A forfeiture of assets involved in recklessly dangerous behavior could cut down on this.

A few weeks ago I had a new VW GTI or maybe it was an R flying on the HWY. Seemed like he was going 150 mph. Whew! Then a few exits later I get off the hwy and pull along side the driver. Car had dealer plates on it but this was around 9 pm on a Friday night. Maybe a salesman taking it home. Young guy with eyes that looked HUGE prob from the rush. I was kind of ticked off and was glaring right at him but he wouldn't look over.

I don't see why this made news. Even in my 115 horsepower Jetta, I have done 120mph. A V8 better be able to go faster than my Jetta!

I'm guessing the 911 but the Phaeton might be able to do that as well.

edit: Here's a VW Phaeton doing 167 mph on youtube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3HbEj4bz6Y

Another video on there has the V10 version doing 280 km = 174 mph.

Watch out for deer at that speed. This happened just a few miles from my house.

My Phaeton won't do it. NAR models were limited to 130 mph - the Brembo option was not available.

Hey, my Jeep is a highly sophisticated machine! It's got 1 airbag! At least my face will be saved when the rest of the Jeep crumbles around me into a tin can.

The top of that McLaren or whatever that white car is looks like it's caved in from a rollover.
