Conan O’Brien Feels Need For Speed, Drives BMW i8 On German Autobahn

What is it with talk show hosts and cars?

Jay Leno is a well-known gearhead and David Letterman is a part owner of Verizon IndyCar team Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. Now, Conan O’Brien seems to have caught the bug as well.

The Brookline, Mass., native is currently on vacation in Germany and, while there, he decided to experience the unrestricted autobahn in a BMW i8.

Well, we think he did, anyway.

About to drive extremely fast on the #Autobahn just as soon as I figure out how to close the door. #ConanBerlin #Germany #BMW #i8

If O’Brien was able to figure out the i8’s scissor doors, he most likely took a cruise he won’t soon forget. Let’s just hope it’s not for the same reason some people remember their autobahn experience.
