You managed 170kmph on the 155 goodyears. At 120kmph+ it feels so scary.

Yes u are right. As i said before the car was literally flying and that huge steering was very light & floaty but i would say the brakes were pretty good....There was no scary feeling as i was doing those speeds on Gr Noida Expressway which is a 25+ kms wide stretch of road with minimal traffic due to the summer heat..

Did 190 on my Corsa 1.4 on the mumbai pune expressway. Not a stock car though, stage 2 mods. bigger throttle body, magnaflow free flow, fse, porting polishing etc etc. And believe it or not, the beast had enough juice to go at least 10-15 more on the speedo (which maxes out at 200 by the way). Loved the stability.

did you mean 310kmph? 510 is a bit hard to digest

Hyundai cars i recently drove. My friends cars.

Santro : 140KMPH Chandigarh Delhi highway. Its abit scary to drive a tall boy at that speed just did this one time after that back to 100 - 120.

Hyundai Verna Sexy Black: 160+ on Chandigarh - Pathankot high way. Its a oneway highway. Was having fun with fiesta 1.6. But driving Verna at that speed it scary. The steering doesn't have a a good feel as fiesta. Verna may beat fiesta 1.6 in straight drag but it cannot beat it in handling and breaking. Plus fiesta 3rd gear is is a beast beats Verna easily.

P.S. I neither own a Verna nor a Fiesta 1.6
