Looks like autobahn to me, trucks are certainly euro. I see nothing wrong here.

Little known fact that I learned while driving my humble rental car on the autobahn: The linked rings on the Audi grille are German for "Out of my way you ignorant peasant"!

I don't actually know for a fact what happens to left lane hogs in Germany, but it must be really bad because it just ain't done.

He slowed down to 275 when the camera came in-focus.

275kph would be 170mph.

Stupid and irresponsible? Absolutely!

Awesome? Also absolutely!

I'm sure the guy on the bike was pretty damn shocked to see the wagon come and play too. :)

Yes it is. What was in question was if he was really going 300km/h or if he was simply redlining in a lower gear.

IIRC, at least on the older ZX10, the speed limiter is just a lower rev limiter that kicks in when the trans is in 6th, so it is easily defeated. Not sure what the fancy new ones have.
