ANSWERS: 100
  • 113, fastest my "governer" would let me i go faster but it is not safe.....
  • Hah 104... wasn't even suppose to be driving, lucky no cops =þ
  • About 89. I own a P.T. Cruiser and it pulls to 82-84. You're up there before you know it.
  • Only about 70mph on the motorway. I've only ever had an old VW Polo and even at that speed she sounded like she was going to fall apart. I just used to avoid going on the motorway if I could.
  • 146 mph, in a corvette.
  • 128 in my '96 Chevy 1/2-ton (hit the top speed limiter/governer)
  • I hit 140 mph several times in my 1990 Ford SHO, no sweat, had room for more at the throttle, but for safety I let off, I'm not confident of the aerodynamics of the car. It really was fun eating camaros and trans ams with this 4 door business class car. (well, I did have a few goodies under the hood and a chip in the ecm. Hehe
  • 140 Kph, in an old Gemini, I was took much of a sook to drive any faster (even though on a highway)!.
  • I was involved in a couple high speed pursuit in Florida and reached speeds that were over 140 in my 2002 crown vic. Patrol car. (((140 is all the speedometer would register.)))
  • 95mph and I really shouldn't have, because I was driving my old piece of shit car and it probably could have fallen apart.
  • 137 mph 67 couger. got the ticket to prove it. stupidity that is.
  • 165 give or take 3-4 mph....in a red 1966 Ferrarri on the Le Mans straightaway in France. Not during the race, just in the summer with a French wealthy friend who owned the car. Not another soul on the road during that 3-4 minute or so ride. I was abit shaky when we stopped finally. I think he was also.
  • Somewhere between 95-100 in my 92 Camry. It felt amazing; for a 14 year old mid-size sedan, that thing absolutely tears up the road. I think I got my 93 Buick Century up to 90 on a commute to work one morning. That was probably not the best thing for that car...I totally could have blown the engine out...
  • 120 mph on the slab, then I ran out of petrol. Rang up the motorway service and they sent a police car. The cops took me for some petrol doing 110mph. I said to one of them, "Jeez, that was fast." The driver said. "You get use to it."
  • Boy do I feel like a wimp! I don't even think I have ever broken 90 MPH...of course I've never broken my neck either!
  • 119 mph in an 1994 Toyota 4-Runner... not smart, but I was 17 years old... and it was fun. I just put the pedal to the floor to freak out my friend, then, before I really noticed how fast I was going, the car made me slow down. But, my friend was sufficiently scared, so I had accomplished my task.
  • I've never broken 90 because our roads aren't really set up for high speeds. No long, straight, level stretches of road here. However, I don't slow down much in the corners, so I can hold my own against 'faster' cars.
  • 75 mph Downhill With the wind behind me ....my car is c**p!
  • 110mph, I was driving from Canada to Colorado, passing through Montana at night, back when they didn't have a speed limit (just posted signs that asked drivers to observe a reasonable and prudent speed). My son (age 8) was curious to see what 100 was like and I was curious to see what my little corsica would do. The moon was full, the road was straight and no other cars for miles. Yes, it was a lot of fun!
  • I had my little ol' Escort up to about 115 some years ago.
  • 108 ish is my first car a 1977 Toyota Corona sedan.
  • Much Much Much too fast i was driving a BMW sports and before I realised I was doing double the speed limit on a freeway. It was exhilerating, but I do have a heavy foo and generally do try to watch my speed. I certainly do not want to sound as if I am advocating speeding.
  • I never really had a car capable of doing any 3 figure speeds without exploding during my boy-racer years, so I never raced above 100... I did hit three figures though, but only on downslopes! Now my car is slightly better (still not a speedy gonzalez, but newer at least) but I have learnt to be a little more careful so I've hardly taken above 90, though it could go some more.
  • 201 in an Audi on the Autobon in Germany. This is a road with no speed limit (until you approach a city where there are digitally lighted signs with speed limits that can change as the traffic warrants(and you can get a ticket from a camera if you do not heed-except rentals.) I started thinking, wow that AUSFART is such a long road, as there were so many exits for it, but then I realized ausfart meant exit. hee hee! See how stupid I am, I went 201! I started calling it the adrenelin bon becuase if you went like 55 people would come up so fast in your rear view mirror, like they were going to hit you, and there would be a truck in front of you going 55 mph. I was glad to get off of there.
