1970 Dodge Challenger Blasts 140 mph on the Autobahn – BITCHEN!

Now this is what I’m talking about! Vintage American iron rolling full tilt down the fastest road on God’s green earth. I don’t know who this guy is but I can safely say that if I got to meet him, I would definitely shake his hand. You see as a die-hard Mopar guy this is something that I’ve wanted to do since forever. My only condition is that I must do it in either my 1968 Charger or the ’69 Daytona. Once done with the autobahn I would then shoot over to the Nürburgring and tear that up as well.

One thing I can tell you just from looking at the video is that this 1970 Challenger is in NO WAY stock. That thing simply accelerates way to hard and is much too stable at speed. My guess is that it’s pushing about 500 + hp and has A LOT of suspension work done to it. If anyone knows anymore about this car or the Dude who owns it, please ping me at Mike@ridelust.com , as I REALLY want to talk to this guy.

    Hmm im skeptical.. I have gone faster than that and ive gone 140 in car and i can honestly say that cars pass a lot faster at 140 than in the video.. The trees and all that just dont add up. the change in passing cars doesnt ad up either from when he is going 80. take a real hard look at that and watch how the scenery doesnt change much when he has that mad rush of speed on the spedometer

    I have had some back and forth correspondence with this guy and he seems easy enough to get hold of via youtube. He has a few aliases he uses on youtube and a few friends in Europe with old Mopars. He used to be in hard rock bands in the Netherlands where he still resides, one of which was called the Kowalskis named after the main character in Vanishing Point, hence the Challenger connection. He has an updated video taken a few weeks ago on the German autobahn using a camera strapped to his head which gives an interesting perspective vs. the mounted camera.
