The three supercars were cited going 101 miles per hour in a 50 mph zone, according to Jalopnik. Because that's more than 20 mph over the posted speed limit, the three drivers will be summoned to court in Colorado.
The prototypes were probably conducting high-altitude testing in Colorado when the boys in blue pulled the vehicles over. Testing a vehicle, especially one like the GT, can be a tempting venture. According to Vail Daily,the prototypes had data-collecting equipment, which the automaker is most likely using to put the finishing touches on the supercars before delivery of the vehicle officially commences.
Thanks to the GT's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that puts out more than 600 horsepower, saying the supercar is fast doesn't do the vehicle justice. With an expected top speed of over 200 mph, we're sure the prototypes could've gone much faster. One thing's for sure, with 500 applicants guaranteed to get a GT, this won't be the last time someone behind the wheel of the supercar has a run in with the law.
