What is it with men and high speed car chases that are endangering lives? It's like watching football:

There he goes
Oh, come on come come on!
That was a close one
Look at those dumb fat cops
Wait...haha he ran over a poodle!
You call that fast
Dang it's over!

lol, no way a cop car was just going between 120mph-180mph like nothing....

don't know the conversion, but I know 85mph is 140KM/H so it was probably around 100mph... fast, but not THAT fast....

He only managed to get the cop car up to around 130 mph. Fast but nothing extreme. But for you Caddy guys that is fast since you have those 108 mph limiters:p

If you watch the video he tops 200+ kph. That's over 125mph. I have no limiter ala Stealth V tune. 170+! Been up to 165mph but don't have the life insurance for more. :lildevil:

Judging by the footage and cars, I'd say this chase was in either Germany or Sweden. The cops might've been using M-B E-Class patrol cars. The "Lotus" Omega was quite a car. A Vauxhall/Opel seden tuned by Lotus. About 380 hp, I think.

So how does the video end? Mine jammed up after a minute or two.

The Lotus Carlton (Omega on the continent) had a 176mph top speed, does 0-60 in 5.2 seconds and at the time (1990) was the fastest 4 door saloon you could buy.

It was based on the 3.0 Carlton but stroked to 3.6 litre and is a 24v twin turbocharged and intercoooled 377 BHP.

They cost 48,000 at the time (1990, and to give you an idea in 2000 a Cadillac STS cost 40,000) and they made about 950 of them in total (284 were RHD for the UK) instead of the planned 1100 as the recession hit and no-one was gonna cough up that sort of money for a Vauxhall.

All cars were a very dark green (imperial green) which looks almost black.

Cool! Too bad it is the Omega series before the Catera version came out.

Ehm... let's keep it to the '03 CTS. I won't even be able to tell how fast the 70 Eldorado would be going exactly, since the odometer goes 'til 120, but the hand goes well beyond that.

I been going faster than 120 with the 70 Eldo, but it was not a pleasant ride. The nose comes up as it catches wind, making the ride unstable.
