    try fake, fraud or road-apples. they were not passing the streetlights fast enough to be doing 220 mph. the lights by the road looked to be about 50 yards apart. theywould have to pass about two per second, thats 150 feet at 300 feet per second = 204 mph. i think they jiggered the readout. still criminal though doing about 100 mph in traffic at an interchange. btw DJ edit working like a charm. still getting some weirdness when posting original comment.

    Their names will become known when an obituary is printed.
    The law of averages would indicate that sooner or later, this type of behavior will end badly for someone.
    With any luck, it won’t be an innocent victim that pays the price.

    On the other hand, I do admire the capability of fine Italian machinery.
    …. just not on a public highway.

    My self-imposed rule is: To drive at speeds above 110 mph, go to the track.
    (And, depending on conditions, even 110 on a public highway is a little crazy.)

    I don’t think there are all that many Lamborghinis here in the valley of the sun. So if the driver is a local, it shouldn’t take the DPS too long to track him down. Maybe DPS will put the video of his arrest on YouTtube.

    It had to have been cleared with authorities, or they’re just dumber than words will adequately describe. I mean, you have their faces, the car and footage of the speedometer. Slam dunk.

    Sweet ride, though. The fastest I’ve ever done was 150, and I have to agree that this looked doctored to me, because at 150 the center line was a continuous white blur to me, so I can only imagine what it would’ve looked like at 219.

    And no, DPS readers, the 150 wasn’t done here, so forget about it :D

    I used to work on the local rescue squad years ago.

    It was idiots like this that we would have to scrape off the road into a body bag.

    If they wanted to clean out the gene pool, fine, but it always saddened me when they would
    take out another vehicle or two, and seriously injure someone else or terminate a life besides their own.

    I think Rachel Lucas refers to these people as ‘Asshats’. I call them ‘Organ Donors’.

    Folks, I agree with hilljohnny here. There is NO WAY that car reached past 200. White lines and side view of stationary objects did not indicate a speed even near 120 mph in my opinion. Also, the ride remained too smooth for the supposed rate of speed. Tires running at high speed will increase the road imperfections and produce a “shaking” effect that would be visible on the steering and dashboard, none of this was present.

    Any law enforcement LC out there who would be more qualified than I to pass comment on this clip? I’d like to know what a pro thinks although the posted comments seemed very informative, thank you…

    I’m not sure what the fastest speed I’ve ever done in a car is. I pegged the speedometer of a Chevelle SS at 125 and I was still accelerating. It had a 396 and just gulped gas. Just thinking about how much gas it swallowed makes my wallet shake thinking about how much it would cost today.

    My dad liked to buy cars at government auctions and he bought some doozies. I had a 1961 Studebaker Lark he bought, which I think came from Canada because the speedometer had both miles and kilometers. It didn’t go fast but it was economical to run. He bought a Studebaker station wagon that he drove on a 80 mile commute (one way) each day. He also bought a 1966 Plymouth Fury that had a 383 police interceptor engine. It had a 32 gallon gas tank (or at least that’s the most we ever got into it.) That was a fun car to drive too, but I didn’t get to do that very often, mostly it was the Lark, until I got away from home and bought that Chevelle.

    Oh yeah, almost forgot the Crosley I learned to drive on. It was a strange little car and the body was shot. A little while after he got it he was going to turn it into a sort of mini-pickup, sort of like the S10 and Ranger but way before their time. He never turned it into a pickup for some reason but he did take the body completely off of the chassis and I learned to drive sitting on a five-gallon bucket sitting on a sheet of plywood bolted across the chassis. Later on he got a bench seat out of a bus and bolted it to the plywood, sort of an upgrade.

