Hello all...
Here's another topic for you guys...
What was the fastest speed you ever gone in a car? and what car was it? Mine was around 168 MPH in a Ferrari F355(not mine). How about you guys?

170MPH/274KPH in a RUF Porsche 930 Turbo. When I was 21.

An indicated 165mph/265kph on my Suzuki XN85D Turbo...realistically I think it was about 150/241 'cuz I think the speedo was optimistic (still, fast on a bike). I was 23.

And 150/241 in my 500E :D :D ...so far, as I haven't had the opportunity to safely find the speed limiter on this thing...covering too much ground too quickly and at 150/241+ speeds ANY curve is fairly dramatic.

Guess I gotta road-trip to Nevada, or maybe that flat, salty place in Utah?!?

Perhaps with age comes a sense of mortality? I'm 36 now, and anything over 125mph/200kph seemss wicked fast to me.

160MPH in a 1988 Saleen Ford Mustang Convert.

Gorgeous car...not mine, and the owner eventually lost it to the DEA. ;)
I won't answer questions about that one, either.

"tach'd out" a 92 500E in top gear which (by the math) equates to 165mph. (speedo was pegged) Also, though not me, I know a 500E owner to did 150-155mph in a tunnel (yikes!).

130MPH in my new-to-me '94 E420 coming back from Galveston to Dallas. Only for a few minutes though.

Previous week coming home from vacation at 6AM on a Sunday morn: US70 from Denver to intersect I35 in Kansas to go to Dallas. They have re-surfaced most of US70 on this stretch. Set cruise control on 120 MPH for slightly over two hours.

139Mph in my stock 96 328i(the speed limiter stop the fun)
Right now I had reprogrammed the ECU, it should do more than 139mph.
