I've hit the 250km/h speed limiter on the autobahn in my oil burning Beemer. It feels pretty surreal to be doing that in a dull estate car.
I don't understand - what's a limiter?


(270kmh in a car designed to do that speed is very very quick - and it is fine on the way up and then you have the moment of "If something happens here I'm not coming back from it" and you slowly back off again. I have a car which can crack the 200mph barrier - I'm not sure I fancy doing that on anything other than the VW track or Nardo)

Audi R8 V10, pulls like a train right until 333 and then it just sits there. That's happened twice so it's no coincidence.

IIRC they have a 206mph limiter on them due the limits of the tyres.

Are you sure about that?
Without remembering any rules, in my head using have sounds more correct.

Sorry-I'll shut up now and stop hijacking this thread.
Yes, I'm quite sure.

I wonder how much will this fine/ consequences be in Switzerland?
What a coincidence:
http://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/zuerich/...story/17194943

Zurich Cantonal police arrested 10 speeding suspects. Investigation started late March this year after two speeders where caught on the A51. Police found movies of their misdeeds on mobile phones. Movies were examined and led to the arrest of the other 10 suspects.
