Random Thoughts From An Autobahn.

  • Cars shouldn't be electronically limited in Germany. Or if they are, it should be at 400km/h. I swear I could have gotten my economy hatch to at least 320km/h, if I'd turned the air con off.
  • Germany has far too many trucks. But they are the most polite trucks in the world. In China, they'd all be sitting in the fast lanes, choking the fun out of the place.
  • Roadtrips are always fun, even alone. Possibly, this relates to the fact that I haven't really driven a car consistently in 2 years, or owned one in 7. But having just done a roadtrip with friends, other people being involved is probably better...even if it limits your ability to talk to yourself, or sing at the top of your lungs.
  • Germany has five 90s trance/dance stations for every other kind of radio stations: talk, easy listening, hits of today etc. I suspect there could be a cultural link between a nation that embraces no speed limit driving and high energy music. Made me feel like I was back at Elevation @ Home Bar, except I was piloting a Renault.
  • "The fastest car in the world is a hire car" -paraphrasing Adam Charles.
I love driving around this neck of the woods, because there are cars being tested. Check out the shots below...could I have snapped the new Porsche supercar, that will sit between the 911 and the 918 (this is a real car concept that is in production...I just might have seen it).? I also saw a boring Mercedes hatch being tested.
