I loved watching this video ... imagine, running cars on the Autobahn at an average speed of "greater than a mile a minute", and not blowing the engine in 25,000 miles!
Maybe that was really good back then. I remember reading that the early Chevy small blocks would not stand up to extended driving on the Autobahn. But were they (the V8 Chevys) only going 'a mile a minute' (i.e. 60 MPH)?
Lots of propaganda shots of the Brits passing their main rival of the day, the air-cooled Beetle.
The interior shots show the cars configured for LHD - so designed for export to Europe or North America. If these are European-spec vehicles, then I think the speedometers would be metric, in which case the 80 indicated is not that impressive.
I like those column shifters, and stopping for a cuppa. I imagine the drivers to be ex-Spitfire and Hurricane pilots, 15 years later. www.youtube.com/ watch?v=nuwTWujeMM0
