We had a trip over to Germany on the weekend and found a lovely stretch of de-restricted Autobahn, so mashed the pedal.

In the end, we managed to just touch 190mph / 305kph on the speedo. It looks less in the picture but that's because of the angle I was taking it from in the passenger seat.

It's the later V8, so the 347bhp version.

incredibly quiet at speed, even seemed quieter than the other video of the B5 @ 300+ km/h... might just be the cam corder

Very impressive!

Should have been tempting to see what it was on the GPS and also tempting to chase you in an M5 E39 :D

I've tried holding it myself on a high-speed run before and I barely managed to get any shots of the actual speedo because I was being bumped about so much. That's also why I took the still picture to get a clear view of the speed.

Yes,i understand.I'm not at ease myself at those speeds and i guess i'm lucky to have germany just around the corner.Still i like the Dutch roads much better.:)
