Fwoggie2,

sure it`s reckless driving, because you have to assume that other drivers don`t necessary see you coming at that speed, and there is no way you can break in time if a car in front you switches to the left lane.

It`s a Corvette C6 Z06. And he`s doing about 195 mph, legally. The Fiat Panda camera car is itself doing 93mph.

It`s not reckless driving. It`s a straight stretch, traffic is very light, it`s not raining and he`s in a car that can go that fast but (even more importantly) stop even faster. The stopping power of those cars has to be seen to be believed.

Also, whilst he`s a little excessively fast, we`re used to cars moving at high speeds. I cruise at between 100-120mph myself, that`s quite common. Using your mirrors is a key skill on the autobahns here and the German driving licence is one of the toughest to pass in the world, taking up to 2 years for most people.

At least 240-260-270 max on the nomiter.

That guy is a accident waiting to happen at that speed.

@Sleepyhallow - depends on the car. My Range Rover ticks along nicely at 3k RPM at 90MPH in 6th. Overall I`d say the camera car had sped up a fair bit by the time we see the speedometer. He seemed to speed up once the car had passed. I`d put him around 70MPH at the time the car passed - putting the passing car at around 130MP-170MPH in my estimation. I think he then puts his foot down in 4th or 5th to try and speed up.

The right-hand gauge is the tachometer, reading between 40 and 50 [x100] rpm which is just about right for 6th gear at the 150 KPH [92 MPH] that the speedometer on the left reads.

Who knows how fast the Corvette was going but top end on a ZO6 is about 220 mph.

I remember bombing it on the Autobahn (I was rocking an Audi TT then) and other cars - mainly high-end Mercs - would regularly fly past me making it looked like I was parked. Quite a surreal experience, though nothing like this speed...

Runemang`s comment has piqued my curiousity.

The camera car is passing approximately 2 centre markings per second and the markings are a standard "no hazard ahead" German marking. There will be a standard for the marking length and the distance between them, but I can`t find what it is.

Looking at it the other way...150Km/h is ~42m/s. So if the car was doing 150Km/h then the distance between the start of one white line and the start of the next is ~21m. That seems too much, so I`m inclined to agree with Runemang.

I think it was a Nissan GT-R, but I wouldn`t bet money on it. The back looks like one, but overall it`s not the same. The profile looks Corvette, but the back doesn`t. Every image I`ve seen of it is blurred, anyway. I think it isn`t a stock anything.

You could probably work out its speed from the rate at which it passes the white lines in the road - they`re a standard length in Germany. My guess would be ~170mph, just guessing from the speed relative to the camera car (which was doing ~90mph).

Stupid, in my opinion. That isn`t a safe speed for that road.

I agree with jclv`s speedometer conversion ... but looking at the scenery, there`s no way the camera guy`s going what his speedometer says. I`m guessing more like 40 or 50 ... actually, that`s about what that right gauge says? ;)

Looked like a 90`s Corvette.

Summer of `91, I was headed through Maryland in a Daytona and a Porsche 911 passed me in similar fashion.
