My first 240 did a whopping 117, once, and hit the hard cut and i decided not to do that again.

My old 528i did 120-130ish once in a long empty stretch of i89 at about 2am, was driving to Burlington from Concord NH (160 mile trip), good song came on, wasn't paying attention, just happened to look down and notice.

My WRX is limited to 140, but ive only hit 110, on the straight at NHMS.

My current 240 tops out at speed limit+4mph. Its bright red and loud as fk, no need to draw any more attention.

I try to top out everything I own.

Civic si ran out of steam at 145ish
BMW hit limiter at 155
07 ninja 600 did 169 according to speedily and I let off LOL
Z1000 gearing only lets it do about 156, but it gets there real quick

All on closed course of course

I topped my WRX out at 130 something once

My S14 has been over 100 but the speedo doesn't work and the GPS stops at 99

My tuck barely breaks 70... and that's downhill with a tailwind.

Highway driving in that means the pedal is to the floor in 4th the whole ride and I have to downshift to 3rd and move right on the inclines

Lets see here...
ga16i N13 110-115 PEAK (80 with the targa tops off)
ca18de N13 125-130
my det has been 130+ but not a whole lot past there, still solid and easy to drive that fast but i start to run outta revs, 5k at 100 or so...

my echo has trouble getting past 80 without me losing patiance and letting off :P

never really pegged out any other car i've owned, i dont get super excited about triple digits and highway runs.

I've only taken the 240 to the stock ECU's limit. The Z has gone 15X something a couple times, but not lately. There's no additional safety equipment and that **** is scary.

5200rpms in 5th with 4.09s whatever that is.
my 240 is faster then my G, but it sure feels like 100-150 happens a lot faster in the G. prob just feel from the sorter gears.
