I've pulled 220kmh on my 6, needed to take in more than, had some bad vortex separation going on (i.e my helmet was shaking back and forth so badly I was having trouble seeing.)

nr Edinburgh, Whisky-soaked Scotland
125ish mph wasn't looking too hard at the speedo, around 200kph
30 degrees C and dry made the Scottish roads nice and sticky
A typical road THE best roads in the world ( not taken on this trip - but very pretty


Loved this tho ...... keeps all those slow-pokes out of the way !!!

Last time I was there, I watched somebody haul a caravan up the Bealach na Ba...
We kept waiting for him to get stuck, but he topped out!

Oh, and top speed to date?

130+MPH, VW Golf TDi ESTATE... I kept waiting for the limiter to kick in. It didn't. It felt utterly planted at that speed, too.

A5 dual carriageway out of Telford heading to Shrewsbury.

About 160mph, in Dad's R. Its supposedly limited to 155 like most sportscars, but the needle went off the clock and the revs were still rising, so i think 165 is more accurate.
It made me laugh, considering its a Volvo .

240km/h in the 3000GT. It was an experience. Though since then I've been pulled over for speeding and I'm a little scared to attempt again given our rather harsh speeding laws.

What about 'P'-platers? Find me a driving test centre that includes this on their test route!
