I am some how not convinced that you did 200kmph in a diesel octy... at the max it does 180kmph on speedo & to do 180 you need to literally stand in the accelarator until christmas... No way 200... unless or untill you've got some mods to it!! otherwise no way dude!! it runs out of power at 4500 rpm and even though it revs to 5000 there isnt anything available... best way to extract power from that diesel octy is b/w 2000 - 4000rpm where you get good torque... with just 4000 rpm you hit 200... mmmm

But still maybe i cud be wrong!

Hyundai Santro 1.1 : 130 kmph
Maruti 800 mpfi : 120 kmph

All speedo readings and with stock engine tuning and tyres.

* Sumo's top speed of 110 kmph was around four years ago. Now can touch 100 kmph only, but need lot of time and road length to achieve that. The best part is that there is very little chance of getting a speeding challan in the city, as by the time you reach 60 kmph you encounter some traffic or the other.
Not usually a fast driver, but did manage to touch around 147 kmph on my Indigo TDi on the DND. Could have gone faster to the claimed top speed of around 155, if got a clean stretch of road. Have a hazy camera phone picture, which my co-passenger took, my eyes were wide open concentrating on the road/traffic ahead. Did take some reaching the speed, but once it got going, it felt it won’t stop given the momentum of 1.1 tonnes. The car felt quite solid and well-planted till about 130 kmph, after that you could make out that you were going quite fast. Must-have flummoxed quite a few drivers (especially a sonata – old model – doing around 130 kmph), who in their rear-view mirrors could have easily mistaken it for an Indica. Was good fun, but don’t think will try going that fast again, atleast in the same car.
