Brit pulled over by French police blames prosthetic leg for speeding in Lambo

A British driver with a prosthetic left leg who was clocked doing 125mph in his £300,000 Lamborghini Aventador told French police that his foot got stuck on the accelerator.

He was caught in a speed trap near Saulce sur Rhône, southern France, last Saturday as he headed towards Monaco for a rally.

A police spokesman said: “The driver initially said there was a fault but a mechanic checked the car — it was fine.”

In a Facebook post last weekend, Smith wrote: “777 miles to go let’s see how fast the bull can do it. Running a little behind so need to put the beast to the test.”
