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.
wassap mate......well,believe me or not......it has clocked 260KMPH........a CIELO im talkin bout.im sure cos i was sitting right next to this guy who is a psycho shankara....hehe.....
he has also got a certificate from michelin company cos his michelin certis had lasted for 1,10000 kms.......he's got the certificate and will take a pic n post it........
and yeah,he sold his 1997 cielo which had done 87000kms to a car freak in mumbai for 1,45000rs.....6 mths back.....
is'nt that unbelievable now???
he has a lancer le slxi as of now and in normal conditions he has clocked 220KMPH....
i can introduce this guy to you wen im in mumbai city next......he has gr8 knowledge bout cars,drag n drift racing and rally divin too........

Impossible. Unless it had longer gearing (Cielo was always known for short gearing), a bigger engine and a couple of turbos!! Even if it does manage to cross the 200 mark, keeping the front wheels on the ground will be the biggest challenge. I dont suppose your friend has got a front wing too?

Also a stock Lancer struggles to go beyond an indicated 190kph, and this I am speaking of the original 90 odd horsepower Lancers. They were later detuned and are currently available in the 87 bhp 1.5 engine.

hey guys, great speeds from u! especially 260 kmph on the katana!must have required loads of guts! 'neways, here are my three personal bests:
160 kmph(speedo) in diesel siena on a single lane state highway.
140 kmph(speedo again) in my diesel indica (well, my dad's a bit worried 'bout economy, so all diesels at home
both the said cars gave up completely after those speeds, even though it was pedal to metal!
and last but not the least: 115 kmph on my 2000 CBZ.

Great speed lamborghini!
by the way if u own a diesel siena, i would like to get some of my doubts regarding its power steering cleared, as my parents met with a near fatal accident as the power steering on my siena TD 60 ELX got so sensitive over 120kmph that i did 2 complete 360 degree turns and dashed against 2 trees in the process.
fortunately my parents were belted and the car was sturdy. it was a mess.
i just wanted to make u aware and to tell u to be careful.
hope nothing's wrong with ur PS. just get it double checked at services, that accident was horrible!

actually madmax the steering is fine but the gearbox kept on slipping back into neutral and when it had done some 65000 km its a.c developed a problem but apart from these i never faced any problem with the car and as a mater of fact it was the car to go in whenever the family went for long distance trips.
