    Default What's the highest MPH you've ever cranked up in your car/ Motorcycle?

    Was talking to my brother about 'the good old days' earlier and he mentioned the time when we were going along the autobahn in Germany in my then new 7 series BMW in the early hours of a morning when this boy racer past us in some hot hatch or other and must have been doing around a ton. There was no other traffic about so I decided to put my foot down a bit and passed hatchback harry at around 160MPH a bit further down the road, I bottled it at that point and slowed down again. Fair play to my car, it still had some more if I had wanted.

    I imagine some of you guys must have a memory or two of getting that speed rush lol.

    On the autobahn again I was testing out my old Toyota Aristo (2JZ-GTE) which was modded and we'd just fitted a HKS speed delimiter to remove the Jap 180kph limit. TomTom was showing 170+ - have to admit it felt seriously floaty at that speed though! Think Germany is getting rid of a lot of the unlimited sections these days though.

    These days I'm old with kids and don't ever go above 75mph in a dirty derv

    Was that because you were high, had stolen someone's car and was holding a gun to your passengers head?

    Circa 1993 I had a Lotus Turbo Esprit SE (1989 model) that was overtaken on the M6 by a 1.9 205 GTI. My mate said are you having that? Which obviously as an idiotic 24 year old spurred me on, the next thing I knew we were doing just under 150mph in a piece of fibreglass. Thankfully we were approaching a services which gave me the sense to slow down. I honestly thought we was going to take off.

    The 205 was left behind at about a ton, being driven by 2 young ladies.

    The E35 autobahn from Basel where I live upto Freiburg in Germany has several unrestricted portions. I've taken our X5 40d upto about 160 mph with no issues. However there is always some cunt behind you flashing you to move over, the Germans are nuts

    Back in the late 80's I did over 140mph in my RS Turbo, not quite sure the full speed as the speedo cable snapped at that point as it only went upto 140mph on the dash and the needle was bending.......ahh the good ole days.

    I think when I worked on the milk we got the float up to 14mph. Fuck me that was scary! I dunno what was rattling more, the bottles or my teeth!

    i got pulled over in the algarve at the toll booth of a lovely new empty road i had just driven down in my megane r26, they had me clocked at 231kph but the dash had me going faster at times. they gave me a 120 on-the-spot fine, i dare say that might have been a bit more servere in the UK!!!
    i have hit 160+ on a fireblade, which is a bit more hairy than in a car!!!

    155 MPH on a ZX7R (not surprisingly!). It was summer, 5AM, on an empty clear, dry, straight dual carriageway with excellent visibility. Scared me enough not to do it again.

    Thanks to ZX7R

    180ish on my old Aprillia Mille on the bit of motorway between the M4 Magor and the old Severn bridge. Cant really be too sure about speed as my speedo had packed up but my mate on his ZX10 next to me said he backed off at 180. We were having a play with a guy in a Ferrari.
    Frightens me to think how quick we used to ride our bikes a few years back! We've all stopped now we have kids.

    Mine as 145 in my Supra MK4 on the A11.. I didn't push it any further as I knew the guy I got it from had done 165 when he took it to Le Mans, which he did annually.
    He was a Toyota mechanic specialising in Supras and very adept in playing with the chipset parameters..

    Current 1.6 Alfa 147 - 110mph
    Previous 2.0 Alfa 156 - 130mph
    Previous Fiat Barca - 130mph
    Various fast Fords back in the 90's - about 140mph (my old RS and and XR3i)
    Renaullt 5 GT Turbo about 90mph (It was fucked)
    Astra GTE - about 130mph

    To be honest anything over 100 and I shit my pants. 1) for fear of getting pulled and 2) for fear of other people

    Mate of mine had a stage 3 Ford Sierra Cosworth that did near 160mph. Terrifying car.
