph in his Ferrari
He was trying to undertake in a £150,000 supercar
A bankrolled first year has been banned from driving after speeding at 150 mph in his one of a kind Ferrari.
Officers couldn’ern keep up with reckless Ali Kzar, 25, after he took his £150,000 Ferrari California for a nighttime joy ride on the motorway.
He was spotted performing a “dangerous undertaking manoeuvre” on the M25 at more than 150 mph.
But police only managed to catch up and stop Business Management student Ali when traffic forced him to slow down.
He was arrested after being hauled over on the M25 in Surrey and was later interviewed where he admitted to driving the car.
Kzar lives in a £1million apartment in Marylebone and attends Regents University, one of just two private unis in Britain which charges a whopping £15,000 per year.
Ali pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at Redhill Magistrates’ Court on Friday, following the incident in March.
Darren Matravers, prosecuting, said: “Mr Kzar stated he didn’t know how fast he was driving but as the officer stated, he was doing over 150 mph, so he probably did.
“When asked if his driving was dangerous, he said he had no opinion on that.”
Mitigating, Fadi Daoud said Ali was spooked by the officer and did not realise it was a police car.
Mr Daoud added that his father is well-known Iraqi businessman and as a result of this, Ali was targeted for driving the Ferrari, which was the only one of its kind in the UK.
Mr Daoud said: “He has been targeted. He received threats. He was told he was being followed.
“There’s only one white Ferrari California in the UK and the threat was that if you’re not respectful there will be consequences.”
He added: “That car is no more, he has not driven it since that time and he has avoided anything that will bring attention to him, I think he relies on Uber now.”
Head magistrate Michael Staples said: “Mr Kzar, you’re young which is in your favour in this instance.
“You’ve got no previous record but your driving was extremely dangerous.
“The simple lane change in front of you might have resulted in the death of not only other people but yourself.”
Ali was given a four month sentence, suspended for 18 months and 200 hours of unpaid work.
He was also disqualified from driving in the UK for two years and been electronically tagged.
What’s more, he has a home curfew from 7pm until 7am for four months and was fined £165.
Mr Daoud stated that first year student Kzar has no capital wealth of his own and is given a monthly allowance of £1,500 after rent by his family.
