Golf GTI does 62 miles in 26 minutes

Just came across this video of someone giving their Golf GTI the beans down the German Autobahn. His average speed in the video is around 250km/h and for the most part he does it safely. That turbo must have been running hot.

He signaled every lane change lol, which I guess you would have to do at these kinds of speeds. People like this are the exact reason why we will never have highways with no speed limits in NA.

You wouldn't even be able to drive at these speeds on any of the major highways in North America, the congestion wouldn't allow it. Can only imagine what the fuel economy was like after this sprint.

Using an interstate highway at very early hours in the morning can make that possible, you just have to be on high alert. Many supercar owners do that.

I'm a little curious as to whether or not this is his own personal vehicle or a rental. Hopefully he gave that turbo the adequate time to cool off following this run, because I can imagine it was red hot.
