Not to speak that if you were to drive 180kmh you would break any law and the noise inside your car would be nothing to neglect(bye bye hifi).

There is generally no speed limit on any autobahn in germany and even when there is, it is usually 120 but everybody is doing 140. This greatly helps the traffic without any serious problems caused by speed. You feel it especially when you cross the border into germany from france, belgium, nl... the german autobahns look empty in comparison to those highways in the other countries.

and you haven't even compared the fuel consumption between german and american cars

How about this: 150HP, 320Nm @1900 RPM out of a 1.9/4cyl @ 5.6L/100Km average, max 215Km/H standard(not tuned) engine?
It is also interesting what the german and jap engineers are saying about the us engines/gearbox/electronic system(the engineers that have worked for some us car makers in one way or another). For me, it's enough the very fact that I know of no real engine/gearbox innovation coming from us car makers.

You have to understand what is going on over there... Research for better engines costs a lot of money while the fuel costs a third of the price here. It is actually cheaper to spy than research most of the times.

What's this motor?
VAG's TDI?


edit: in fact, it looks more like a BMW 320dA, but not 100% close to the specs
