I'm impressed with what I've read so far.....though in some cases, I was wondering if we need to modify the thread title to read "What I WISH my Top Speed would be".......

Looks like their instrument calibrators have been eating the same LSD as their designers...

Did a 140 in my Alto on the way to Bangalore-Pondicherry highway. so far after that I have never been able to reach that speed till date.
Have to go again on a long driveand now since I have my new K&N got to check out. I easily reach 120 in small streches on outer ring roads in bangalore.

Done 130 kmph (Outer Ring Road in Bangalore) in my Esteem and 190 Kmph in Canada (Ottawa-Toronto) in a Ford Explorer SUV. Could have gone higher but the damn SUV had a max limit of 200 Kmph ... SUVs ain't that good for speed ...
