Dunno about the S4 in the US, but here in Europe Audi recently announced
that they would break the "gentlemans agreement" on Vmax = 250 km/h in the
new RS6 Plus where the Vmax would be 280 km/h. This is supposedly justified
by claiming that the car may be driven "perfectly safe" up to this speed
providing the right roads...
If the S4 comes with H-rated tires I'm kinda surprised. Is there some
'american' requirement for a 'comfortable ride' or something???
My A6 2.8 came with V-rated tyres. H-rating reminds me of days in my -78
Opel Ascona 2.0S with a still plastic-smelling licence in my back pocket....
Max.speed in Norway is 100 km/h / 60 mhp :-( , but you need to have tires
that match your car's top speed (except on M+S). You go to jail if you go
above 140 km/h...
And you should see _our_ roads. A famous example was a german who was badly
hurt during base jumping in 'Trollveggen' (1000 m+). Turned out he bought
extra insurance to drive on norwegian roads, but not for base jumping...
sounds downright considerate - though unfathomable - to me.
hope nobody was really contemplating bumping the S4's speed limiter while
wearing snow tires?
