i love the Opel Vectra coz that car can beat most of the cars on indian roads.

i have touched the 210km mark(in Vectra)on the Jaipur highway but i guess thats not the actual speed it must be less.

this side of 20lacs it has to be the Octavia rally sport. Best car to have come on the indian shores. Otherwise I believe sl500 which is also available in India does a sprint to the ton in around 7 secs. Top speed is also a India whooping 289Kmph

The SL500 here is electronically limited to 250kmph.

all the cars which are imported to india are electronically limited to 250kmph as Shan2nu correctly said because according to the import policy all car companies have to limit the speed to 250km/h

I think the QUICKEST car is more relevant unless you live in the land of autobhans.

From that point of view, I think Octavia RS is the fastest under 20 lakhs. 0-100 times are as follows

Octy - 8 secs
Corolla - 9 secs
Accord 2.4 manual - 9 secs
OHC Vtec - 9.9 secs


eyond that, anything is importable for a price, so lets not go there.

Don't make it look so bad dude.

RS - 8.97
Accord 2.4 - 8.98
Accord V6 - 9.58
Corolla - 9.82
Vtec - 9.92

All within a sec of each other. the Corolla and the Vtec lose out due to the extra shift they require to get to 100.

After 100kmph, the bigger engined Accord V6 takes off.

dude the city vtec is is not as fast as you mentioned. it takes more than 10 secs. 10.54 to be precise(bsmotoring.com). Autocar puts it at 10.01 if i remember correctly.


About the top speed .Yeah my mistake in reading the figures from the website. Axually this car is internationally limited to 150miles. The top speed I mentioned belongs to the sl55.

I never knew about this 250 km/hr rule in India though. good information here.

Contact GTO, he'l show you how fast it is. How does 0-96 in 8.93 secs sound?
