You cant get over 160

There is no governer. Mercedes says there is to appease the green party. In this pic I just couldnt get her to do anymore. RPMs just wouldnt climb anymore. 155mph. but with a slight down hill i bet she could have gotten to 160. notice how fast the rpms climb in top gear.

speedometers are pretty optimistic at those speeds. They have been known to be off by as much as 10%.

Id wager that you were going a bit slower than 155.

HOW U DOING JOE? FOR U GUYS ANYTIME
Hey, Rick, watch the post in the events section, looks like late May. Finally got the dent in the front fender fixed, the shop was nice enough to polish the haze off of my headlights (wasn't much, it was on my "C" list) and they look lots better, too.

Hope all's been well with you. Slow down a bit unless you're at a track day, okay? We like you and want to keep you around. :thumbsup:

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

The speedos are inherently inaccurate at those speeds. If you had a gps based speedo you'd probably see that you're going 155 on the nose. But like someone else said, grade, tailwind, tire size can all effect both your actual speed and reported speed.

I've had my speedo up to 166 on I-75 in FL. and it was still climbing.Ran up on traffic REALLY quick. I had to get out of it. Guess it was just being optimistic? My title specifies "Not intended for U.S. Market", do all AMG's state this? I am interested in seeing what the top speed will be? Just hard to find an uncongested stretch. Brian
