129 Doesn't Feel Like 129
I'm probably going to take a little heat for this thread but, oh well. I was coming home from work a couple of days ago. It was about 2am on a back highway notorious for light traffic. So I decided to see what the old girl could give me.
First, I gotta say this is the fastest I've ever been as a driver. I've been close before but my previous cars just couldn't get there--if they could, it would have been a very scary experience. I down shifted into 5th at about 85. The torque, even at that speed, was impressive. My '12 was smoooth. The front end didn't lift. The steering wheel didn't shake. It literally felt like doing about 80--the only thing telling me I was going that fast were the lines on the road blurring together. I would have tried for a little more but there's a bend I didn't want any part of at 100+.
I'm impressed. I'm sure the cops aren't.