    My thoughts, too, were that they were NOT doing anywhere near 219. However, even if it was only 110, it was stupid and criminal to do that speed on a public highway. The fastest I have ever gone was somewhere around 140, on an AUTOBAHN, where it’s at least legal, if not particularly smart or safe. These boneheads are going to kill someone, or inspire someone else to kill someone.

    back in 68 the local state trooper was out on the front porch having a beer with my father and said his new patrolcar could outrun anything on the road ( new dodge 440 ). dad bet him a case i could beat him in my delta 88 so i met him out on the interstate at midnight with some other troopers for a race. his dodge had a top end of 135, i was clocked at 175. very exciting and yes the white dashes look like a solid line at that speed.

    Almost guaranteed the cops were in on this.

    I remember a similar set of runs, also in a Lamborghini, in the late 1980s, on the nearly-deserted strip of I-95 north of Orono, Maine, to Houlton. It was typically cop in one seat, driver in the other, and then pull over, turn around, and switch for the run back.

    Mind you, the cops had cars at both ends of the runs, and were using it for high-speed pursuit training. . .but they were STILL speed runs.

    And I’ll admit, 173 MPH in a Lamborghini Countach OWNED as an experience. . .

    Even if the cops were in on this (seems like it was pretty light traffic, even for night time - unless it was 3 a.m. or so….), I agree with several of the others: you want to pull idiotic stunts like this, take it to the track!

    I’m not a wet blanket; I am very much a “point A” - “point B”… GET THE HECK OUTTA MY WAY!!! type driver, but I don’t bob and weave, and I keep it under 85 (fudging, just in case I did go faster than I thought ;-) ), and do that only on interstates in lighter traffic that’s not going too much slower than I…

    Now, I know that high performance cars are a BLAST: I drove my daddy’s Porche 911-S many times (many, many years ago)… Not quite the same thing as this car, but a similar idea… And responsibility and self-control are pretty much a requirement to drive these things safely.

    I beg to differ with you sir, new lambo and ferrari’s dont have conventional shifters on the floor they have formula one style ” paddle shifters” located behind the sterring wheel, which during the second run you can see the driver use, put there so you don’t have to remove your hands from the steering wheel while shifting. Lot’s safer that way.

    I roadrace motorcycles (Drag A Knee - get it?). I’m talking about sanctioned closed course competition. What these bozos are doing goes beyond insane. I’ve worked track safety at car events and - if it all goes wrong - the kinetic energy released at 80mph is absolutely unbelievable. At those speeds, only very small pieces would have remained.

    Agree with all the comments above about their actual terminal velocity. Speedometers are horribly inaccurate and the degree of inaccuracy increases with speed. No, they did not actually reach 219. So what? Still completely insane.

    And unnecessary, track days aren’t all that expensive. If you can afford that car, you can certainly afford to take it to the track. Besides, pressing your foot to the floor is NOT driver skill.

    I have a lot more fun trying to take a 60mph turn at 61 - now that’s entertainment!

    Salfter you got it 371 c.i., 350 hp. one strange thing was the mpg. 10 mpg in town at 45mph or less, 12mpg at 60mph, running the interstate at 100mph or better 20 mpg. drove a friend to chicago once, 450 miles, 4 hours, 20 gallons of regular leaded. of course gas was about 25 cents back then and i was young and stupid.

    When writing young people tickets for speeding I usually warned them, “You are nothing but a big, soft, pink, gut-filled projectile and I don’t carry a squeegee so slow your ass down.”

    219 mph is 321 feet per second. That car was not going any where near that fast. I’d say a buck and a quarter.

    Ohio Right wing nut, Thanks for the correction - I did not know that these auto did not have manuals available anymore. The rest of this comment is not aimed at you, sir, I assume your post was meant to enlighten, not sneer, and I take it in that spirit.

    However, I’ll now assume snark mode:

    When I win the lottery I will be sure to not bother to shop for those manu’s/models . I like to DRIVE, not ride, and if you can’t drop from 5th or 6th to 3rd or 4th on a tight curve or sudden downgrade in one action - it’s an automatic transmission, made for pussies, AFAIAK. So I’ll never drive formula 1 - I’ll live with the disappointment.

