first, he was going 150kmph....and second, 100mph may not be lightening-fast but it def aint slow. that (lambo? bugatti? hard to tell) other car seemed to be going twice the speed at LEAST

I don`t care if he was only going 100mph (160km/h), that car passed him like he was riding a freakin` tricycle. If I was going 100mph (which isn`t slow) and someone passed me like a bullet, I would probably jizz a little.

You can tell the guy filming speeds up as he passes the car in front of him and the speedo only shows 150 kph. I`m guessing the noise he was making was actually a reaction the fact that he was out of gas.

160 km/hr is a little fast for me, but on the Coquihalla highway here in B.C. where the speed limit is 110 km/hr, it`s not uncommon for people to do over 140. I myself keep it around 130-140 but I still get passed a lot so 160 isn`t that big of a deal. The other car? Yea, he`s going fast. Was passed one time by a little yellow sports car going close to that fast. Not quite as fast, but close. Crazy.

Yea and 160 American dollars is like 3 Euros.

Anyway, this is another description fail, as he`s obviously going 160kph. If I could take a guess he`s on the autobahn in Germany.

But what about the other car. How fast was IT going? I`d guess it at at least 250.

160Mi/hr is 257Km/hr
160Km/hr is 099Mi/hr

The highway that they are on is called the Autobahn, there is no speedlimit but most people stick to around 120Mi/hr.

Learn your facts before you get all hyped up.

Not only that, but the metric system is the number one cause of drug abuse in Europe;
It also causes computer crashes, break failure, nervous spasms, slow growing grass, insomnia, obesity, daltonism and bad breath.

Ok the camera car may only be doing just under 100mph (once it`s sped up to overtake) but the `vette has to be going a lot quicker, Im guessing upwards of 150..

Which is a bit risky, considering he`s very rapidly closing on someone about to overtake, who, thankfully, did check his mirrors.

I understand that it was in KPH but the passer was still going incredibly fast. From the look of it, it was at least double. So... 160Kph x 2 = 320 KPH which is like what? 200 MPH

Jereth got to it first, yup, kph. First clue is the fact that the car only has a single arc of numbers. Also note the reason why this was safe. The driver taking the video was only over to the left long enough to overtake the car in front of him and then moved back over. That is required by law in Germany (presuming this is on the Autobahn in an unrestricted section). None of this hanging out in the overtake lane crap. You move over to overtake, move back, period.

Not 160MPH but 160KPH. 160KPH = 99.42MPH. Still fast but not as dangerous as most of us Americans think. This is just a bit above average Autobahn speeds (120 - 140KPH or 75 to about 88MPH) in Germany where on most major highway arteries between large cities there is no speed limit. So, the guy getting passed as he did is not that rare of an occurrence.

The car filming was moving at about 96 mph (157km/h) or so....the car that passed him was probably moving around 160-180 mph. I`ve done many highway pulls and been passed by cars going 160+ mph. Looks about like that. You know a car`s fast when one passes you like that while your foot is flat to the floor and you`re in a 300 WHP car.

100mph isn`t fast, not in Europe. Hell, I cruise at 90 in the UK (lots of people do, when we`re not stuck in one of our eternal traffic jam). Even my mother does - the speed limit of 70 for cars on motorways just isn`t enforced.

Personally I thought it was a porsche 911 and he`s gotta be doing something around 180+. Which is a bit dumb on a 2 lane autobahn. Also, why anyone would own a corvette in Germany is beyond me. They might be fast, but they`re excessively thirsty on fuel, don`t corner as well (mind you that`s not an issue on the autobahn) and haven`t got as good braking as the top German marque supercar models do, which is biblical.

I reckon it`s an American serviceman who`s shipped his motor over and is based out of one of the USAF bases in Germany.

First off, I really doubt he was actually going 160. Seeing those lines on the road go by at that speed, I`d say at most he was doing 90.

Still the speed of that car passing him, I`ve only ever seen them do it that fast when I`m standing on the side of the road, and that guy was DRIVING when it past him. So whatever that other car was doing, it was doing it pretty stonking fast.

Not all, no. I`m not convinced that the front of the car (seen in the wing mirror) looks like a Corvette.

He could have been doing 70 when the other car passed - there was plenty of time to accelerate between then and when he showed his speedo.

To get a decently accurate figure for the other car`s speed, we`d need to know the framerate that the film was shot at and an accurate measurement of distance. We could get the distance from the broken white line in the centre of the road - I bet they`re a standard length and distance apart. Then it would just be a matter of counting frames to get the time taken to move a known distance...assuming that no frames were dropped when the video was converted to put on the net.

Personally, I don`t care enough to bother finding out the necessary details.

It is definitely a Corvette. And it IS possible it was going over 200 MPH--if it isn`t stock. It sure didn`t sound stock. Lingenfelter makes kits for the C5 Corvette with 427 Cu. IN. displacement, twin turbos and over 1000HP. Don`t believe me? You don`t have to. Here`s a link to Lingenfelter`s site and the specific Corvette used in the Road and Track magazine`s supercar shootout:

it`s a vette. and those suckers likely max at around 170mph stock, so this could likely be real. passing that guy at max speed would be like standing still next to an interstate. seems reasonable.

still looks INSANE though. made me check the numbers to see if it was possible lol

Hmm...would someone else download the higher quality version from YouTube (HQ18) and look at the few frames just before the car comes past?

Specifically, look in the wing mirror to see the car approaching.

I`ve just done that and it doesn`t look like the same car to me.

firstly, its kilometers per hour. 160 kilometers = 95-100 mph. so still fast, but, then again, that is the autoban, where u drive as fast as you choose.

Male 438
That`s DEFINITELY kilometers per hour, considering a Bugatti Veyrone goes 249 mph you wouldn`t have the dash board of an economy car read 240 mph that`s just stupid.

Also it`s a Corvette! If you download the video and look at it in slow motion, on frame 20 or so you can see in the rear view that it has a square lower grille and looks like a corvette but definitly has a square lower grille.

Any estimations on his speed?

Also, what the drat would he do if the lane wasn`t clear? Seems like, at that speed, the time between seeing a car in front of you, and reaching that car is about 1 or 1 and a half seconds, lol.

I`m still 100% sure it`s a Corvette. You can see it coming in the side mirror to see the front end, and you can see the back end driving away. They don`t HAVE to be on the autobahn to be going fast.

To everyone saying it`s a Corvette, I`mma go with Colin1231 on this one - more likely a Nissan Skyline. This is obviously somewhere in Europe (prob autobahn in Germany as others have said). And American cars are EXTREMELY rare over here for various reasons (not going there). However there are tons of Japanese cars. In fact, having lived here for 7 years, I`ve NEVER seen a Corvette, but I`ve seen hundreds of Skylines.

As it was said before its 160km/h, plus is obvious he accelerated (he was probably going around 130km/h) If the first car was not in motion the speed of the vette was more or less equivalent to 100km/h. Beeing so, adds to around 230km/h (143mph) but anyway lets make it a 240 or 250km/h (155mph) its still not that impressive for a vette.

First of all, it was kph and he was just getting to 150 when he tipped the camera down. That converts to about 90 mph.

Secondly, it seemed to me like he accelerated after he was passed but before we saw the dashboard.

The vette(?) was definitely flying, but not nearly as impressive when you do the math.

the guy`s driving 160 on empty? i would first think they`re driving on the autobahn. which makes me think it`s 160 kph which is about 100 mph. but then it`s a left side driving car, so i dont know.
