The 24-second video begins by showing the speedometer of the car and then pans away to a young woman sitting beside the driver who sticks out her tongue and two smiling young men in the back seats. The voice of a man howling can be heard in the background.

After a "close analysis" of the images, police concluded the car was driving on a stretch of the A-7 highway near the southern city of Malaga where the speed limit is set at 80 kilometres an hour, police said in a statement.
Police tracked down the driver of the car and detained him and fined one of the passengers who is seen in the video without his seatbelt on, the statement added.
The authorities said the video appears to have been posted on Facebook by one of the passengers of the car.
The driver of the car faces charges of posing a danger to the road safety of others due to excessive speed.
