Came across this video and the only words that come to mind is 'ludicrous speed'! (any 'Spaceballs' fans?:D) Just thought I'd share.

I smell a rat. Who in the hell drives around with a video camera hanging out the window waiting on a Z06 to go blowing by? I think this was all staged and that the two cars shown were on it and travelling at an extremely slow speed for shock effect. You can tell by how quickly the white lines are flashing by that the driver picks up speed considerably to get up to 55 after he passes the other car.

He's going 150 kmh (~93 mph) when he pans down to the speedo, not 55 mph. I'm sure that the guy knew the guy with the Z06 and that he was going to go for a top speed run. Perhaps he was also being a lookout to ensure that the road was clear.

This was determined to be a staged shoot.

Sure it was staged, but how much can that really alter the effect? That was a massive blowby by any standard. What driving skill that must take!

I wonder if that was the same tool that cut me off last night on the 101, before cutting another driver off by an inch to get back in the lane. I was so impressed. :rolleyes:
