Did 180kmph on Coimbatore L&T highway with my Swift in Feb 2007. Swift was capable of doing more, but I was scared about the stability.

How long does a Chennai drive take with that average speed?

I think both vehicles are not meant to go over 125kmph. Verna handles like a skateboard and the Scorpio, well its a Scorpio. High center of gravity, bouncy shocks etc.
