    Did that yesterday in my 206 there was still some revs left... worryingly...

    Cornering was VERY unstable at that speed. It frightened the hell out of me, so I slowed down...

    With a 6th gear and twin turbos, I will be unstoppable.

    I, on the other hand, barely noticed it...

    210km/h twice, once here on the motorway, and the second time this summer in the motorway from Rome to Milan.

    Damn.

    It was fun for me. 15" wheels should sort my stability, but screw with my ride quality I'm tempted to go for the 16" Peugeot Nimrod alloys.

    Oh yeah- we're coming to Barcelona on the 16th of February- PM me if you want to meet up.

    So you're from Edinburgh and drive an Alpine A610? Are you sure not some schizophrenic alter ego of our good friend Matra et Alpine?

    Nah, looks like Matra doesn't have split personality disorder after all.

    This is his - http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/forum...achmentid=7315

    IIRC it was the one that was 'blown up' in the half-assed BBC soap opera Eldorado.

    Still, there can't be many A610 drivers in Edinburgh, bit of a coinkydink.

    Audi R8

    I did 285 kph in an R8 two months ago on the autobahn (A59) between Duesseldorf and Cologne. Fantastic car and incredible traction with the awd...;

    well, i don't normally drive like this, but on one occasion, on a long straight deserted road, i took an old holden premier (1970 or 71 model - i can't remember which) up to an indicated speed of just over 90mph - it started to shake rather alarmingly and it looked like i was going to run out of road, so i slowed down at that point.....

    100 mph (160.93 kph), 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham.
    There was plenty of reserve power and I would have liked to have taken it up to 110 or 120 mph, but I was already taking a chance going 100 mph on a local freeway.