  • 90-ish, and it freaked me out so much it only lasted a few seconds.
  • 127 MPH. 1977 Ranchero with 400 cubic inches of Edelbrock equipped, badass V-8. This is no guess using the factory speedo. This was verified using my GPS.
  • 190 km/h. in a magna bahaa good times
  • 125 mph Down the Higashi Kanto Expressway from Narita to Central Tokyo. Highly illegal and dangerous on such a crowded expressway. I wasn't the one driving, it was my American friend, in his souped up Nissan Skyline.
  • 65mph on a bicycle, 145mph on a motorcycle, 135mph car, RX-7 not on a highway Mach .87 in a Jet
  • About 140 in my 1969Z28 on I5 north of San Deigo
  • Somewhere in the range of 110-120ish in a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500, racing another Ram. Hard to tell, was busy watching the road. I was damn lucky that the cop pulled him over and not me - last time I pull that stunt.
  • 146 in my mom's vette with the top down....had to slow down for the exit!
  • Just a little story of stupidity, however it is true. It was several years ago and I was driving my 75 Camaro over to one of my sister's for a family gathering. It's pretty far out in the country and I saw my little brother coming up behind me on his KZ1000. I decided not to let him pass so I brought it up to 105 mph. I was pretty much focused on the road ahead when I hear a sound like a gun going off. It was my little brother and 'no kidding' he passed me like I was standing still. At the party later we just looked at each other, agreeing that what we just did was pretty stupid.
  • Going fast even my grand mom can do that. What matters is the skill. Where i live we have narrow roads, the roads suckes in general and there are lots of turns. I dont like i say this cause i always blame my self for doing it, but i always manage to go to my village from where i live in 15-20 minutes when all the rest do it in 1 hour. i just cant go slow...
  • Much Much too fast and i cannot say more than that
  • 115 MPH,...then for some reason, my car wouldn't accelerate any more. It started accelerating again when I got back down around 60 MPH. I'm not reckless, my little brother cut his finger off, and I was on the highway trying to get him to the hospital. He was really scared and kept telling me to go faster.
  • 105 mph coming down 95 south (FL) on January 1st. Got tired of being in the middle of a bunch of yahoos playing bumper tag..........
  • Maybe 70? I am not very adventerous on the road.
  • I went a whole 20 miles an hour (ooh get me, ever the speeder). Then again, strictly speaking, I should never of even sat in a drivers seat of a car, let alone driven one
  • 155 mph. not violating the law. Enforcing it. Trans Am was going 124 mph.
  • Let me tell you a little story. I was on a weekend at my aunt's house in the country, and having a miserable time. I saw that a bunch of my older cousins were taking a trip down to the cemetary a few miles down the road in my uncle's old pickup, so I decided to tag along. Anyway, they hung out there for almost an hour, getting completely pissed out of their minds on a bottle of scotch my cousin Dustin had seemingly pulled out of thin air. By the end of it, they were all too drunk to even get behind the wheel of the truck, let alone take it the whole two miles back to the house.(I hadn't had any, I'm not overly fond of scotch.) So, of course, I end up having to round them all up into the back of the truck, and make sure that we didn't leave behind anyone who had passed out in the grass, and drive the truck back to the house.(Not really that big of a deal, I had driven that far before with my dad in the car.) Anyway. About halfway down the blacktop road leading back to the house, I'm siezed by one of my lunatic impulses, and decide to just point the nose straight, and gun it. I ended up going something like 85 for five seconds or so, and scaring the shit out of all my drunken cousins. Needless to say, all my cousins now hate me for that.
  • 188mph in a nissan skyline and have the court summons and a lenghly ban to prove it grown out of that stage now and drive a 3 series bmw which could easily do 150 + to nervous incase i get caught again and most of the time kids and wife are with me
  • Very Very illegally...129mph...the high patrol caught us...*Shame*!!!
  • 106 mph :) It was a little scary.
  • 80 mph when I passed but I went right down to 70 mph after that. I like driving the speed limit.
  • my dads gone like 150 w/ me in the car and that was pretty intense
  • My personal car I own now, 127, with abit more to go. But I didn't want to chance crapping out part of the engine on a car that is not meant to be driven as fast as it will go.
  • 131 mph in an 87 Chevrolet 1/2 pickup with a hot 5.7L 350 in it...at least that what speed the ticket had listed on it.
  • You wouldn't believe how I actually got my 2000 Kia Sephia up to 130MPH...I thought it would explode but she hung on. Rest In Pieces.....
