115

I shifted into a leisurely 5th at 115 racing a couple youngns in an Acura 3.2tl. Might have been through curves on a 4lane. Might have been at 5pm. Might have started in traffic. I'll never tell. had NO clue I was going that fast. immediately backed out, i'd already trounced them.

I haven't found enough clear road to really wind it up yet.

I've had it up to 140 on open hiway ... was hoping to reach the limiter, but ran out of road (ie: traffic) ... it sure does take a long time to get back to 75 when coasting down from 140 !!!!

Anyone else notice that when you get her running and put it in neutral this car will roll/coast a long way?

Be sure to be careful, though. An accident at 140, and there wouldn't be enough left of you to fill a shoe box!:handball:

Lol

The 05's will do way over 125, with the limiter the v6 will do 115, w/o it it will do around 130-140 with enough road! The GT will do over 140 with the limiter, i think it is 147 limited though. Hate to break it to you!!!!!

LOL

That is if you were serious with that stupid comment!, if not LOL

135 and climbing...but then a semi went by in the opposite direction and with the turbulence from that the hood looked like it was going to fly off and the car felt like it was on marbles:happyhapp , I thought while this is an awfully well built car I don't know if it's nice enough to risk 140 +. Suffice to say it's got more top end than I will ever use:kooky: .

125

open road on the way to work on a cool morning. it doesn't take long. 4th gear to 120 and shift into fifth. it doesn't even feel like 120. My wife never realised we were doing 100 mph the other day. she had her head down reading something, and I inched the speedo up in 5th gear. looked over at her and she was none the wiser, till i told her and she was like "wow, it is so smooth".

I have also noticed the 05 will coast forever. I have gotten my MPG over 30 by coasting down a good size hill after gassing up.

Top speed so far was 125 MPH, hood flapping all over. Redline in 3rd was just over 100 MPH. This thing is like a hot wheels car, coasts forever. I sometimes push in the clutch about 1/2 mile from my off ramp and have lost only 15 mph in speed. Great for the gas mileage, sucks if a cop is coming up from behind. I guess that is what the e-brake is for.

I got up to 100mph twice on the freeway here, but ran into traffic. It didn't really feel that fast, since most everybody else was doing 80mph!
