To be fair, the UK has a shit-ton of archaic laws including mandatory longbow practice and some exemptions for murder, they are however not only not enforced but are actually counteracted by later laws making them impotent in effect, so whilst there may still be some silly laws about the place they can't be enforced, and that includes Germany's law there, because it would be a human right's violation to act based on those criteria.

Will he get punished? Who knows, Germany's in a weird state at the moment so maybe he will, but it will not be because of the archaic law, as that law is rendered void by freedom of speech and expression laws.

Indeed it is. And then the majority of people living here still have the audacity to claim we have freedom of speech while it's illegal to mock foreign leaders or denying one or the other genocide (in the case of Switzerland and Germany).

Well, Germany has also laws which when enforced would police would protect the borders and are even allowed to use lethal-force but still let 1.500 000 illegals into the country

It's not like those laws are actually used.
You find laws like these in European countries because those countries changed to Democracy more than a century ago, when freedom of speech was a relatively new thing, and the fact that journalists could freely comment on the government's policies without having to consult with a censor was a huge advance in human rights.
In most cases these laws are no longer in use because they have been made irrelevant in modern times - such as is the case in England where all men over the age of 12 are technically required to spend 2 hours per day practicing the longbow - and as such have been forgotten, and no-one is prosecuted for breaking them.
Occasionally, incidents like these occur, but the most frequent result of these situations is a refusal to prosecute the offender, and that law being swiftly removed.

1. If a law isn't used, it should never exist
2. In the case of Switzerland, it was written into law less than 70 years ago (1951)
3. It is not the only instance where Swiss and German laws prove that freedom of speech only exists with the footnote of "unless the government disagrees with it". You can actually be procecuted for denying the holocaust in Germany or the armenian genocide in Switzerland, both laws have cases in the last 20 years where people were actually indicted.

Hey, don't judge all of us just because the turks and krauts are retarded.

In Switzerland, we have the same bullshit law. It also exists in Poland, Italy and Iceland while the authorities of Spain, the Netherlands, Norway and Denmark will only fuck you if you insult their own royalty.

I...know what a diesel is. I was trying to be a smartass by giving you the most extreme and irrelevant but still technically true example to your question. And I fucked it up. Just let me wallow in shame in peace.

Balls, I meant the R8 and I guess that was discussed years ago and then abandoned but now there's rumors that it MAY come back. I mean I'm not holding my breath but you just asked for examples of a diesel with a high redline.

Just saying, that's the R8 TDI V12 cockpit...
The higher compression requirements and therefore heavier construction are one limiter for high rpm in diesel engines. The other is that due to the self-ignition (through compression and therefore heat) of the already more slowly burning air-fuel mixture, you always have some leftover fuel in the cylinder each stroke compared to a gasoline engine.
