    Doesn't look like 150 to me by the passing speeds.

            You made me click the video again. It says MPH. So just cruising past semis at 100 means they do 80.

                I think it's authentic. When stationed in Germany in the mid 70s, I owned a BMW 3.0S. 3-litre 6-cylinder aluminum engine, with a 4-speed. The faster that car went, the smoother and quieter it got. Loved it.

                  I Served in Germany in 83-84 in Offenbach. I owned a 76 Ford Capri GT II with a v6 4 spd that would hold easy at 210kph. That car was a blast to drive and race. Raced an Alfa Romeo in Frankfurt near the 5th Corp. PX once. I can still hear the sound of our cars echoing off the tall buildings as we went from stoplight to stoplight.

                    I think 120-130 MPH would look more frantic than those videos. If nothing else does it really look like they are dumping over 50 MPH when traffic gets in the way?

                      I've seen 150 mph through Red's windshield but that was on the airport runway and that thing is so huge with such huge long stripes, it's hard to judge speed. The best way to judge speed from a video standpoint is, how fast is the big stuff in the background/distance moving? And are the clouds passing overhead, like flying on an airplane?

                      It didn't look to me like that was 150 mph in that video. But I didn't go 150 on the highway, either.
