OK, so it's a couple of fools messing around on the highway, using it like their personal race track - somewhere in Europe based on the shape of the plates.

yeah, ok, we've all see this kind of idiot before... this one has a different sort of twist at the end though

More than I can review. ;)
If it were mph, it'd be somewhat interesting.

Thats still 40 km/h faster than the fastest truck i have ever seen ( same style rig on a 80 km/h highway )

But 110 was still fast not least as trucks here are supposed to be capped at 80 km/h

right, if they were going 150, then the truck must have been doing at least 180 to pass them like that.

the truck going stupidly fast reminds me of an experience I had on I-10 some time in the mid 90s. The road is 2 lanes in each direction there. I had cruise set at 80mph (in a 65 zone) and there were practically no other cars anywhere since it was a fairly remote part of Louisiana. I checked my mirrors and way in the distance I saw some trucks in both lanes. Didn't think much of it since I was already in the slow lane. Checked mirrors again a few seconds later and they were now on top of me. They passed me on both sides - left lane and shoulder. It was a convoy of like 7-8 trucks, hauling major ass - i guessed about 120 mph at least. made me look like i was standing still, and the wind from them passing me on both sides pushed around my little 88 camry (which i think only weighed like 2600 lbs)pretty bad.

and speaking of ass, mine took a LONG time to un-pucker after that.

when the truck passed them, they seemed to be doing a steady 150-ish km/h. they may have been lining up for another run. if you look closely, you can see the truck in the side mirror of the tesla (which seems to be a model X, so it's not quite as fast as the S, but still capable of being stupid fast)... but then again, the F10 M5 is no slouch itself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_M5#F10_M5_.282011.E2.80.932016.29

Looked to me like the truck was doing the truck speed limit and the "fast" cars were doing more like 15.0 - that would be illegally slow in the UK.

The slow movement of the traffic on the other side confirms, as well as the ridiculous acceleration.