    I know all the arguments about the supposed superiority of automatics, they make lots of sense if you want to go reeeeel fast in a straight line. whoopee.

    If you have a car that can go 200 MPH, and you can’t shift while holding on to the wheel, maybe you shouldn’t be doing 200 MPH in the first place.

    Like I said, what a waste.

    Make mine a manual.

    When still young, dumb and full of it (and no, longer ago than last week), I got my Roadrunner up to 115 mph…on bias ply tires and a nearly-shot suspension. Best I’ve done. The Chevy never gets past 70 mph, and that would be driving late at night, so no traffic.

    I agree with the majority opinion here that this was a an act of pure idiocy. The casual manner in which the subjects seem to treat speed is off-putting, especially in an area where they may have been only one random coyote away from seeing what, if anything, lies beyond the gates of death.

    I’m no expert on anything, but regarding the legitimacy of this: I think it may well be the real deal. Some have brought up the appearance of the white lines, but I think one needs to remember that there is a substantial difference in the way rapid movement is perceived by the human eye versus a video camera. The lights on a modern Lamborghini are probably exceedingly bright and have a long throw. Given that, they would probably emit enough illumination to make the automatic exposure system on the camera default to higher shutter speeds when pointed at the bright stripes and lines.

    The higher the shutter speed, the more defined the lane markings would look at high speed; just like if you were to look at a helicopter flying over, you would see the rotors as a continuous blur, but if you shot the chopper with a video camera at a shutter speed north of, say, 90fps (versus the typical setting of 60), you could make out individual blades. To fully convey a sense of how fast they were probably going, these young solipsistic sociopaths should have kept the camera’s shutter at or below 60fps. 30 would have been ideal.

    Also, the transmission in the car is NOT an automatic in a typical sense. It’s essentially an electro-hydraulic sequential manual setup. Some CAN be driven in automatic mode, but the main purpose behind such a strange tranny is allow for faster shifting while also keeping both hands on the wheel. At best, it can be described as “semi-automatic.”

    Of course, one might ask: why does a driver in a road car need to shift so fast, anyway? That, I do not know; but then, exotic sports cars have never really been about logic. Or have they been? Now that I think about it, one of the reasons some people actually buy cars like these is to attract or impress mates, possibly so as to make more people. Kind of logical on the surface… Until one starts to contemplate the impact on society of the offspring of solipsists and gold-diggers…

    Of course, one might ask: why does a driver in a road car need to shift so fast, anyway?

    The whole thing with the paddle shifter transmissions came from Formula One, where shifting speeds of that nature are needed.

    In a street car, it is all about the “I’m a Racer!” thing.

    Idiots, in other words. (Besides, a lot of the idiots that but these cars couldn’t work a clutch it their lives depended on it. I put too many of them in Ferrari 308s in the 80’s. And you should have heard the screaming at the bill!)

    If anyone wants, I will give an overview of the process. Suffice it to say that NOTHING in the Dino series was easy to do anything on. (With the exception of the cheeseball reach adjustment on the driver’s seat. That wasn’t TOO bad…)

    I watched that video with horror, praying no car turned up in front of them. But too, the lights didn’t pass fast enough, nor did the freeway signs seem to be receding at the same speed. The car seemd to be traveling faster from the outside than inside. I have never been in a car traveling over a hundred and fifty. We could have but backed off, a ‘71 Mercury CHP 429 interceptor, rated at four-sixty horsepower. That was quite enough, on a two lane country road outside of Fresno at three in the morning. Yes, the lines like dots and the phone poles about one per second…..I am mellow now, for the most part stay to the right, letting traffic pass. But no major speeding, even in Spunky, my turbo cruiser, the fastest 110, rated at 140. I’ll stick with seventy. In closing, that asshole should have his license permanently revoked.

