For those of you who also want to hear about driving on the autobahn, continue reading here …
A new first
I did have a new experience today. No, not the speed - I’ve been there before. But changing down a gear, when already doing an indicated 200 kph, in order to overtake a "slow-moving" car. That was a first. (For your techies like Nicholls: from 200 kph in 6th gear, the Elise just gains momentum rather than accelerates. Change down and it lands smack in the power band (6,500-8,500 rpm) of 5th gear, so it accelerates quite well.
The madness of the autobahn
While we're on the question of Audi's, this is a question for Kenny to put to Nicholls. See the photo. Note the V12 badge. V10 Audi, yes, but V12???? BTW, it was very fast on the autobahn.
PS: Note to Tim Noel, although Tim is likely to be snoring by this point in the motorhead drivel. Tim, see the food bag. Still giving sterling service at coffee break and lunch.
