Wow, nice. I saw 320 km/h in the video, that is real close to 200 (198.8) mph. I sure wish we could drive like that here in the states. If only our drivers were that aware and did not stay in the left lane, unless they are actively passing someone else (and not holding up a faster car).

Amen to that. The worst is when two cars hold hands down the highway-- you know.. going the same speed yet driving side by side with a bunch of cars behind them.

The Eropeans are more common sense drivers , rarely passing on the right (LEFT in the U.K.), But people should know that speed limits are being added more and more and 200 MPH safely on even the Bahn can be very seldom lately. Even alot of race tracks cannot support the magic 200mph. Timing is EVERYTHING ,Early afternoons ,while everyone else is at work is a good time to hit 200mph outside of the Stuttgart area , the city where alot of speed is made.

in europe it is illegal to pass on the 'wrong' side. I suspect the real reason in Germany is the survival factor - if you have a 20mph closing speed accident, hey - if you have a 100 mph closing accident, that is going to really spoil your day ;-)

Can't hear the chime. Death could have come at anytime during the vid...Too much traffic to be attempting top speeds for me.. Trucks doing 100KPH =R8 doing 300+ KPH a hit would be like hitting wall at 200KPH !! :) :) :)
