In Minnesota if you get caught driving over 100mph you loose your license. I think in most states if you get caught doing twice the legal speed limit you will loose your license. So be very careful and don't expect any sympathy when you get caught. Enough said...

MB limits the maximum speed, often times based upon the speed rating of the standard tires. My '01 SLK in Germany is limited to 149mph in the U.S. it is limited to 139. I believe my '00 E430 is also limited to 139. I personally haven't verified these but the limits are in the owners manual.

Oh once I did 200mph above I15 on the way to Vegas in a '78 Mooney 201. I was really flying. :rolleyes:

my 99 wagon has limiter at 125 mph. That where I was setting cruise control on I-80 going thru Nebraska and Nevada.
My 1979 VW Scirroco kicked the speedometer pin at 230 kph, but that was on autobahn.

When I reached the limiter in South Dakota it indicated 130 on the speedo, but only 126 on my GPS. It had a lot left. With the right tires and an ECU mod to remove the limiter, I suspect 150 is about the tops for the engine and the aerodynamics.

125 mph in E300dt. The traffic would not allow me to hold the speed for long, so can't say if that was governor, or end of the engine power. Got to 110 mph on 4-th gear and than acceleration was almost non-existent.
