A 28-year-old was driving a tuned BMW without a license on the A 96.
The police caught the man and now he's facing a hefty fine.
Gilching – “From the Hockenheimring to the Autobahn”: This is the title of a press release sent by the Fürstenfeldbruck traffic police on Friday.
And she immediately sent photos of a purple sports car with "Racing" written on the windshield.
A 28-year-old from Neu-Ulm was driving the car on Tuesday around 1.45 p.m. on the A 96 towards Munich.
At Gilching, the security investigators saw it, checked it and found that something was wrong with the car - at least when it came to driving it on the road.
The man now has to reckon with a fine of several hundred euros and has to take care of a new operating license.
The press report mentions a "loud BMW M3".
It has 420 hp as standard.
The Neu-Ulmer told the officials that he drives the car almost exclusively on racetracks - for example on the Hockenheimring.
On the A 96 he wanted to break in the newly installed V8 engine and at the same time have it optimized by a tuner in Munich.
"For the time being, nothing came of it, since the exhaust system had a significantly higher decibel value and various components had not been removed or had no approval," writes the police.
An expert also confirmed a suspicion of the officials: The operating license had expired.
Therefore, the 28-year-old was not allowed to continue.

Exactly how much fine the man has to pay depends on the defects in the car
Exactly how much fine the man has to pay depends on the defects that the expert finds on the car.
The report was not yet available to the police on Friday, said police chief Alex Vogginger.
And how does the racing driver get his operating license back?
He now had to submit an expert opinion himself, "in which the exhaust system and other defects were checked by an expert.
In addition, any impermissible components must be removed,” says Vogginger when asked.
