A London man has been handed a 10 week jail sentence for taking a Porsche 911 Turbo on a 172mph spin earlier this year.

Timothy Brady, a 33 year old from Harrow, London, was snared in a routine speed check near Kingston Bagpuize, and pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at Oxford Crown Court last month.

Brady was sentenced today to 10 weeks, and was banned from driving for three years, The Telegraph reports. He was also ordered to pay £474 in costs.

The Telegraph also reported that Brady was not the owner of the £98,000 Porsche. The court was told he worked for a luxury car hire firm and was driving the Porsche without permission when he was clocked by a radar-gun wielding policeman. ®