    I never did like Italian sports cars, I find Ferrari and Lamborghini are tacky looking. They’re so “look at me”, it’s embarrassing.

    I shouldn’t complain about these guys, I had my friend’s tricked-out Hyabusa going 305 km/h on the 401 2 summers ago. I should be dead. The noise from the wind hurt my ears for hours, and I think it took a whole km to slow down to 100 km/h. Thank you, radar detector/laser jammer, btw. Disgusting how fast that bike was, how irresponsible I was (despite it being 4am), and how much my life insurance would cost if anyone found out. Scary thing was, the bike had a bit of stank left in 6th gear, and it was stable. You really kind of ignore the road ahead and concentrate on the horizon instead…must be a noob habit. I’ll leave that speed alone forever as the fastest I’ll ever go unless it’s on a video game from now on.
    In a car, the fastest I ever went was 216 km/h in a ‘86 Mercury Cougar.

    Edit: 305 km/h: 183 mph. 216 km/h: 130 mph (both approx)

    The fastest I’ve ever done was 150, and I have to agree that this looked doctored to me, because at 150 the center line was a continuous white blur to me, so I can only imagine what it would’ve looked like at 219.

    The fact that it’s even possible to doctor it means no court will be able to convict him. Honestly, you could reel in thousands a day in fines if we just hire one police cruiser to each uber-fast penis-mobile and bust them for doing what these cars were meant to do (other than look tacky/pretty).
    I used to tsk tsk my friends when I was a kid with their Lamborghini Countach posters…I was in love with the Porsche 959 myself (did the same thing with 1/2 the cylinders and looked much better). I was also in love with Daisy Duke, but things change. One I can’t afford and is outdated, and well….ditto.

    notwithstanding all that has been said, i thought i saw a ROAD CLOSED sign on the green freeway sign near the beginning of the clip. yes there were people coming in the opposite direction, but perhaps HIS side was clear. my personal best is 127 in my 1987 RX-7, on Highway 5 near where Caveman lives!

    I agree with many of the commentors. The speed does not look right. I have zipped across Arizona HWY’s on a MC at 140 to 150 MPH and it looked about the same as this.

    A lot of long, straight road there, Sir Christopher…..I drive under it twice a day. I call it the return to sanity, separating me from the coastal crazies. Along with the California aqueduct, a quarter mile further, what I call the moat for similar reasons.

    My old Firebird (’86) had a top speed of “M”.

    Because at that point the needle wouldn’t go around anymore.

    It had to have been at least 120 MPH.

    I’m not sure about the speed they were going myself, but then if/when I go over 100 I’m not taking into consideration the overall effect of the speed. Nothing personal towards those who have, I just don’t like to go into triple digit range unless I am clear minded and able to focus 100% on driving.
    Everything has to be considered.

    Time of day, not just for traffic, but for animals (even a small animal like a squirrel can be death at high speeds).

    Side roads and other forms of entry to the road you are on.

    Weather conditions and weather condtions within the past 24 to 48 hours (why? because that straight road you drive on might just have some additional debris on it from rain washing the collected dirt off the road and into a depression in it)

    and, of course the road itself.

    Only in some parts of West Virginia and Utah have I seen stretches of interstate where I’d even think of going over 100.

    200mph on any road in the US is asking for a lot of trouble. Some states are better than others, but the methods used simply don’t leave quality.

    For all their lunacy, I do have to give them points for using a car that is MADE for that kind of stuff. Not some riced out Honda with V rated tires.

