video: AA-turbo E36 M3 top speed run

JonnyBlaze and I had a chance to drive a stage-2 AA turbo E36 M3 and open it up (on our private race track) late night back in Aug '03. He's trying to film. Hit the rev limiter in 5th gear around 265km/h. Car dynoed 420rwhp. Turn up your speakers!

Awesome! Cool video.

How did the car feel at those speeds? How much faster do you think you could have gone if you had longer/more gears?

It happened so fast, it didn't feel "scary" or uneasy at all. I'm sure the motorsport rear wing was actually working. It's always a different feeling of speed when you're in a car that accelerates at a higher rate of speed. You concentrate more on traffic and your tach (shifting points). I definitely felt like it could have pulled another 20-30km/h if it had another gear and more space.
