Thanks for sharing, dylan1357 - I've already watched it six times!

Impressive to see the stability and relatively reasonable wind noise at 170mph (275km/hr) - excellent Engineering and Design by BMW on this one!

With open roof after 100 km/h - care became really really slow...

I've tested 100-200 on my audi TTS 400hp cabrio, like

roof closed 100-200 - 9.5
roof open 100-200 - 11.5

So when you reach 200 km/h with open roof - car became really slow

He had more gas at the end of the run than at the beginning... weird!

Best driving was after the Audi got out of the way and the traffic cleared a bit. Good impression of how “smooth” & stable the car is at speed though.

The cornering at 268kmph is a highlight, just floats along!

The aspect which is really insightful in this video (probably a personal opinion) is when chasing the Audi, the X3MC is letting off the throttle at points because he can see over the Audi and react based on 2/3 cars ahead.

Is there anywhere the autobahn is a 4 lane highway with no speed limit and no traffic? That would be epic racing 4 wide.

The BMW driver driving skill is a joke, confusing on the the gears and the car speed, I could have passed that R8 a long time ago!
