The radar tell us a speed of 196km/h 400m before the tunnel, this is not possible, as the Mercedes S280 with its small 2,8 engine of 193hp would only be able to bring the fully loaded car (2300kg) up to a speed of 175-180km/h in approx. 39s using the distance of 900m from the Concorde trafic light. * So if 180km/h is the correct speed and Poul made 16m skid marks to bring the speed down to around under 100km/h, the car would be fully under control by Poul to accelerate up to the crash speed of 130km/h, so other things that the speed was the cause of the crash This car is very easy to handle, no one need special training to drive it.as claimed by some media * http://www.automobile-catalog.com/auta_perf1.php
