Achievement unlocked: we maxed out our Mercedes-Benz E250 rental car on the Autobahn in Germany. No, I have no idea why it has winter tires on it in August.
Video when I get home, but here’s a quick photo for now of actually being out on the Nürburgring! I got rides in three very different cars. I didn’t drive though as it costs a fortune to get a rental that is allowed on the Ring.
I finally had a chance to see the infamous Nürburgring race track yesterday! Historic races were going on with many cool old cars.
I should be getting some rides around it tomorrow!
The very first Porsche 911 Turbo, located at the Porsche museum in Germany.
I’m in southern Germany for two weeks to see car museums and to visit the amazing Nürburgring race track. I’m camping and driving with a bunch of Europeans who are members of a car forum I run.
My rental is this Mercedes-Benz E250 diesel. I got it up to 200 kph (124 MPH) on the Autobahn yesterday before having to back off due to the 210 kph limited snow tires that are stupidly on it.
