Let's just say I was stretching out the legs on the R yesterday on the highway, and it suddenly died...<p>There is a fairly straight and sometimes empty highway near me and yesterday the R was just begging to be driven. So I was accelerating at a steady pace on a beautiful Sunday afternoon when I put the car in sixth gear and let off the throttle to decelerate. I tapped the brakes once while letting off the throttle and suddenly all the lights on the dash came on at the same time and I feel the steering wheel get heavy, real heavy. In my mind I'm going "oh sh*t". I signaled and moved to the right lane. The road is still straight but I am now approaching lightly scattered cars, and my mind is flying.<p>I have now decelerated to 60 and I am looking to move off the highway and exit since there's no shoulder. I go and try to give it some gas (prior to this my foot was on the clutch the entire time) and there's nothing. I look at the speedo and it's indicating 60 but the RPM gauge is not moving. In fact, it was pointing to 0. My mind goes "oh crap" again. <p>Then, I thought real quick about it (but since the sunroof was open and there was a lot of wind noise, I never noticed)... could it be that the engine is off? Well it doesn't hurt to try, so while still moving I turned the key to 0 and attempted a restart. I felt the car move when the engine was started and everything is back to normal. No more lights, no unusual behavior, just drove like a champ again...<p>So, fellas, what could possibly be the cause of this? I don't think I can take it to the dealer as I'm sure I'll get the "we can't replicate the problem" answer. And frankly, I don't have any evidence of the event occuring (nor do I want any). I turn to you for some possible answers.
