have to give this amazin experience...
in shangai, the meglav'
blasts from 0-300kmph' holds on' announcments about the speeds and then takes off again to reach 432.
every coach has a digital indication of the speeds.
the train hostess are standin all the while.
at 432 the train on the returnin track blasts by and you just notice a flash but feel the turbulance.

75chineese currency for 22 kms or somethin but worth the money. and dont get distracted by the pretty hostess' look at the speedo.

Hey guys, the fastest i've gone is 250 KMPH on the mumbai pune expressway in an S320L(not mine of course). The car felt totally stable and was good for another 20-30 KMPH..i'm sure the S350 will get to 250 a lot easier!!! Cheers mates

Bikes:
topped out my japanese cbr600f on ECR - 180kph i think. but speedo went further than that - maybe 200.
250kph (i think) on R1 on ECR from Chennai to Pondi.
did 220kph on friends zx-6r on ECR.
no idea how fast i was on the donington straight during the Ron Haslam Racing Lessons, as the speedo was covered. probably 200+kph.
180kph on friends Ducati Monster 900 on ECR.

Cars:
210kph in friends modded mondeo on ECR from Pondi to Chennai. was following my friends on their big bikes. saw the speedo and freaked out. didnt realise i was going so fast.
200kph in Lexus GS300 in Chennai city.
100mph in my mondeo on motorway near London.
115mph in hired toyota yaris on motorway from London to Edinburgh.
200kph in Mivec transplanted Lancer in Chennai city.

Been driven much faster as a passenger:
Around 250kph in Old E-class on Autobahn in Germany.
200kph in Testarossa on highway in Belgium.
215kph in Stock Supra in Chennai city.

Friend of mine has transplanted an evo6 engine into his lancer, and his dad's got an M3 now. So am sure, i'm gonna be seeing some high speeds!

Will keep y'all posted.

200 on the speedo or true speed. If so, then how did you check the car's true speed?

How did you measure it? How did you manage to keep the wheels on the ground at that speed? What modifications do you have in your Zen beside the 1.3 Esteem engine? Carb or Mpfi?
