Here’s A Subaru BRZ Doing 147 MPH

The Subaru BRZ was built for driving pleasure, not high-speed statistics. It's still interesting to watch one reach a top speed of 147 MPH. But was this run illegal?


The video's uploader Speedracer38 states that the run was performed on the Autobahn, which everyone knows is unrestricted in many places. Speedracer38's only other video that references the German highway is clearly in the US, and the description states, "we were driving on the autobahn in Europe..... ;)".


One day before Speedracer38 uploaded his video, another YouTube video showed a BRZ hitting roughly the same speeds (235 kph or 146 mph) while showing a bit of the road. That run clearly was shot on the Autobahn, but as for the one made by Speedracer38? We're more than a little skeptical.

That beeping noise sounds exactly like my V1 radar detector when it's picking up K band (not cops). Autobahn my ass. Fairly sure you wouldn't need a V1 on a road with no speed limits.

Also... is it just me, or does it seem to take forever to get to top speed?
