Hey!
Farbod which cars do you have? what models?

I raced an SL 55 AMG on the road a few days ago! i went 140, but the SL just kept going to 155, and i didnt want to push it because it was a crowded motorway, although people were moving out the way for us. I was ahead towards the end, but boy the SL's are quick!
The managing director of the company I am a non-executive director of just got a titanium SL55 AMG too. If i could afford the £96,000 tag then I would be tempted. Beautiful!

According to the state trooper, I was doing 168 mph in Camaro...thank goodness for knowing the trooper. I was on a long straight back country highway in Texas.

The bad news came while I slowing down to get my lecture; I blew a heater hose and had to call a tow truck.

something similar happened to me and my friend in his 650 hp turbo

we came home from a porsche drivers training from "Boxberg" (= bosh test tracks for esp)

we drove 200kmh and saw an sl in front of us.
we batlled until 310kmh and he went to the right. we passed easily and went 339 yea it´s damn fast!

Re: Re: The Fastest you've driven?

Well, I originally posted that 95 (or maybe 98) was the fastest I'd gone in my current Grand Prix, but I had it up to 100mph the other night. Then I ran out of straight road.

Well, my oldsmobile shuts down at 127 and I got it to the point where it slowed itself down, so I guess the fastest Ive gone is 127.

I've gotten my TA up to 115... I'd like to get her up to about 140/150 but I won't because I've gotten so many speeding tickets already that I can't afford another one. BTW, the speed limit was 35 where I was going 115...
