Yes..maybe.. but had 3 adults and a kid in the car and did not want to risk it..so basically just touched it and lifted off. I agree that this is not the top speed of the car and it can do more..especially if given the road and a single rider

I have done 145 in an alto.... it wouldn't go beyond that, though thats not the fastest I have driven - did a 155 in Surat city with my dad's RS... but it was raining and it scared the hell out of my passenger (who happened to be my dad's chauffer).... so had to slow down!

Default Saab 9-5

I drove a 2001 Saab upto 210km/h with my wife and kid around!

Once I stopped i was told that the tyres weren't good condition and got adviced do not drive more than 100+! I went mad! Just imagine...

I have tried my sunny (with semi synthetic magnatec) upto 180km/h. Upto 160km/p sunny sounded solid. but after that...feeling not so comfortable.

Tried Santro upto 120km/h...still felt solid! Good car. =
