A Swedish man driving a Mercedes was clocked going 180 miles-per-hour in Switzerland.

Nabbed by authorities - he needed almost a third of a mile just to bring the $160,000 sports car to a stop.

Switzerland bases speeding fines on the driver's salary -- as well as how much over the speed limit they are going. That means this driver may be facing a fine of almost $1 million.

Police say they have no record of anyone ever traveling faster in all of Switzerland.
