It all started when this car overtook me from the wrong side and dangerously enough! A little provocation from that car and thumbs up from my friend got me revving my baby for the first time. Did 150 kmph on my 5k kms old MPFI Zen on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. Was racing with a OHC (not a VTEC!), managed to overtake him at 145 and cruised to victory at 150 Was tailing him for almost 10 kms and waiting for the right time to overtake him. He, on the other hand, was pretty good a racer himself, not allowing me to get on to overtaking mode. Also shot a picture of the speedo at 150!

However, after that, let go of the throttle came down to a comfortably crusing 120 kmph. The look on his face was priceless as he again sped past me, peering through his window at my tiny marvel(and me!). However, my friend on the passenger side was kind enough to show him the finger before letting him continue his race all alone!

Cheers!

Love that roadster. Probably the best one around.

I hope you've framed it. Why don't you take a pic of it and post it here.

expressways were very good before you can easily cruise at high speeds of around 200+ if i am not mistaken. but now the roads have become a little bad

Kooldude.. expressway is not worth doing more then 120 forget 200+ the roads are really bad and work is going on it and traffic sense is totally lost..

Always remember(since you a youth) any fool can drive fast but few can drive safe.. Always remember that Power is nothing without control.. Drive safe people..

ya montoya i know that anyone can drive fast but we should know how to control our car and also know the limits of our car. I have also mentioned that the roads are bad. I have driven many times on expressway but now have stopped driving so dont know the present conditions of the road.

Prenset conditions of the road are not that good.. the road is currently being made at some places and the monsoons are approaching so they are making them..

Anywayz you dont need to go to expressway to drive.. i feel the Kharghar roads are the best to drive..
