Enthusiasts Please Don't Try Gordon Ramsay's Very Illegal Trick to Avoiding Speeding Tickets
Watch Jon Olsson's Custom 800-HP Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² Blast Through Nature's Worst
This off-road monster packs all the power and capability you could ever want.The Mercedes-Benz G500 4x42 is a monster right out of the box, with a lift kit and 400 plus horsepower, you can essentially run over anything in your path. However, that wasn't enough for professional skier Jon Olsson, so he opted to jack it up even more and add an additional 400 horsepower.
Listen, we understand. Speeding tickets are a major bummer. But we still have to rule against following the example of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay,that he uses plastic cling wrap to cover the license plates on his so speed cameras can't make out the numbers and track him down.

Saleen returns to making its own sports cars
Under the hood isn't a boosted V6 or V8, but rather a 400-horsepower turbo-fourWhy does it matter? While there’s no shortage of two-seat, mid-engine sports cars from any number of manufacturers both big and small, the Saleen S1 is not stupidly priced; just US$100,000. The more interesting aspect is that, while all S1s will be built in North America for now, future plans call for production to be moved to China. Jiangsu Saleen Automotive Technologies Group (JSAT) is a new, separately owned automotive company and is building, says CEO Steve Saleen, a billion-dollar manufacturing facility to produce Saleen vehicles in China for worldwide distribution.
The Hell's Kitchen host and global restaurateur is no stranger to speed, boasting a nine-car fleet of Ferraris that includesEight of them reside in London, while Ramsay keeps his aptly-named California T at his home in Los Angeles. And with a new restaurant opening in Las Vegas, he's been making the long and dusty trip between the two cities quite frequently and speedily—but not without his secret sauce.
"I’ll take it out at 2:30 in the morning on the freeway and I’ll blast on the motorway, and no police catch me and no cameras because I wrap my number plates with cling film,""It’s a great thing for a chef when they get your own Ferrari, just wrap it with cling film. It won’t photograph, it reflects. Brilliant! It’s a great tip. I’m trying to help you."

Brits and Americans use different words for different things, but we're pretty sure "help" isn't one of them. For one, speed cameras can see through plastic wrap, and the idea that they can't is something of a myth (
Not only does plastic wrap not block out a speed camera, it's also fairly obvious to anyone with eyes. Should a cop drive up behind him and notice his handiwork, he's definitely looking at a ticket for an obscured plate. We can sympathize with Ramsay's desire to put his foot down with a 552-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-8 under the hood of that Ferrari California T, but he'd be better offthan these sorts of extralegal measures.
There is one foolproof way to beat a speed camera, though we can't officially recommend it either: Mythbusters alsofound many units weren't able to record a car moving faster than 200 mph. Maybe that's what