  • I'd have to say 142 MPH in a 2000 honda accord v6 sedan (no mods) (rushing to get home at 5am)
  • 178 in a 1970 Vette... Northern Maine is fun to drive in!
  • Much much too fast. i will not say how fast just well over the speed limit. I have a heavy foot.
  • My grand am governed out at 108 and my tahoe at 99
  • 2001..IN ITALY `120 WAS THE NORM MY BOYFRIEND OF THE TIME DROVE plus they all drive within 3 feet of each others bumpers...Needless to say I was to freaked out to drive so I remained the passenger. But the night I flew in back to usa I got in my car (it was 2am) and I drove 120 down the empty streets...a mile later I said oh my God I am going to go to jail for this speed. So I slowed down. It was exilerating but a little freaky.
  • I drove very quickly for an extended time the day I got my 63 t-bird (390) back after a rebuild. They were not happy about the re-rebuild. What break-in period!! I have done other equally dumb things, that's why I keep bandaids in the garage.
  • 120 mph (as high as the speedometer could show)... slowed down in tim to be ticketed for 99. Yikes!
  • 129. i was going down a no car freeweay. I was huring to go to my job.(luckely i didn't get pulled over by a cop)
  • Well, the radar said I was doing 78 mph and it cost me $263.00.
  • 160...
  • Duplicate
  • never drove of my life... to young...
  • I now realize it was incredibly stupid, but I once drove 125 MPH to make it home before my curfew.
  • It was on vacation some years ago, in Texas near the Mexico border -- flat road, straight, no curves, & no cars around -- just desert, i.e. cactus & sagebrush .... you get the picture ... I always drive close to the speed limit as a cautious safety-conscious driver ... ****BUT for just a few seconds, I stepped on the gas to %$^& mph. I don't recommend it though. Better safe than sorry. The nearest hospital would have been quite far away, & who knows when the next car would have come around.
  • I think the fastest was 225km/h - on a test track. Fastest on the open road was a smidge over 200km/h. I was pulled over by the police for speeding once. He said "Any reason for doing 130 in a 100 zone?" I answered "The gearbox keeps popping out of 5th above 180". He was still laughing as he issued the ticket...
  • I went 80-something down in Florida a couple of times, and I still got passed. The official speed limit was 70, btw.
  • 105 or so.
  • 145 on Long Island Expressway. Made it from Port Jefferson,Ny to 14th and 1st street, Lower Manhattan, in about 40 mins. (Usually a 1hr 15 min ride:-)In a 1991 lexus
  • 130mph in a 50mph speed zone!
  • 100 mph beofre I bottled it.
  • A hundred and ten and then I looked down and took my foot off the gas. Fast. I had no idea I was crusing that fast.
  • My '99 Buick Regal LS goes 108; my dad's '01 Cevy Silverado goes 99; my sisters o1 Chevy Lumina goes 105. All are governed to these speeds The top speeds of the Silvberado and Lumina were achieved without a license
  • 10mph. *shouts* Stop looking at me like that! I'm learning how to drive!
  • The cop said 78 mph.
  • you mean my scooter, right?
  • 90 it was awesome America needs a highway like tHe german autoban there is no speed limit
  • About 135. 1978 Z-28 Camaro, for the fun of it. I was young and stupid. I spent about $3,500 on the engine and it lasted about 700 miles before I burned a hole in one of the aluminum pistons and put a rod through the block. I went back to nearly stock engine and slowed down a bit.
  • around 150mph, in a 1995 BMW M3 with a 98 3.2L motor. Shortly before we realized that the road ended in a lake. Have I mentioned that BMW brakes are very very effective. we stopped about 20 feet short of the edge. I would not advise it.
  • In a car: 230kph (about 140mph) in a Series 4 Mazda RX-7, on a deserted open road somewhere that will remain nameless. Man that RX-7 was nice to drive. Didn't feel like I was going that fast - sensation was more like 140kph (90mph) On a mountain bike: 100kph, late at night down the side of a mountain (in my young and incredibly stupid days). It was a straight road with quite a nice downhill gradient. The posted speed limit was 60... So here's this idiot on a mountain bike, head down and bum up, overtaking cars down the side of the mountain...
  • 170 in the passenger seat of an 05 audi s4 without the limiter on a 2.4 mile straight by palmdale california. Me driving: 145 in an 06 Z06. Didnt even realise how fast I was going untill i shifted into 4th and checked the speedo. That one was a reality check!
