Lakers Star Guns Ferrari to 110 MPH -- Cops Swoop In

11/17/2010 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

For a guy nursing a bum right knee, Los Angeles Lakers star Andrew Bynum can still move pretty damn fast ... this according to cops who claim the guy was doing 110 on an L.A. freeway in his Ferrari.

Andrew Bynum Ferrari

Law enforcement sources tell us Bynum was burning rubber in his customized 2010 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano on October 29 -- when cops clocked him going 110 MPH in a 55 MPH zone.

Bynum was eventually ticketed for speeding -- but dude was lucky he wasn't hauled to the slammer.

Law enforcement sources tell us the only reason he wasn't nailed on a reckless driving charge was because traffic was light and the NBA star wasn't weaving in and out of lanes.

lol, who really expects anyone to drive 55mph in a 600bhp car. 110mph in it is like going 30mph in a normal car, only the Ferrari gets to 110mph faster.

I've done 100 in a 55 in NY(Long Island) in my SRT8 with a cop SRT8 along side me. They really don't mind as long as you do it safely, in the middle of the night. The sound of a 1,000 Hemi horsepower (my 575, his 425) running wide open is purely orgasmic. :drool:

The real news here, is that someone in L.A. finally has great style choice in selecting a vehicle. Light traffic, excellent handling vehicle, and great brakes, . . . no problem here!!! At a conservative 110mph, I would suggest that Mr. Bynum was being careful and cautious.

Come on, Harvey, . . . even that little Porsche you drive has been faster than this on the highway, and we all know it!!!

Good Times!!!

I have an SRT8 and very active on the SRT forum. I call BS on your 575 and on the cop driving a SRT. Cops drive the 5.7, no department is going to put an SRT into service, the cost would be astronomical. I would love to know what mod's you have that put you at 575 (even at the fly wheel). A SC wouldn't do it, maybe w/ spray, but I doubt it. So unless you have a 392 or a 427 w/ a SC and spray, there's no way you get to 575.

chris- NYPD Highway patrol has at least 2 SRT8 Chargers. They have the 6.1 and the badge, no wing, no hood scoop.

As far as mine goes, I have enough. No point in telling what, because 90% of the people here would have no clue what I'm talking about. Dynoed just under 400 at all 4 wheels (Jeep) on a Dyno Dynamics, with close to a 30% parasitic loss. And that was with ****loads of knock.

Oh and just so you know, you're thinking is very sheltered. There are blown 426s making over 1,000hp. The quickest Jeep SRT8 is currently running a twin turbo 426 and making close to 1,200.

@Ty
Its not all that simple. Its a very lengthy list, and if nobody is going to know what I'm talking about, I'd prefer not to type it out.
Let me just put it this way; Naturally aspirated, stock displacement, full top end; intake to tips, fuel system, computer work.
