Then you can brag about going 140 on the freeway. Abuse of immunity/power. 140 on the freeway is dangerous

that's messed up if they really have immunity.  guy should at the very least get his license suspended.

I do think the caliber of the car should figure in to speed limits, ideally. I can cruise along safely at 100, where someone driving a salt truck or Prius should maybe keep it under 45 or so.

but 140mph?  at that point we are getting into human response time.

 

I can get the pre-crime nature of speed limits but when pedestrians or other drivers can get killed it's kind of necessary.

Steve Dinan told a pretty funny story on an Adam Corolla podcast some years ago.

“I’m not saying I was doing 165 Miles an hour in my 535 down the grapevine this morning to get to this interview. But if I was doing 165 Miles in my 535 down the grapevine, I was getting 31 Miles to the gallon doing it. “

that doesn't seem realistic.  MPG should get much worse once you start going above 50-60mph in most cars from what I've experienced.

Dinan builds stealth race cars for BMW douchebags. It’s the only aftermarket company that doesn’t void your warranty. His cars are drivers that smoke M cars, for less money than an M car. The stock combined mileage is around 23, so his claim does not seem outrageous.

Yeah, 140 would not really be safe in too many places up here. No idea about Arizona.
