    Actually, I think in a really old article of Motortrend they took the limiter off and went close to 200. It was possible, but I don't remember what speed they went to.

    I read of 330 kmh, so 204 mph. and I guess it could be, but I wouldn't do such speed in such car.

    You don't trust German engineering?

    oh no, I can trust them, but a sedan right now, and IMHO, isn't the best car to do such speed. I don't wanr to have a light and trembling steering wheel (probably it wouldn't tremble at all, which is even more scarring) and no down force at all. other wise, there wouldn't be anymore reasons to buy a true supercar. Even if the M5, for one, is the best super sedan, is developed from a standard 5 Series, no matter how good. I prefer cars that are born to do just a few things, but at the best of the possibility.
    I don't trust compromises, that's it
