A millionaire has managed to avoid jail time after footage shared online showed him speeding down a German motorway at 259mph in his Bugatti.

Prosecutors launched an investigation into Radim Passer, 58, earlier this year after he was seen sitting behind the wheel of his car with a younger man in the passenger seat.

Passer, a Czech investment chief, appeared at one point to be travelling a staggering 259.1mph on a straight stretch of the A2 between Berlin and Hanover, prompting calls to impose speed limits on Germany’s autobahn roads as well as the investigation into the incident.

By law, prosectors had to prove the driver was moving ‘at an inappropriate speed and grossly contrary to traffic and recklessly in order to reach the highest possible speed’. The top speed of Passer’s Bugatti Chiron is set at 261mph because the vehicle’s tyres could burst if they went any faster.

Following the investigation, the public prosecutor’s office in Stendal closed the investigation citing insufficient evidence to bring charges.
