Taranaki police were shocked after clocking a teenager driving at 195km/h, with four passengers in his car.
"It would be the highest speed I've ever seen on the radar," Detective Kim Severinsen told the Dominion Post.
The incident happened on Tuesday on State Highway 3.
Police chased the 19-year-old's car into Eltham, in South Taranaki, where he tried to hide the vehicle behind a friend's house.
The driver was arrested and charged with excess blood alcohol, failing to stop and driving at excessive speed. (Source: New Zealand Herald). Non-related video clip.
