BUNGEE JUMPING? nooooooowayyyy ,not after what happened to that girl in australia the other week,ouch
It didn't happen in Australia, she was an Australian, happened overseas in Asia, border of cambodia or something...
Guys I am sorry for flying off the handle a bit earlier, but I am just sick of knockers who weren't there and don't know the whole situation, my background/experiences/ PROFESSION/ expertise, road conditions (at the exact time I was talking about)... Then people start making up things about drivers pulling out infront or how their own car is too "shakey or unstable" to even do half the speed my GT reached, just because your car is unstable does not mean that all other GT's are. Having said that who even knows how accurate the speedos are when the needle passes 200kph, for all I know 220kph could in reality be 180kph???
Also if you can't do these speeds on some of the safest roads in the world (where you can do it legally) where else is safer? Yes a million things could go wrong like a blown tyre or a suicidal deer flying through your front windscreen, but the end result of this at 240kph or at 140kph is basically going to end the same. More people die in car accidents under 80kph than over 80kph, you run the risk every day when ever you go onto the road at any speed or even as a pedestrian.
I agree the only silly thing could have been the photo, but in my defense just like most of us, I can pull out my phone and take a photo without even having to look at the phone at all. Car was stable as you can see from the pic, it isn't blured at all considering the light was quite dark inside the cabin, if it was bumpy the photo would be blured right????
I simply started this thread as it is interesting and i'm sure a lot of car enthusiasts would have given some of the German Tracks and Autobahns a run for top speed, seeing how you guys are merely a few hours away from these roads...
PS: I'm not Austrian, I simply live here and have done so for 8 months now... If I didn't drive to road conditions and to the ability of my cars, I would have fallen off the side of a mountain by now... Mountain driving with ice on the road is far more risky at 10kph than 200+ on a perfect stretch of German Autobahn, clearly speeding is irrelevant and whoever blindly drives at speed limits thinking they are being safe is counting the days before they are caught out (probably 98% of the population).
Once again I appologise for my posts earlier. With this merely being the internet, I should not take ill informed replies too seriously, infact I should have expected replies like this and simply should have laughed it off.
Now Back on topic, How fast has your Alfa gone....
