Rich kids hit 270 kph in Moscow outskirts
A passenger was filming what was happening.
A BMW and a Mercedes started a street race near Pavlovskaya settlement. In the impromptu competition, the men sped up to 270 kph on the public road. A passenger in the car Tamaz A. was driving filmed everything and posted the video on the Internet, Life wrote.
During the race, the businessman and his friend were making remarks inserting swear words all along the drive. For a while, the Mercedes S6.3 Amg held on par with Tamaz’s car, but eventually it got behind causing cheers from the winner’s supporters.
It is worth noting that Tamaz A. has repeatedly violated the high-speed limits. You can find more videos with similar races on his social accounts. Previously, he drove a Porsche, and now he has a black and white BMW X5M with the number plate featuring letters BOP (in cyrillic, VOR; the Russian for ‘thief’).
Earlier, the CrimeRussia had conducted a detailed investigation into other races held by the golden youth, and talked about their sponsors.
The biggest race silver-spooners have had was held in May 2016. The rich kids were trying to break away from the police for several hours on a Gelandewagen that belonged to the son of Lukoil vice-president Ruslan Shamsuarov. The youngsters were speeding really fast, violating a number of traffic rules. One of the passengers was filming everything and also broadcasting it online. Eventually, four of the offenders were detained. Three of them were convicted and sentenced to custody and community service.
Another well-known incident occurred this March. Igor Ishaev, the grandson of Khabarovsk Region ex-governor, made a car accident at the MKAD kilometer 1, driving his Mercedes-Benz CLS at a speed of over 230 kmh. Two cars collided with a wagon that turned over and blocked three lanes. The driver himself had a light injury, while his passenger Murat Balakerimov, also well-known in street racing circles, got an open fracture of both legs. The recording of the accident disappeared quite mysteriously: according to law enforcers, preventive works were carried out in the video surveillance system. Ishaev himself accused Anna Marukhina, a driver from a neighboring lane. The story is not over yet, but Ishaev is known to have purchased a new Audi to replace the lost car the very next day.
