Dashcam video obtained by WJW shows of one of the flashiest kinds of cars in the world caught zooming down a local highway at speeds you see on a racetrack.

“131, 131 you know how fast you are going,” the Newburgh Heights officer can be heard telling the driver on his body camera.

Police said the 23-year-old man, who is from Newark, Ohio, was pulled over around 1 a.m. on Wednesday.

Chief John Majoy said the driver was going 131 mph on I-77.

When the officer asked why he was going so fast he said he was just “showing off."

The officer was not impressed and issued him a ticket for speeding and reckless operation.

He is due in court later this month.
