Germany: 417 Kilometers on the Unlimited Speed Highway

The Autobahn in Germany is one of the few places in the world where you can actually legally test the top speed of your car. However, in November last year, the owner of a Bugatti Chiron drove at a speed of 414 kilometers per hour on the unlimited speed highway in Germany.

After the video was put on the Internet, it was criticized. The German Ministry of Transport publicly condemned Radim Passer‘s behavior. The German Ministry of Transport pointed out that “there are no speed limits on some highways, which does not mean that car owners can do whatever they want.” And cites Article 1 of the German Road Traffic Act “Anyone involved in traffic must act in a way that does not harm others”.

Saxony-Anhalt police in Germany said the file had been handed over to prosecutors by Radim Passer, who could face up to two years in prison, according to foreign media reports.

Radim Passer said he knew safety was the most important consideration, so he conducted the test when it was safe to do so. It’s not the first time that Radim Passer has challenged the speed realm of supercars in this way. In 2015, he also drove a Bugatti Veyron to a speed of 250 miles per hour (about 400 kilometers per hour).

This incident has also reignited discussions in Germany about whether the speed limit should be limited on the highway. The German Green Party proposed a limit of 81 miles (about 130 kilometers) on the maximum speed limit of the highway in the election last year, which can reduce carbon emissions. Not implemented.
