The car driver is as mad as the helicopter pilot.

Got up to 216km/h,most of the time not much below 180km/h.

130km/h speed limit on motorways in the Ukraine.Guess there's not many cops around.

Slight thread drift but plenty of cars regularly drive at much higher speeds on unrestricted German autobahns. Are all of those drivers 'mad' as well?

This is pretty low too, although a bit more staged.

Is it just me or does that look a lot like a CGI helicopter?!

Have to say, I thought it was CGI too when I first saw it. Still not sure having watched it several times over!

I too think it is CGI.
The bicycle at 1:01 does not seem to be influenced by the down wash.
For the thread drift: bicycles are something rarely encountered on the German highways.

It's cgi ! There's no dust or sign of down wash , there is no adjustment in attitude to compensate for the hills and the driver does not even flinch when a helicopter appears 20 feet away

Well spotted! I too had concluded it was CGI but I missed the red cross.
