Yea that's about right I'm guilty of taking my car up to 110 and it didn't really go any where after that (it was an empty hwy) Click image for larger version

Actually not sure when the speed limiters came into the picture. I can tell you from one of my two idiot experiences at high speeds on the freeway that the fox computers are definitely NOT limited in any way shape or form. A SN95 front end gets EXTREMELY floaty going past 130-140... I should probably stop talking now. This was also in 2004 so I'd like to think 10 years of 0 points and what I like to think as safe driving has proved I'm not a total moron.

All it takes is a 1/4 inch of throttle in 6th to reach those speeds (145MPH); 3.42 rear gear, 0.5:1 6th gear, about 340rwtq and 330rwhp at that RPM (not including the ram air effect) and about a .31 drag coefficient.

The car would only require about 220 rwhp to achieve that speed with combined losses of aerodynamics, drivetrain and tires, so I would say it's roughly possible.

Also consider that a 2013 BMW 335i xDrive gets 18 MPG @ 124 MPH (13.0L/100KM @ 200KM/H) and has the same drag coefficient, I don't think I am too far off.
On an all out run at Atco where I reset the MPG for the runs. I averaged 4.9 MPG in a 1/4 mile.

140 isn't all that fast. It's fun with the top down though.

On a serious note what's up with the gender hate on here? My wife has had her car to 150+. She's just as capable of it as anyone else.

Lol far from a liberal. Just not of the mindset my woman's only job is to be pregnant and barefoot cooking my dinner in the kitchen. Just as capable of pushing the skinny pedal as a guy.

She's scared of the Cobra but does drive a gt everyday. Enjoys the lx just as much too.
