  1. 160 MPH or around 250 KMPH on a Nissan Maxima (V6) on a drive from Atlanta to Dallas... I was just too tired and wanted to get home. Dad drove on the way to Atlanta... time taken = 16 hours. Time back to Dallas with my driving = 11 hours !
  2. Maruti 800 MPFI - 140 KMPH (Actually the Speedo needle reached its limit! Was able to do it on a long flyover, at 300 AM in the morning with a good tail wind)
  3. Santro Xing - 130 KMPH
  4. Next on the list... my upcoming Verna CRDi SX w/ ABS... lets see how fast she goes!

Both vehicles are Swifts right? Different variants?
Its the Ldi model sankar hence no tacho, only the Vdi comes with a tacho.
Very scary to drive with stock tyres...

Was the Maxima you drove was modified one or it is a standard one! Because somehow the governed speed limit of standard Mamima is way too less than what you mentioned!

The max I drove till now is 140+ mph (244 approx.) in a AUDI 4.2 V8. It was my friend's car. Thats way too risky even if you have detectors and all kind of laser blocks installed.

Here are mine -
Lancer - 150kmph and then I realized the speed and slowed down.
Ikon 1.6 - 130kmph on Marine Drive late at night. Got a jhatka.
Fiesta 1.4 TDCi - 120-130kmph at 3 in the morning on the W.E. Highway
Accord 2.3 Vti - 120-130 kmph at Marine Drive. Didn't feel it and once i saw the speedometer, i slowed down to a more reasonable speed.

I am generally a safe and slow driver, but once in a while, on a good road, i get tempted to go into the 3 digits but I make sure I know my limits and the cars limits.

i have this wonderful ability of taking a normal diesel QUAILS to 120-130km/hr the moment that happens i start crying and i usually stop the car and smell the burned engine. This car is dangerous driving anything above 100 it also has the ability to fly,i have not achieved that at the moment but i am determined
