In a taxi, with 7 other people, the taxi driver in Germany (where there was no speed limit) was traveling 101 mph.

In a taxi, with 7 other people, the taxi driver in Italy (where the speed limit was 150 kph) the taxi driver in Italy was doing 110 mph (about 17 over).

Moreover, it was an extra thrill in Italy because the cabby hit the curb coming out the hotel pretty hard so you were just waiting for the "BOOM!" and ensuing skid, crash-bang!

I think there is some confusion about the German autobahn. The autobahn is not a single road but about half of all their highways. If a speed limit is not posted, there's not really a legal speed limit other than maintaining control.

See above post.

In reality, it appears just like 94/96/696/ in the morning. Most people tote along about 80-85 and then you have a few that go by at about a buck and some change...

Like cornfed, yes, driven the open stretches many times. I've generally had every crappy rental car up to 120mph at least. Have also done the Nurburgring as well, at 160mph.

This is what I got to drive in Germany:



Renault Laguna diesel with a 6 speed. Limited to 130mph. Drove from Frankfort to Mulheim, then did a trip to Munich with a couple of the guys from work at the end of the month. I was there for most of the month, they came in on the last few days.

Drove on the autobahn in an ice storm this past winter. Sucks just as much as it does here. A 30 car pile up happened just behind me outside Munich. In the summer we hit about 155 in my friends BMW.
