I did 100 kph on my zen(petrol) and tried to cut between a qualis and a lorry wala.

Thanks to the lorry wala who applied his brakes in time, else i wud have been dead by now.

190 on my RS on the Pune Expressway. Surely cud have done more....the car was fine but I got jittery since it was my first time at this speed.

Also I would not try this on any other road but the Expressway !

doing even 50kph wont help you if you keep going close to other vehicles and cutting through them....100 at a safe distance from other vehicles and w/o stunts is a easily manageable speed....
sorry if this was hard as an advice but I hope you drive safely :-)

Before we sold off our carb Zen, I took it to the Hubli-Dharwar bypass and tested her top speed. She managed 125kmph on the speedo. Drove in that state for over 5 mins but never saw it hit 130. So 125 was as fast as that car would go.

Funny how things change. Today, even 160kmph is considered slow.

I was in 4th. It was a 97 Zen.

Or maybe, the car couldnt take all that weight
Or, maybe your car has a large speedo error. hehe
