Hmmm then maybe the 140km/h limit has been discontinued again? Press news in the matter are from 2004, e.g.:
http://www.autokiste.de/psg/archiv/a.htm?id=3381

But 130km/h posted limits do exist, e.g. on parts of A6 between Mannheim and Saarbrücken.

I don't say they don't exist I just say I've never seen
Germany has quite a huge motorway system, so I've seen only small part of the motorways there

I've seen some pics here on SSC some months ago with a posted 140 km/h speed limit in Germany (there was also one from a Bundesstraße, not a motorway).

Here is a weird speed limit sign that I found on the internet from Hamburg, Germany:

Signposted limits in Germany on motorways include 50, 60, 70, 80, 100, 120, 130 and 140.

Yeah, 5 km/h markings are more usual, but I haven't ever seen one not ending in 5 or 0 before.

There is a 5 km/h sign in Timisoara, but someone added some extra paint and now it's 6 km/h

8 km/h
about 140 km/h in Germany - i think that Chris has posted it once, but it was on dynamic signalization protal.
i have a video that my parents made traveling to Spain in 1989, whole area around Nice was flooded with 45 km/h signs

Before 1990, the general urban speed limit was 60 km/h in France, and the lower one typically 45 km/h.

Ah, so now I get where the 45km/h are originating from!
Since a 45km/h limit with a 50km/h general limit is kinda weird ...

I found an interesting sign on the way from Ely to Wisbech in Norfolk (A1101). I was a little worried I could not show you the sign because I hadn't carried a camera on me, fortunately uncle google was helpful as usual.
