Does it have handlebars?


#5933

yet it probably pollutes double as much.


#5934

Should have bought it and flipped it

News at 10:

Volvo stock dives 45% with announcement of 112mph governor.


#5937

honestly 112 is plenty and i would imagine most volvos arent tracked


#5938

You’ve clearly never driven state to state in the southwest.

I do it every year or so. CA -> AZ, and I can easily get going at a good clip (125mph or so, depending on traffic and weather) with no problems at all. The roads are wonderful.

Is that legal? I was not aware there was any no limit places except like 1 place in texas i think(maybe that was just crazy high speedlimit)


#5941

Define “legal”


#5942

Whats the posted speed limit?


#5943

Oh, usually 75 or 80.

Cops don’t care though. I mean, I’ve passed cops doing 110 before and they don’t even blink.


#5944

While it is fun to drive at those speeds (Mississippi to PA in 350z when i was 19) its not needed and 112 is honestly plenty (I am sure if you really wanted you could turn off the gov chip)


#5945

It is nice do do San Diego to Phoenix in 4 hours.

I suppose “not needed” is technically true, but it’s a damn shame. They build cars that can handle more and then gimp them from the factory? hah


#5946

I wouldnt want the average driver doing 80 let alone 112+


#5947


This make you feel better?


#5948

I think that says something about drivers ed or the license test, not the vehicles.

I’ve always been an advocate for raising the bar.


#5949

This is actually pretty much my dream car at the moment lol

So yes.


#5950

I am fine with that maybe with autonomous driving only weird people like me who like to drive will

Had tons of fun driving little economy 4 banger on mountain roads in South NZ island.


#5951

I think we’re at least a decade out from usable autonomous driving. In the mean time, what do we do?

(buy the AMG GT R, of course)
