235 km/h - BMWm3....200 is just peace of cake

220 km/h - E420.....140 feels like cruiseing

I recently did 155 KMPH in my 2 month, 4200 KMs old Getz; on Delhi-Chandigarh highway, while coming back form a trip to Chail.
I was with my wife and kid, so was driving very safely, but the road was too tempting ;-) But I never took a chance and accelaraed when there was no vehicle in sight, and was able to go beyond 150 comfortably. The car felt ready for much more, but I didn't take chance. mebbe next time ;-)

Mondeo doesn't do 220 km/hr unless it's been modified. Max speed is about 205.

I used my International licence and always was very carefull watching out for the cops. I usually acclerate and then slow down. Once I got caught (50mph in a 30mph zone), I pretended to be ignorant and he saw the Indian licence and let me go. Guys please don't imitate this.

We have a Petrol Mondeo at it does touch 220 on the speedo so don't wan't to argue further!!

I did 155kmph in my ikon flair on Pune-Mumbai expressway a month back and the car felt really strong. generally revvs up to 140 mark pretty easily. Ford did a good job with this one.

Yes you are right its a supercharged engine. Unfortunately it was snowing heavily on the day I hired it so was scared to push her real hard! Always wanted to hire a Mustang.. may be next time!!

Default 195 in my RS

Did 195kmph in my Skoda RS on the new Rajerhat road Kolkata. Risky to go above that, as cows and buffaloes stray on that road.

Cheers...
