Hey guys,

Well i dont really follow the official speed limit, but i have made my own personal speed limit of ~160km/h...sounds fair enough right?

Carbed esteem - 160km/h
W123 200 - 160km/h
Accent (petrol) - 160km/h in the wet (god bless MXF sports)
Audi A6 2.7T - 155km/h (in the US)
Merc 300TD - 165km/h (US)
BMW 540i - 160km/h (US)
Honda S2000 - 160km/h (US)
BMW E46 M3 - 140km/h (US - was on a test drive so couldnt push much further...)

Thats all for now i think....

PS - you have been in a concorde??? howcum??? thats awesome!! who bought the ticket??
And im with you on the fact that straight line speed is not as much fun as corners, however it does get the adrenaline flowing because of the danger..but still..not a favourite of mine in uncontrolled conditions.

cya

Was it a modified SEL? cause i believe all stock cars from Germany have a speed limiter @ 250 km/h?
Yes it was the special edition (ECE I think...300 bhp)

my fastest is 180-190 kph on the palm beach road in nerul in a friends v6 honda accord ,
and in my zen is 160kph .the speedo touched 160kph and i cud floor the accelerator more but there wer no numbers on the speedo.
this has happened many times on the eastern expresshighway,mumbai pune highway ,or any straight stretch between mumbai and mangalore with all errors it may be 150-160kph.
and 800+kph in a plane ,me as a passenger.

appreciated.......but there is more to it than the speedo.
one of my friend whoz a rally driver has also clocked 260 on the cielo.it is very much possible as after gettin to the max speed the speedo starts from 0 again.that adds to it.
and yeah the speed was clocked on the expressway.
regards.

WHAT!! I've never heard of that before lol!! either you've not written something correctly or that cielo's speedo was waaaaaaaaaaaaay of! There is no way in hell a Cielo is gonna do 260 Kmph (162mph!!) unless its dropped out of a plane at 30,000 feet. Sorry dude.
