That lightning does sound nice :D kinda odd to see MPH as a measure of speed in Germany... I guess it's odd to see a Ford f-150 in German too.

What you're hearing is the supercharger in the L. It 'screams' when it's compressing the air into the intake. 8-)

I don't think the Porsche was in "third gear" at 152 MPH :shock: !

There are portions of the Autobahn that are unrestricted as to MPH. Btw, that L is 'tricked' out with Brembo GT brakes, etc. There is at least one L that hit's 165 MPH as its owner competes in the Silver Dollar Road Race in Nevada. His L is modified severely with aero and suspension mods to to keep it on the road. He's won his class a few times :D

Dan, that is sweet! I go to Germany every March, and the Autobahn is crazy. I love the sound of the supercharger on that truck!
