The driver of a luxury car has been caught by police allegedly going 228 km/h on a major Ontario highway.

Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Kerry Schmidt said the 20-year-old driver was stopped and charged on Highway 403 in Mississauga just before 1 a.m. on Thursday.

The Audi S4 has been impounded by police for seven days, police say. The driver has also had his license suspended for a week. 

The posted speed limit in the area was 100 km/h. Driving more than 50 km/h over the posted limit is considered stunt driving in Ontario. 

Motorists caught stunting driving can face up to a $10,000 fine, an immediate seven day licence suspension and seven day vehicle impounding.