    Folks, just as a bit of “useless information” I own a 2005 Mitsubishi Galant V6 3.8L - 24 valves, 230 hp 250 ft/lbs of torque automobile. It eats Mustangs 4.6L V8 for breakfast without breaking into a sweat. No speedometer restrictions either. And it will bury its needle at 220 kph effortlessly. And the acceleration from deadstop to full speed is unbroken and breathtaking. And the sound of that thing under full acceleration is enough to plaster a smile on my face for a long, long time. However, rest assured that I DO NOT drive at full power all the time. It is very rare that I will extract the full power of that car, during passing for instance, or to clear a long line of slow moving trucks on the hwy while some asshole is trying to get into my trunk with a Cobalt or Civic… You should see the looks I get when I pull back in the right lane and slow down to normal hwy speed!!! Hard to believe a four-door sedan can accelerate like that!

    Not bad for a V-6!!!

    OH, and speed is defined as flying at 41500 feet with a 1150 KIAS to perform an intercept on a fast moving bogey… (mind you, we were some happy to see that tanker on the return trip!).

    Hardclimber speed is a perception. riding a motorcycle at 45 mph on a twisty country road is “faster” than 70mph in a minivan on the interstate. a hangglider doing 20mph five feet off the ground is a lot more exciting than a gooneybird doing 120 knots at 15,000 feet. i have done each of these, i only wish i had the skills to ride your ‘6′.

    Interesting facts in this thread, as is usual with The Smartest Readers in the Blogosphere™. :em69:

    A special thanks to alert reader Snerg Balerg (and a big WELCOME TO THE ROTT!) for the info on shutter speeds at night. Now that you mention it (particularly when you mentioned the example with whirly birds which made a large light bulb come on right over my head), the absence of “blur” isn’t at all conclusive.

    What remains is the speed that streetlights pass by with, because shutter speed doesn’t affect that. But I’d have to time it with a stopwatch to check.

    does the lamborghini have a control computer? i read somewhere the newer car control computers have gps chips and the police can download where you’ve been and how fast you were going. the article i read was about an accident where one driver tagged for driving too fast and causing the accident based on the computer readout.

    Don’t know about Lamborghini, but in American cars there’s no GPS, but there is a computer that keeps track of speed and such for a certain amount of time.

    If you screw up and wreck your vehicle, the insurance company can download this info and use it to deny your claim.

    i have done each of these, i only wish i had the skills to ride your ‘6′.

    You might be too hard on yourself my friend. Putting oneself on someone’s six isn’t as difficult as one might think, it’s staying there to acquire a lock/firing angle that becomes “interesting”… And there is a lot of gun camera footage that shows an opposing bird riding just at the edge of the crosshairs and damn if the pilot was able to bring it to bear to call the shot, proving how difficult it is even for an experienced combat pilot. Here’s an example: He’s on your tail, 3000 ft behind, caught you at the end of your climbing left turn just as you were levelling off and you just got a quick “dreeeeb” in your earphones indicating a radar looking for lock… and the fun starts!

    Hard right, increase speed but not to full power yet, nose up, twist left, cut speed, hard left, nose down, increase speed, nose level, hard left again, straighten out, pull hard right, pull straight up at max power, hard right rudder, hard right aileron, cut speed, allow the aircraft to side-slip briefly, maintain right turn as your control surfaces regain authority, (shit, pulling 6 gs here) crane your neck to see if he’s still riding your smoke as soon as you’ve reduced your g pull, no, good, you didn’t give him a shot and lost him, level off briefly, twist and roll and look around for him, find him, get on his six, and start all over again! After three “air combat training” sorties, we had to have help from the ground crew to pour ourselves out of the cockpit, literally. You not tired, you’re SPENT. You could always tell how tired your opponent was just by the way he manoeuvered his bird during the “engagement”. Pulling too many g’s too early by pushing too hard will guarantee the victory will eventually go to your opponent, and we don’t like that very much… However, easier said than done…

    Didn’t want to bother you with my stories, but how I enjoyed flying!!!

    Two jobs ago, I worked in ‘Zona a lot (traveled extensively) and I drove that road fairly often. I agree that, if that’s 219mph, then I’m the Easter Bunny.

