My max speed in a ground vehicle was 155 KMPH in a Scorpio CRDe.
About 850 KMPH in the air -Commercial aircraft.
And at Sea ? 36 knots (66.67 KMPH ground equivalent) on an Indian Naval ship on the high seas !

I reached a top speed of 130 kmph in my carb esteem running on LPG & with only the primary valve functioning. I know that it does not matter for the LPG, but it did the same speed on petrol too. Otherwise, i have reached a comfortable 165 & could not go further no matter what i did except throw myself out for weight reduction sake.

230kmph in my not so stock baleno on a recent TBHP drive. Here is a still I managed from the video my co-passenger captured. Elantra behind me showed 220 (speedo read) and I was pulling away from the elantra until my clutch started to slip.



PS: Sorry for the poor quality of the pic. Its actually taken from a video captured from my phone camera.

Cool

while mclaren was doing 230, I managed to touch 140+ on one stretch and still had 70% throttle to go but then decided to control and go back to 120-130 which is the speed I was on throughout in the interest of safety

My santro xing erlx is all stock except for 185/60/R13 80H yokohamas on aftermarket alloys.

I've heard people doing 160kmph on santros!!

I have done 160 kmph on a downward-sloping stretch on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway in my old Santro. On smooth level road, my car does 145-150 kmph. I have stock-size tubeless tyres on 5J alloys. In your case I think the wider tyres will detract a little bit from top speed.
