Ben Westwood, 33 knocked up speeds of 180mph though the streets of Wolverhampton after an attempted robbery.
Police failed to keep up with the vehicle, which was also stolen and later found it abandoned at a block of flats.
Recorder Nigel Baker QC told Westwood: “You have an appalling record for a man of 33…I have come to the conclusion that the time has come to increase the level of sentencing that you have previously had.”
Westwood, was one of five involved in the robbery and he was given the largest sentence of nine years.
