..that was once and never more (driving and shooting)! I really clamped the wheel very very hard, and could throw the camera a side immediately if needed.

The car is a Volvo V60 250 HP 4-cyl gasoline turbo direct injection. Usual I drive (in the Netherlands) 100 km/h on pilot assist during day time; after 19:00 h speedlimit is 130 km/h, but even that I don't drive, because these short distances (<100 km) you gain just a few minutes. Driving with pilot assist is very relaxed. But sometimes..

Ab,

The V60 is a nice car, indeed! Volvo has done well with their designs, and I THINK their quality has also improved a fair bit, IIRC. I've ridden a bicycle in The Netherlands, but haven't driven. I DID drive in Germany (both West AND East, back when there was a difference!), and drove my little Dodge nèe Mitsubishi Ram 50 pickup truck at 125 MPH or so (201kph).

Thanks for the info, and yes, be safe on that sort of adventure!
