Drove 110mph, I know compared to most of you thats not much but again I didnt have my license, the car wasnt that great (95 Cavalier), and I didnt have my temps either, my mom didint know I took it soo didnt want to go to the all powerful 120 and mess up the engine, it was already burning enough...

the speedometer only went up to 130 but I had it probably a half inch over that so I'll guess 135 with 1500 RPM left but no more acceleration.

170 mph in the car (Lambo) and 183 mph on my bike (Yamaha R1).

The car has more to give, but I just need to find a long enough road, devoid of other traffic.

Oh momma I love speeeed
Yeah, the German Autobahn rocks! Lots of parts of the German highways have no speed limit, go as fast as you could!

The fastest I made with my Opel Corsa A aka Vauxhall Nova was 185 km/h and that car has only 45 hp!

And I drove the new BMW Z4 with the 3.0l engine, kicked it to 250 km/h. You can´t go fast with it 'cause the speed is limited by BMW to avoid accidents etc.
