although limited in power with only 120 hp under the hood, it gets a respectable speed in the long stretched highways.

180-200 km/h (110-120 mph) in my father's old 1993 BMW 325is somewhere in Denmark. That was many years ago when we lived in Europe and it may be impossible to go that fast without being caught anymore. Great little car though wish we still had it

[QUOTE=civic_ferio;746995]ok, scratch my previous post cos last night i did 220km/h in my baby... Was playing VERY nicely with a Lancer Evo 8....


i find this very hard to believe. Considering, my previous vehicle (MY00 lude VTIR) could just click over 215-220 maxed out(maybe a few more k's with a taliwind)tacho said 240 but i'd need a saltlake. I reckon your tacho is out or there was a ****en hurricane behind the car. A VT holden struggles to get up to 200 let alone a little civic. Look i may be very wrong, and i apologise if so but i cant see it happening.

Also, have done a leisurely 200 in the rex, felt like it could go to 240 - but whats the point, im not in that much of a rush.

i got the speed up to 200 and then there is a HUGE downhill which got me to 220 at 6800rpm, so that's as fast as my gearbox will allow me to go (limiter is at 7300rpm)... and my tacho is very accurate, i've tested it...

and anyway, my mate in an identical car did the same thing...

Hit 160kmh (just) on the bike, about 1000rpm short of 15000rpm limiter, but there was one hell of a wind and wouldn't pull anymore

Without any wind (and if I do my jacket right up so the wind doesn't go down the back of it) it should hit about 170kmh I think. But considering it's a naked it's pretty good.

considering we are comparing two different cars i would expect a 190kw-225kw engine to hit 220k without much trouble. Standard VT's with the 3.8 dont do 220 comfortably.
