180 in my Peugeot 309 GTi in the Uk
170 in my cousins Renault 5 Turbo in the Uk
160 in the Vtec in India
140 in the Zen
185 in a Ferrari 360M on track in the UK- was being supervised
170 in a Merc 230E (no cops around)
Been a passenger at 220 in a Porsche 993 cabrio - everything moves backwards and you need to scrape the flies of your specs

Doubt I would be able to do it again with all the speed traps around except on track

Just a 140 on the RD(true speed) and a speedo indicated 160 on the Astra. Just a beginner i guess.

Never thought of that. Interesting and scary to know.

My personal highest has been behind the wheel of a Mercedes 560SEL at an indicated 270km/h +. Where else but in Germany! I wasnt even 18 then.

GTO
GTO,
Was it a modified SEL? cause i believe all stock cars from Germany have a speed limiter @ 250 km/h?

Now i feel slow compared to u

ajmat,
why were u being supervised @ the 360 modena? was it a rented car??

210 in a C220 CDI, where else, but on the expressway of course.
i love the idea of track days, damn popular in britain and rightfully so. absolute VFM for around 300 pounds or so.

The Fastest I've been is in a Concorde!

My personal Fastest (driven) was in an Alfa Romeo T-Spark. But I am embarraced to say the speed now after seeing ya'll ! (this was in UK). But on expressway I've never been above 80 KMPH! I respect the rules!

As I Said :
'Its not about how fast you can go straight'...
Got it ?