  • 172 mph but it was on an autobahn.
  • 230 MPH on the autobahn.....
  • Fastest ever was in a 1979 trans am in 1985 147 mph was a passanger and had to change my pants when done!
  • 110 in a '99 Intrepid.
  • Probably 105. Scary.
  • A few years ago, I was on vacation (holiday for you Brits) on Prince Edward Island, Canada. The car I was driving was a 1993 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with a six speed manual transmission. I was driving along Route 12 on the northern shore near St. Peter's. I saw a jetty that stuck out into St. Peter's Harbor, with a paved access road along the top. It was approximately two miles long, and was perfectly straight. I drove out to the end of the jetty, and decided that it was a good place to try out that car. Straight road, with a nice cushion on each side (water) if I lost control, and most importantly, no place for the Mounties to hide a speed trap. It was a beautiful day, and I had the roof off of the Vette. I started going through the gears, accelerating as fast as the car would. I hit 100 MPH while still in third, and 130 in fourth. I shifted into fifth, still accelerating, when a newspaper I had on the passenger seat EXPLODED into the air around me. It sounded like a gunshot, and it completely blocked my view in every direction. I immediately started decelerating, and was able to stop while still on solid ground. I learned my lesson that time. If you are going to exceed 100 MPH, put the roof on - or make sure everything in the car is tied down! I'm not sure exactly what my top speed was, but I'm guessing it was around 140 MPH. Chevrolet says that the top speed for a standard 1993 Corvette is 144 MPH. They don't release that number for the ZR1. I would have to guess that it must be over 180 based upon my experience.
  • 120mph... I had just gotten a 1974 Mercedes 450SL and I wanted to test it out... It was a short road so I didn't want to push it further than that.
  • 142mph on a cbr900. that was as fast as i needed to go, they said it would do 170.
  • 166 before the radar caught me. Before he could turn on his lights I exited and sped back to work. To find him sitting in the lot waiting for me. I guess it wasn't that hard to figure out where a Dodge viper with a dealer plate would probably be going. Thank goodness the owner had a sense of humor and knew the cop. No ticket Just a "slow down son someone could get hurt"
  • 140 mph on Interstate 35 south of Oklahoma City. Brand new 1966 Dodge Charger. Lord I miss that car.
  • 135 miles per hour i was scared s#@$less but it was awsome
  • 113 in my '95 Isuzu Trooper. 113 in an SUV feels FAST.
  • I was driving from Baltimore to Norfolk, VA on I64. I looked at speedometer...and I was doing 85! I wasn't aware of it, it was too peaceful. I felt like I was the only one driving there...I was lucky the Highway Patrol wasn't nearby...
  • TWIN TURBO TOYOTA SUPRA WITH NOS, OVER 300 KM/H ON THE M1 FREEWAY, BRISBANE TO GOLD COAST AUSTRALIA LAST YEAR
  • 240 kph in a Nissan Cedric. In some countries in the middle east, the idea of following the speed limit doesn't exist! You go with the flow, usually way over the prescribed limit! But, on this deserted highway between cities late at night, I thought I'd see how fast I could go. I didn't go over 240 as at that time, I didn't know how fast I was really going (didn't understand how kph converted to mph).
  • 115 MPH in a 1971 340 Duster. Way back when I was a teenager and thought I was invincible.
  • I drive a Suzuki Hayabusa with several thousands of dollars invested in its motor/brakes/suspension etc, I've done 185(ish)MPH on the highway =)for a solid 15 minutes and crossed all of chicagoland lol........no serious!
  • 97 mph in my friends car, mine's a slooow POS, can hardly do 70 without dying.
  • I really don't know. I broke the speed cable in a Super Bee. And on a old 900 Kal: my eyes got so watered that I just about lost my site. P.S. This was all done back in the 70's. I don't have nothing today that would get over 80mph. Besides I could not afford the high cost in Gas now days. M.C.S.
  • It was over 120+ MPH [193+ Kph] (I buried the needle). The car was a 1972 Plymouth Satellite Sebring (318 cu.in.). I was 16 and I was trying to get back to town in time for work. Made it! Alive, and on time. (Thankfully. I wasn't as good a driver then as I am now.) I miss that car.
  • As a passenger in a car 140mph. Riding a motorbike myself 130mph
