Obviously no sane person should be going that fast on any road in the US but if I were to go to a track with a long enough straight, isn't that limit pretty low?

Are the numbers they report in TG only for Europe?

Can anyone shed some light on this please?
I dont know about new Foci,but my 2005 Focus had a top speed of 110mph.

Sometimes, I see cops with their backs turned writing tickets. When I drive by I can see them stick their heads up,and sniff the air,catching a whiff of exhaust and burning rubber,the crimson smell of speed,telling them a Race Red Mustang is somewhere nearby!
