Default Driving Fast in North Germany

I am working outside of Hamburg for 3 months. I am looking for a place
to rent a car that will allow me to hit 320kph. It's going to be tough
to find such a car but maybe these places exist. I was thinking I
might have to resort to getting a bike...

Either way it will be worth the effort to be in the 200 mph club!

Also, does anyone have any must do things for north Germany?

Try this one:

But you'll have to see which of them is in northern Germany.

AFAIK neither the Kawa (whatever her name) nor the Hayabusa actually
get to 320 kph [anymore]?

You will also need a good stretch of Autobahn on a day with little
traffic, preferrably weekends, because you don't want a lorry coming
at you with 240 kph relatively.

Good medical insurance?


At the speed the OP is intending to drive you don't need that
anymore...better get a life insurance.

Frank

When exactly are you going to do this? I am in Germany for two months this
fall and will be in Northern Germany in a car in late November and early
December. Could you get this Darwin-award-winning stunt out of the way
before mid November, please?

A prepaid funeral?


Or, as Frank Windsor (ex Sgt. Watt from Z-Cars) used to say in his TV
adverts for an Insurance Company, cover to take care of those final
expenses.

I can't believe all the negative response! I have enough b*lls to try
and do something I really want to, and somehow I qualify for the Darwin
awards. I suppose we should give a darwin award to anyone who swims in
the ocean, you know with sharks in it and all. 200 mph is no big deal.
I hit 140 in a station wagon this weekend, 60 more mph is no problem,
especially in a car that is built for such speed. And to anyone who is
worried about being on the road when I am, I am not an idiot and don't
have a deathwish for you or myself.
