Geek - It’s not every day you get to hit the speed limiter in a 2013 Mercedes SL 550, so we gave someone brave enough to do it on an open highway Google Glass to show everyone what it is like.
What an irresponsible moron.
....that's not very fast.... :/
You have to look at the cars he pass by that are probably doing 60/70 to get the sense of speed
Um, 158 mph is twice the maximum speed allowable in Canada. 158mph is 254kph, or 71 meters per second, thats like travelling 20 stories every second.
I really wish he would have been pulled over and charged $400
He would have been arrested for going that speed, depending on the state, going 25 over is considered reckless and you can be arrested. Going 100 over will definitely get your license revoked, lol.
After 105 they take a pair of scissors and cut your licence in half. Instant 11 points
If the police decide to follow up on it and add up the clues, they may arrest the guy like this fool http://autos.yahoo.com/blog...
Dam that car is a beast, I demand zoom blur for Google glasses. Lol shame it's an automatic with a turbo. That transmission is probably messed up now.
lambos are automatic :/
Why would you say that? Most supercars and GTs these days have dual clutch transmissions, which essentially is more efficient automatic transmission, even though the set up is completely different. Hmmm I think the guy doesn't know his cars either. It's an SL55 AMG, not SL-550 :/
honestly after driving peoples cars with all the fancy stuff, the feeling isnt there. when your clapping the shifter in and releasing the clutch is more thrill than letting some autmatic transmission take over. Driving wise its way more fun.
Sadly that's the way the car industry is going because of the improved performance and savings on gas.
Expect to see more posts from a lot out there with their wild and unruly exploits using Google glass.. ..and some from others exposing these sort of behaviours.
Im expecting a new wave of self incrimination incoming.
I checked it ou, he was going fast but not that fast. His dash was in kilometers per hour. Dont be fooled.
Kidding, he was going that fast, the passenger is trying to play cool but is totally crapping his pants. Listen to his voice. What an f'ing jerk, why would you do this on a public road and video tape it? He is going to get arrested for this. Not if, but when. This thing is all over the internet now. Why not do it on a racetrack? Instead he puts the passenger in exteme danger.
