High Speed with Conan and a BMW i8 on the Autobahn – Video
O’Brien sits shotgun for the first run to get a feel for how the Autobahn works. For an American who is used to crappy drivers and useless speed limits, the polite and efficient world of the German Autobahn can be a bit disorienting.
When O’Brien first gets a shot behind the wheel, he goes so slowly that even trucks overtake him. Finally, he puts the pedal to the metal and gets up to an impressive speed of 250kph (about 155 mph). Of course, like someone who isn’t used to that sort of speed, O’Brien basically screams the entire time. The whole thing is hilarious to watch, and just proves how funny Conan O’Brien can be.
