great video but i think you need to mention that the road conditions dont really allow a much higher speed in any kind of car especially at night. we did that drive in a Prius and ignoring stop times, we averaged under 25 mph. it was 12 hours in a car with a bunch of stops for pix but i timed most of the stops and still had 7+ hours of road time and still did less than 200 miles that day.
we hit our hotel at 10 PM. we thought it would be about 7...
At night, the section from Big Sur to Ragged Point might be that slow, if you were unfamiliar with the road. But this past March I drove from Monterey to San Simeon by day in something like 3.5 hours, and allowing for the frequent stops for picture taking, an extended bathroom break in Lucia (one toilet, three of us plus a couple of others ahead of us in line) and a brief wait for a convoy through a section of road work, I imagine I averaged around 45 mph for the ~95 miles. Owing to the pax. and the frequent photo ops I was taking it easy, and I hadn't driven the road (and then northbound) in over 20 years, so I don't think it's that slow outside of tourist season.
