I'm not sure many of the highways (such as the Autobahn) even have speed limits. All I know is that I have been passed when I was doing a mild-mannered 140 km/hr by guys who made me look like I was standing still.

practically all of Europe has national speed limits https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Freeway_speed_limits_e..., with the notable exception of Germany, where there is no highway speed limit unless there is one posted (which often enough is the case).

Germans love to speed on the motorway (and the German auto lobby thinks not having a limit helps promoting their premium products). The rationality of the former is probably comparable to USians loving their guns...
