115kph on my 1999 M800 and dont ask how stable it was!!!..it was tried once and never again.
but i do 100kph often on the NH-47 !! and this car goes smooth,im quite used to the steady vibrations it gives at those speeds.
hoping that my next car(which would be swift)would be much better to ride on at those speeds !!!!!

The fastest I've driven has been around 180kmph on the Pune bypass of the NH4 in a Lancer Cedia.

Which mercedes was it?

My hands shiver if I cross 100 KMPH, but in my Civic I touched
145 KMPH without my knowing on a Hosur to Krishnagiri (Tamilnadu) road.
But I couldn't hold it for beyond 5 mins.

What a Car for a bullock cart driver like me

Shadow: the s600 is a V-12 right? Awesome engines. I believe they're like turbines.

Did 220kmph in ma verna twice . first time it was just a rush to 220kmph and backed off, next time i stayed at 220kmph for 5 secs or so, the car was rock solid but tyre noise was a bit too much, the AC and Stereo took that prob away..lolz..

220 on a stock Verna . Is that really possible or a major speedo error kicking in here? I thought 1.5 ltr, 100 BHP engines can at best have a top whack of 190 or so.

I did a 185 in my ford ikon on the mumbai pune expressway. But it was for a few seconds only. Normally i do not go above 140 . but it was a thrilling experience. But would not like to repeat because of safety issues.

obviously speedo error will be there dude i believe its actually 184kmph top speed possible, but ma car has ben done with first service.,, so yes a true 190-200kmph incuding 10-15% error i guess would have been the case. i dont know the exact figure , i am telling what the speedo showed!! thats all. by the way its 1.5l 110ps engine!! the torque is 24kgm. which is the force behind the acceleration!! and add that VGT unit too, it gives maxmum power at 4000rpm in 5th gear at 4000rpm the vehicle makes peak power 110ps!!. i was able to see the rpm needle at 4000-4200rpm range!! i have done it twice, aint doing it for third time!!
there is a saying in malayalam.
you dont get in trouble in first, you get caught in third .

peace out

Tried everything....It wouldn't go beyond 4k rpm and 160kmph..
Top speed of 160kmph is really disappointing for a car which reaches 140kmph in real hurry.
