Most petrol cars achieve their top speeds in 4th gear (in a 5speed tranny), so if you achieved that speed in 4th @ 4900rpm, then it can go over 170kph for sure.

Recently managed a 180 kph in my stock Lancer. Clear roads for 4-5 kms ahead and thought it was the best time to extract the max outta her. She refused to go any further than that, no matter how hard I'd try. But I am overjoyed.

Down-hill just before the 2nd toll naka approaches on the Mumbai - Pune expressway (heading from Mumbai towards Pune).

I've done
a) 135 kmph on my 1967 VW Beetle(Tumkur Main Road)
b) 130 kmph on my 1997 M-800 (Tirupati Road)
c) 135 kmph on my 2001 Matiz (Tumkur Main Road)
c) 160 kmph on my Safari Dicor (Road to Dharwad)

These many, but i still think my machines are capable of much more.

Will update later

Arey, I was talking about bone stock cars!! Modded cars will achieve higher top speeds, but still it depends on what it is modded for - higher top speed/greater acceleration.

Dicor 3L ! yes at 160 kmph on odo,no modifications (ITS A STOCK SUV) would love to share the video taken by my brother while touching that speed.

With 6 kms of road strecth that can be seen from your car and no traffic, we have easily achieved this with 5 adult +1 kid in the car and lots of luggage at rear and with a/c off.

All the top speed figures mentioned are with min of 5 people in car.

This can get dangerous at times. advised not to try this too often.

Every bodys opinion man,

I stick to mine, you can have your say.

I only intend to tell people that just because of this thread we must not put our's or someones life at risk.

If we had a test track at our disposal, this thread would have been very Appropriate.


What say others
