    Its a two door, but considering the speed he passed by he had to be doing 170. I also know it had to be the Autobahn or similar quality road. Honestly Done it myself.
    Quite honestly it looks like a Audi. Most like an R8

    Fast enough that you would not want to try to cross the road in front of him

    I agree about the Autobahn and possibly an Audi, but it could have been a BMW. Now as to the speed, I would have to place my EXPERT opinion at somewhere between 130mph and 150mph.

    But what do I know?

    No idea how fast but I could hear a valve floating, probably a weak valve spring on #3 cylinder.

    They modified the video and sped it up while the car passes.

    If you pause it right at the beginning you can see the front of the car in the guys rear view mirror. Looks like a Audi R8 or a Bugatti Veyron to me. Its still pretty grainy.....

    I would guess a Ferrari and around 180. Haven't a clue really though.

    If there is no hokey things going on with the tape, (which it doesn't appear to have been) the rate of passing is waaaay faster than the subject vehicle.
    If you were to think that the passing car had a speed approximating that of a car on the highway passing by if you were standing still, that would put the overtaking speed at about 60-70 miles an hour. Add that to the subject vehicle of 160 mph, and you have well over 200mph!!

    The guy filming was just under 160Kilometers Per Hour, or about 100 Miles Per Hours.

    I really believe it is a Corvette, most likely a Z06, judging from the noise. Definitely not a Lambo V10 or Ferrari V8. The W16 in a Bugatti Veyron would sound different as well.
