Video: German Veyron owner's crazy 220-mph Autobahn blast

Imagine, for a moment, that you own a Bugatti Veyron. Wouldn't you be curious to find out what it feels like to swing past 200 miles per hour? (Okay, stupid question.) While an abandoned runway à la Top Gear would be ideal, one German man decided to break the 200-mph barrier on the infamous Autobahn.
Running up to 353 kilometers per hour – just a hair over 219 mph – is insane on any public road regardless of the vehicle used. But if there's any car we'd want to push that hard on the Autobahn, the Veyron would be it.
In an effort to clear a path, this Veyron owner fixed a set of police lights to the car, so naturally, other motorists would move out of the way. If the excessive speed is legal on this stretch of German motorway, which we don't know for sure, the flashing lights are certainly not. While it's not as reckless as our favorite Russian commuter and his motorcycle ride through Moscow, it's high on the list of things we don't condone (yet enjoy watching as long as no one gets hurt). Follow the jump to check it out. Thanks for the tip, Marco!
