Zx-10 being overtaken by an audi at 300kmph 

Driving from Augsburg to Munich together with an Audi RS6 ABT (700hp). The total distance of ~50km (~31 miles) was completed in under 15 minutes. That results in a average speed of around 215 km/h (~133 mph). You thought that a litre bike is faster than almost every car?

  • Germans are among the best qualified drivers in the world, probably related to driver education and training.

    In the U.S. the only qualification to obtain a license is your ability to fog a mirror.

    • @TigerMuskie "Qualified" is the wrong word... mabe you mean they respect the rules... ok, the German rules have normally a logic sense... in italy you can find suddenly a road sign with 50kmh in the highway without a logir reason... so in this case the people who respect the rules cause accidents...

    • @ihobnstoifn nah my man. You'll find similar situations over here as well. Nearby in Essen on the A40 for example: right before some radar traps there are dynamic led speed limitation signs varying from 60 km/h to 120km/h if I remember correctly. And the reason? Only god may know.
      See this picture:

      You can even see the signs behind the arrows pointing on the traps.

      beh...io vado in Germania una volta al mese e loro ti assicuro vanno fortissimo ma con 2 regole ferree che NESSUNO trasgredisce: tenere la distanza di un buon 20-30 metri e guardare sempre lo specchietto+freccia quando si esce in sorpasso.
      E per sempre intendo SEMPRE, in anni non ho mai visto un Tedesco uscire di colpo in sorpasso senza freccia o starti attaccato dietro a 1 metro dal paraurti...cose da noi comunissime, anzi secondo me molti pensano sia la regola giusta :-D

  • As fast as they were driving, they weren't zooming in and out between other cars, they were signalling, giving people time to get into another lane
    and there was no tailgating.

      trouble is, u depend on other people's brain working as good as yours.
      If someone pulls out behind a truck or a rabbit decides to cross the road in the wrong moment, u might get invited to a parabolic flight and find yourself being beheaded after completion of the landing procedures.
      check this one out:

      u can see his head laying on the road at 2:01 approximately 50 meters away from the crashsite

    • @pull4bon3r u are right. But allways and in any situation you have to prepared for the "stupid" actions of others. On a bike, in a car or somewhere else. Even if u cross the street.... its not sure that all cars brake, that they stop at the line. Thats the same when i am on a bike... if i see a car behind a truck. I mostly slow a bit down and get ready for a break. When an animal crosses the street, u have to prepaired for it...

    • @Gitmo1011 The problem being that at 300km/h (or any speed much above the flow of traffic), even if you see the other idiot before you hit them, you are liable to hit something else or come off the bike as you try to avoid a collision. This is not the government telling you to slow down or they'll fine you, this is thousands of dead bikers per year who thought they were able to ride safely at excessive speed.

  • Driving in Germany is soo fucking nice, people on the highway actually pay attention to what's going on behind them and they'll get out of your way rather quickly.

    • @numark And here you hit the nail on the head. Speed is indeed a problem *if* you crash, but it's not speed itself that causes the crash. Apart from unpredictable/unavoidable accidents, it's usually bad driving, from you or someone else on the road with you. These guys don't tailgate, they always signal their intentions and only drive on the left lane when passing another vehicle.

  • For me it´s very surprising that a video like this has such a big impact on lifelife with more than 1000 comments. Ok, it´s a fast run but quite normal in germany to travel at these speeds. I mean speeds 200-250 kph.
    Since most cars on the autobahn in germany are strong diesel powered audi/mercedes/bmw/vw´s the average speeds are very high. When you drive slower than 220 kph you cannot stay in the left lane for longer than 1-2 minutes because somebody wants to overtake you. just normal. Greet More..

    • @Stevo19835 Well, here in the U.S. we have some states with highway speed limits of 100 kph (60mph), and most are only 112 kph or so (70-75mph). Also, even though the U.S. is one of the richest countries in the world, a lot of people drive fairly crappy vehicles that can't be trusted at higher speeds.

      you should. Consider a Sunday morning when no trucks are around. And if you really have some time take a "autobahn" in the eastern part of Germany. They are relative new and usually not that crowded.

  • The thing is... at these speeds its not just YOUR driving skill and your machine's capabilities. You're also betting that every other driver has sufficient situational awareness, driving skill and machine capability not to do something unexpected. To a car in front of you, you might not even be visible in their rear view mirror yet when they change lanes to pass. Or swerve to avoid debris in the road. At those kinds of speeds your wouldn't even have enough time for your brain to register that t More..
