Hyper123, went for a test drive to Advaith I think nxt to Downtown Pub, Had to make up my mind to recommend it or not to my mama in bombay. Remember the Signal near GPO where a Jet plane model is in the traffic island near the Income Tax office, was 1st at the RED, Ripped her till Cubbon Signal. Was shivering after the test drive with excitment. Nice car. Waiting to do the same with a Getz CRDi

Recent trip to UK. My boss's Mercedes Benz E220. Fortunately got my hands behind the wheels. And before the speed cameras kicked into action, I was doing 140 mph (224 kph)

Default 155 on my FIAT Adventure

Ummm I learned driving on this car only, and its now 4 month since i purchsed it.
I did 155 on it at the Gurgaon Manesar expressway (well its not a expressway actually). Couldn't get the free stretch to accelrate.
However I got a chance to drive Verna last week, and the pickup it was giving gave me hint that it can be pulled further then 155 mark.
Anyways i have heard a FIAT Adventure owner crossing 175 Mark.
So i was just testing how far can i go.

I crossed my highest speed of 180 ( speedo reading-Viva CRDi). I have crossed 190 clearly in Verna( speedo reading) and it was hovering near 200 but couldnt see what was the exact speedo reading as had to concentrate more on the road and steering.
