In an unlimited zone, there’s no advisory speed. Do what you feel. Speed zones stop counting after 130kmh.Well then at least he wasn't texting while he was driving. Still, the advisory speed limit on the Autobahn is 81 mph. If you are involved in an accident while exceeding that speed then you can be held liable whether you are otherwise at fault or not. The Rav4 is not a Porsche or BMW which are typically designed for higher speeds.
Being from the other side of the pond, I'm in no position to dispute this. Could it be that Wikipedia needs an update then?In an unlimited zone, there’s no advisory speed. Do what you feel. Speed zones stop counting after 130kmh.

The Richtgeschwindigkeit (German Advisory or Suggested Speed of Travel) is a legal term in Germany describing the advisory speed limit for roads without a mandatory speed limit. Autobahns have an advisory speed limit of 130 kilometres per hour (81 mph) on non-signposted sections.
Exceeding the advised speed is not a criminal offense, but may result in greater liability in the case of a collision due to an increased danger of operating the vehicle.
In Germany, the Autobahn-Richtgeschwindigkeits-Verordnung (Directive on Reference Speed on Motorways), introduced in 1974, recommends a speed of no more than 130 km/h (81 mph) for autobahns and similar roads, whose lanes are separated by a median or which have at least two lanes per direction, provided there are no traffic signs posting a lower speed limit.
I think we are referring to two different things. The mandatory speed limit (you) vs the advisory speed (me).1

While parts of the autobahns and many other freeway-style highways have posted limits up to 130 km/h (81 mph) based on accident experience, congestion and other factors, many rural sections have no general speed limit.