    Fastest I ever went was 140 in - believe it or not - a turbo diesel Mercedes with a few modifications to the turbo, injectors, and exhaust. Slow off the line, but would blow the doors off anything once I got it wound up. Still did 24 mpg, also.

    OK, my high speed story, which also happened in Arizona.
    Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket” alt=”" /> Mine had a white stripe…way cooler.

    I had a ‘76 Tr-7, which with proper attention was a really decent car. I could go from the coast of L.A. to ASU (on the far side of Phoenix in Tempe) on one tank of gas in 3 hr 55 min, and this was back when Interstate 10 ended 20 miles before you got to Phoenix and you had to take back roads the rest of the way.

    I went out into the middle of nowhere, which wasn’t the hard to find “way back then”, and just stood on the accelerator. She got up to 110, then no more. The tach said I had RPMs left, but uphill, downhill, level…no more.

    Damn thing had a governor, and that was probably a good thing. I couldn’t believe how fast things appeared in front of me. Doing that once made me appreciate speed, and over the years. I’ve drawn on how fast things were happening and now I’m a get there early guy in my commutes. Maybe I can handle the speed to get there on time, but what is essentially overtaking a hidden brick wall at 55 mph settled me down.

    Azygos

    You did mean velocity not speed, correct

    Regarding air combat training you mean speed as “Corner velocity” which is the turn rate and turn radius most desired during combat?

    For our non-flying LCs, speed and velocity are both the same thing, but in combat flying, as mentionned in post # 55, several manoeuvers are described, such as Lift Vector , Vertical Turns (nose up with right/left turns which are really a form of loop) and Corner Velocity, which is the ideal turn rate and turn radius for your particular aircraft (some aircraft can have a CV of 325 knots, others as high as 500 knots). It is just not a matter on getting on your opponent’s six, but also to obtain a position where you put your nose in a “kill” position.

    In my post, I tried to cover all the manoeuvers, as good Azygos was able to distinguish.
    Thank you for your patience with my explanations, I try to keep them simple, don’t know if I manage though!

    Oh, and Folks,

    I didn’t want to go into a lenghty explanation either, but in a “turning fight” those described at #63 work very well! With some practice, they become second nature, and when matched to basic aerobatics and techniques (himmelman, scissor, split S, yo-yo, snap roll, barrel roll, loop, unloaded reversal etc…) they become your life line.

    Good hunting!

    aclpoo - The busa, like all big-bore bikes these days, is electronically restricted to 300kph (186mph). The difference between bikes and cars (one of many) is that it actually will reach that speed. But no matter how long you kept the grip twisted, it wasn’t going to go any faster.

    My lovely Missus’ biggest complaint is that the Galant only does 35 mpg hwy and 22 mpg city.

    I live in Phoenix, and the stretch of road looked like the North/South part that runs through Scottsdale. That’s a popular road for speeding. They have speed cameras along that stretch now, but I’ve heard of people going so fast, the cameras couldn’t catch their pictures! The worst wreak I’ve ever seen was on that road, but it was caused by an old fart who stopped in the right lane for some stupid reason, and caused a multiple care/truck pileup that resulted in an SUV flying OVER a truck (hit a small car which stopped behind the truck) catching on fire, and burning the occupants of the SUV to death. (We passed as they were burning, firefighters were trying to put out the flames) The cab of the truck was also on fire, but the driver got out in time. The old man was standing in the road watching in horror, I’ll never forget the look on his face. I didn’t find out until I watched the news that evening that he caused the whole thing. It was a very sad thing to see. A family of four was in the SUV.

    Thanks for the welcome message.

    Regarding speed: I can’t remember ever having driven over about 105mph, myself — and in a turbo-diesel BMW… Took a while to get to that speed. Once I was there, I realised that I did not not have anything resembling the skill/training to stay there for very long, especially on a two-lane country road. Don’t think I ever did more than two or three times…

    Funny… I tried getting on that “205mph.com” website, but I can’t. Maybe they got rounded up already..?
