My top speeds
New Honda City 1.5 Gxi - 155 Kmph (Tambaram - Dindivanam Highway)
Honda City 1.5 Exi (2000) - 150 Kmph (Chennai-Pondicherry ECR)
Honda Civic 1.8S - 140 Kmph (Chennai-Pondicherry ECR) - had to stop at a restaurant.
Santro Zip Plus - 137 Kmph (Chennai-Pondicherry ECR) - it wouldn't just go faster . Actually the speedo showed somewhere between 135 and 140. So I assumed it to be around the 137 Kmph.

192 kmph, Citroen C4 1.6HDi, 110 Ps. On the Autobahn between Epinal and Frankfurt.
Was following another car, so could'nt overtake, but there was still some way to goto the floor!

The best way - shift in third at 120, engage fourth and floor the accelerator, the engine revs like a mixie and carries you to 160kmph reasonably quickly ...starts becoming a tad hoarse after 5600 RPM...I couldn't touch six though I tried hard. Maybe there's a rev limiter at 5500 rpm (not sure)
The tall gearing is responsible for the 4th gear top speed...In the Ikon 1.6, I could touch the top speed only in the 5th gear (190 kmph speedo indication on the Mumbai-Pune expressway and a 'burnt wire' smell)

190kph on my BMW R100RT. 203 in a Mustang....at least I think that is what I did. Everything was vibrating so bad the speedo was hard to read. I should have put my mobile phone down, I guess. Spilled my coffee, too!

135kmph in a Zen Estilo. The car was struggling. My Alto could do 145kmph on the same road. I could have pushed the Estilo a little more but had to back off as the car started fishtailing when there was a crosswind.
