German Driver Takes the Veyron Over 350 km/h on Autobahn [Video]
Reaching an impressive 353 kilometers an hour (just a bit over 219 mph) is a great achievement on public roads, but a dangerous one as well, even in a speed monster like the Veyron. What’s more, he seems to be filming the whole thing with a cellphone in one hand. Is the supercar really that easy to max out?
In our opinion, if you can afford a Veyron, you can afford to rent some track time anywhere you want. Doing something like this on public roads (even the Autobahn), at night, while holding a phone is not a good idea. Traveling at this speed means you are covering 98 meters (320 feet) every second, leaving little time to react or brake in order to avoid a collision.
This Veyron also seems to have been fitted with a set of police lights on the roof of the car, so other motorists would move out of the way. If this excessive speed is legal on some sections of the German motorway, the flashing lights are certainly not. Though it does make for a very interesting video.
