    ^^ For me likewise around 230 kp/h or maybe a bit more, back in late 1985 with my VK HDT Commodore. Very stable, couldn't hear the motor at all, just the wind rushing over the roof. Speedo pegged out at 200 but the tacho was showing 6250 .. 1250rpm into the red



    A friend once had the speedo needle of his 1955 Beetle right off the dial and pointing completely vertical, as in south. This was down a BIG hill in neutral, probably around 85-90mph (indicated) and btw on 135mm retreads! The speedo in those old Veedubs only goes to 70mph but he got the needle aiming straight down at the 'P' in MPH

    130 mph in my brand new Jaguar XK Convertible. It was bloddy freaky. The nose began to lift, and that made me rather uneasy so i had to slow down. Since then i've never gone past 100mph in my Jag.

    wow... nose started to lift 130mph...
    And yet the top speed is limited to 155mph...
    I think there may be something wrong with your jag

    What color do you got it in?
    got any pics?

    Fastest I got was 150 mph in my tsi Talon. Needed a BIG hill to reach it though!

    Tho i wasent driving i went 180mph in a 94 Toyota MR2, On the way to California from Vegas. The Needle was completly buried passed 160 tho. Suprisingly enough, the ride was smooth. But the engine sits right behind you so it gets kinda loud. @_@

    I did 135mph once in my 350Z, it was ****in scary on the parkway, pretty stable tho. ive also done 117mph in my flying brick (lincoln aviator) which was much scarier than the time in the Z.
