I know of a safe place to get it to at least 155 three times in a lap.

You bring the M3 and I will bring the safety gear :D
It's a friend's car that's actually still in Germany :crying

I blew the rear diff on my anglia 105e @ 106mph

I regularly got 131 in my mk1 escort

and got 161 in my cousins e type

All were skimmed and tuned to the max and the anglia was bored to 1250cc... all done myself

my landrover was done 4 times on the m6 from birmingham to lancashire at 84mph

bring back the pre speed limit days.... they were much more fun and much less tiring

156 on my Suzuki TL1000 on the Autobahn, slowed down to 120, and had an Audi R8 blow by me like I was standing still.
105 or so in the SL on the Autobahn.


USA
KTM RC8 maybe 130 or so, going fast in a straight line does nothing for me, now throw some twisties in there and my heart rate goes up and my grin wider lol.

I have only had the 600 up to about 100 so far during daylight hours. I will need to find a lonely country road to do anything more.


Life is a gift.

Better yet, we can meet at the old Nürburgring and flog that baby all day!
Now there I'll do it! But even on the autobahn speeds higher than about 130 can feel a little dicey.

243km/h (verified with GPS; the car's speedometer proved surprisingly accurate at such high speeds) in my 1994 E320 on a stretch of route 40 between Riyadh and Taif, Saudi Arabia.

Not safe on a freeway in this state

Fastest on a freeway here was 80+ mph but I don't do that anymore: too many police or critters or debris--not safe.

In broad daylight on obscure western state highway with miles of visibility on roadway and roadsides, I have gone into the 90s on a Harley. In a car with passenger, maybe 85.

I did 105 in my SL55 with the top down in Connecticut. Led Zep does that to me sometimes. K40 was silent, but wife was making funny squealing noises.

Mine would be 278 km/h (175 mph) in an Audi A8 V8 TDI on the German Autobahn. I can't add in the photo but I will never forget this.

In a Benz, it would definitely be 250 km/h (155 mph) in an S320CDI. I also hit 265 km/h (167 mph) in a VW Phaeton V12 TDI.

Wasn't easy getting it on video..

146 MPH in a '88 Porsche 928 S4, every weekend or so for a few years.
(great 5 mile stretch of empty freeway with no entries/exits near my house)

That car hunkered closer to the ground the faster you let her run.
And always wanted to keep going faster. 5.0L, 325-ish rwHP.
It had plenty of room in the RPM dept department to keep going to the low 160's,
but I didn't (and still don't) have the guts or experience to let her take me for that kind of ride.

I did hit 535 MPH according to my Garmin
(when I turned it on at 45,000 ft flying cross country)
but I wasn't driving.

How Fast? SL 55 was 335 Kilometres Per hour in Fifth, and 286 KPH in 4th, in my 2007 SL 55,on the A96 Autobahn between Salzburg and Munich. Derestricted and modified by DMS UK. As for 170 MPH on a Race Track..? I don't think so, unless it was Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans. I Race Cars, and quickest was a Group C Le Mans LOLA T610, at about 160 MPH, but only a tacho to guess a speed....

Time for a new fun thread... I am curious on how fast have you guys ever driven on a public freeway?? I have gone over 90 more than once and 98 is my max as of now, in my E430 Sport, but only when there is not traffic, I play safe. which happened in the early mornings, 6:45-7 AM.
In the UK 183Mph on the A303..In Europe 205Mph but that was on the Autobahn and it was registered by sat nav because the needle was on the pin. Proving you dont have to be young to be stupid ..

Driven 248km/h (approx150mph i think) on a french highway with my E220CDI. I was able to maintain speed for 10minutes appprox. It was exhausting.
I also reached 110mph in New Mexico back in 1992 with my VW Sirocco KarmannGT.
