1970 Corvette Stingray clocked nearly 120 mph (~195-200kmph) in it, I know it isn't much for a car of that league, but I drove it in early 2000... it was way past it's prime, but still had a lot of growl in it. The car wasn't mine though, beloged to a colleague of mine, till he decided to sell it, got AED 120,000 for it . Would have bought it from him if I had the cash, a true sports car, good bang for bucks even in it's dotage.

Also clocked 185 kmph in a 2005 Toyota Corolla my dad used to have, and have crossed 200 kmph in his Chevrolet Epica.

271 in the NSX, and around 274 in the GSX. But been in that range a million times in many different cars(I'm hooked).

Looking to break 322.58(200mph) in the NSX this summer.
