Shocking video of an exotic car club drag racing down an interstate in broad daylight has been revealed.
The dashcam and traffic footage of the April 2016 incident in Minnetonka, Minnesota was released last week, after prosecutors closed out cases against 12 men charged in the incident.
Seven drivers pleaded guilty to misdemeanors and five won dismissals in the case, the Star-Tribune reported.
The incident unfolded when a state trooper clocked a lime green Lamborghini zipping down I-394 at 110mph.

The pack of cars including two Lamborghinis, a Porsche, a Ferrari, a Mclaren 675LT and a Maserati roar past a school bus on the interstate
State troopers and local police flagged the cars down and lined them up to issue citations
In tight formation followed another Lamborghini, a Porsche, a Ferrari, a McLaren 675LT and a Maserati.
Also participating in the exotic car club outing were three Nissans, a Dodge Viper, an Acura and two Audis.
Traffic cam footage shows the cars roaring past a school bus at one point.
Troopers and local cops raced to pull over the pack of speed demons, who complied when they were flagged over.
‘Last thing I need is for you guys to hit a motorcycle or somebody at 110 miles an hour,’ Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Paul Stricker is heard telling one of the drivers on the video. ‘Somebody’s going to die, unfortunately.’
‘A bunch of beautiful cars going that fast out here. It’s like the Cannonball Run all over again,’ said one state patrol lieutenant
Stricker asks one of the drivers why he thought he was flagged down.
‘For speeding?’ the driver answers.
Stricker replies, ‘A bunch of beautiful cars going that fast out here. It’s like the Cannonball Run all over again.’
Stricker sends the drivers on their way with citations and some advice: ‘You guys got beautiful cars, enjoy ’em.
‘But just run ’em in the right spot. There’s tracks around, I know you can run ’em.’
