There’s nothing quite like the thrill of watching a high-octane chase scene featuring turbo-charged automobiles and police cars, but things are entirely the opposite in reality. Sharjah Police revealed a motorist was recklessly driving on the Nazwa road until a radar recorded his speed at 278 km/h. That’s even more than the top speed of iconic Japanese sports cars like Toyota Supra (263 km/h), Nissan Skyline R34 (250 km/h) and Mazda Rx7 (259 km/h)!
