That's the good thing living in Germany ... no speed limit on the Autobahn.
My uncle took me on a trip once and went 175 mph with his tuned Audi A8. It's crazy fast, but it really depends on the chassis frame whether it feels dangerous or not.

I've hit 110 to 115 a couple of times in a Honda Accord and it felt very safe. car rode like a charm.

Guy who used to live in my old apt complex had like a 74 Porsche 911 and took me for a spin and hit about 145. I didnt even notice we were going that fast until I looked at the speedometer. amazing car.

buddy of mine just bought a 2001 911. hope to get at it for a test drive.

I've hit 125 before driving to back from New Jersey to Illinois. It's nothing I'm proud of though. Sometimes its fun, but most times I just consider myself an idiot.

I wasn't driving, but I was in the front seat while my friend hit 145 in his STI. We decided it was time to slow down, but according to the manual it can reach speeds in excess of 157.

I went to Austria last week for a ski trip, and we went through Germany and on the Autobahn, we were in a coach and because we had a trailor on the back we were limited to only 85 km/h. Alot of people play it safe an stay on the outside an play it safe. And the ones who decide to take advantage end up whizzing past at ridiculous speeds.

Had a Camaro SS that I would hit 150 basically nightly for a few months on this one stretch of the Lodge in Detroit. Its pretty amazing that I didn't get a ticket or killed doing that foolishness.

you want scary, I've been a passenger in a P.O.S. 1991 Dodge Caravan going 110 mph with one of the worst drivers I know. The back end felt like it was rumbling so much that it would just break apart. Almost **** my pants,

Fastest I've gone while driving is somewhere 180-190 km/h (110-118mph), we've got lots of new four lane highway in NB that is in the middle of nowhere so the police won't be seen for hours. The only trouble is all the hills and curves - good fun, but hard to get a good speed going sometimes.

the "no speed limit" thing in Germany might come to and end soon, though. Government wants to impose an speed limit at 130 km/h (80mph) to reduce CO2 emissions and counter global warming

No, hers. Its like a cramped up 5 seater like Civic sized, can't remember the model.

We had about 7 or 8 people in it and were going 120 mph at night. I had just turned 16, so I wasn't driving at all at the time.

Why the banghead? It's a step into the right direction, and I'M glad that OUR government is doing sth. against the CO2- emissions.

still, with no speed limit the Autobahn is GREAT.
