Claus Ettensberger, the CEO of the Claus Ettensberger Corporation (CEC), has been awarded the dubious honor of being the first person to receive a speeding ticket in the Lexus LFA.

While details are limited, Ettensberger took a short test drive and was ticketed for doing 91 mph (146 km/h) in a 35 mph (56 km/h) zone.

If you're not familiar with CEC, the California-based company is major importer and retailer for Brabus, TechArt, Novitec Rosso, and AC Schnitzer.

As we have previously reported, the Lexus LFA is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V10 engine with 552 hp (560 PS / 412kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds, before topping out at 202 mph (325km/h).
