The top speed i did on my previous Maruti Omni was 120kmph (this was the max speed on the speedometer also).

The max on my new Innova is 80kmph (restricting myself to 2000rpm on the tacho) till 1000 kms. current odo reading is 595km

Recently did a Pune - Bangalore run in our new Corolla. The road being in excellent condition (except for a few kms) managed to cruise almost the entire distance between 120 140. Touched a high speed of 190.
The car was rock stable. And the best part was that I could feel that this car has the capacity to do more. More later..

This is interesting... In Dubai on my AUdi TT had done 260 km...
Here in India... Scorpio 170 km on vadodara express while coming from Delhi.. and now in my automatic civic which I was driving in paddle shift, racing with a BMW 525 had hit 210km... u read it right, you will think company says 204 but that's not true, took the guy in BMW and didnt let him go ahead... this was recently on Pune express...

Meet me on the road for a Joyride...

Cheers

Have touched 180 KMPH twice on 1 day on my S10 on the NICE road between Bannerghatta Section & Mysore Road section. At that time the S10 was completely stock and tyres condition was just OK.

The S10 for sure had lots of juice still left and could have gone further but I slowed down considering absence of ABS & the relatively poor braking of the Palio.

Want to test the speed limit once more with the Green Storm CAI now installed, but am waiting for no rains and a tyre upgrade. Am not confident about the tyres.

Done 190 kmph + in October 2005 Baleno. At high speed, I was not interested in calculating those small marks on speedo.

The reading is speedometer reading and the road is Vadodara - Ahmedabad expresshighway ( NE-1 ).

Done a 180Kmph may be a littel more, dint have the guts to look at the spedo in detail. Was wanting to do the golden 200 but some how i stopped myself. Guess my car could have done it. Was on the mum-pune express way.
