I managed to touch 100 mph in Ford Escort on I-77, US and 110 mph on M4, London in Vaxhaul mini van. In India, I touched 140 kmph on various highways in my Matiz. Now that I have a NHC ZX Gxi, I am yet to hit the highway.

Went to Nandi hills on 9th and touched 130kmph on the NH7....with just the LL and with the previous RC book still under the previous owner....But all in all a fun ride.... Just got the car serviced at metro ford and now planning the next trip.....on 15 next month....will post some pics of that trip.....

170 kmph at Mumbai -Pune expressway in a modified 1.3 OHC,,but this was not very comfortable as the car feels too light and strong cross winds tend to unsettle it,, does anyone else share this feeling about an otherwise brilliant car
