Living in the US, German Autobahn is more than just the boring highway for car enthusiasts. American car lovers dream about being able to drive top speed on the Autobahn in the expensive car every time they cruise one of the US’s boring, the speed limited highways.
Although not all of us will get a chance to go flat out on the Autobahn, American comedian Conan O’Brien gave us all the taste of what it would be like.
O’Brien meets up with the German rally driver who brings the new BMW i8 with him. The i8 is the pretty good choice for some Autobahn blasting. O’Brien sits shotgun for the first run to get the feel for how the Autobahn works.
For the American who is used to crappy drivers and useless speed limits, the polite and efficient world of the German Autobahn can be the bit disorienting.
When O’Brien first gets the shot behind the wheel, he goes so slowly that even trucks overtake him. Finally, he puts the pedal to a metal and gets up to the impressive speed of 250kph (about 155 mph).
Of course, like someone who isn’t used to that sort of speed, Conan O’Brien basically screams the entire time. The whole thing is hilarious to watch, just proves how funny Conan O’Brien can be.
