Lol, sry, didn't see it. It was last week and since then I've done nothing but work on stuff, either car or deck. Some week off. Everything I had in the sale was sold, but most was junk anyway.

I will have a patio set for sale soon though, interested? One glass table, four nice chairs, no umbrella (destroyed in last winter somehow) but otherwise mint.

I'm pretty sure a good number of them would be able to. Heck, even my 540 could get close if I removed the 155mph speed limiter. A guy on one of the forums removed his limiter and got up to 190mph stock. The guy with the supercharged M3 I'm sure could do it too. Most of the corvettes, supra's, skylines, viper's...etc

I don't know man, that's some serious speed 320Km/h... Mind you I can do 210 in my 4 banger.. so Yeah i guess some of them can get up too 200..

Now I would pay to see these boys race nascar style:) That would rock!!

In this day and age 200mph isn't that hard to acheive when you consider plain family sedans are coming with 400hp from the factory, couple that with advances in aerodynamic properties, and you've got 200mph easy.

I think 200 KMH is no big deal but the magic 200MPH is still far away for most. Drag is not an easy thing to overcome. Geez, I had a C4 that I didn't take past 260KMH and it was downright scary at that speed....

I should have taken a video of the eta on jackstands with my wife revving it to 150kph while I was underneath touching a crayon to the driveshaft. That was safe.

Edit: and holy hell, when will the hockey end.

Seriously, I've only been in a few machines going that fast and the 540 was the only one that didn't feel out of control. I was amazed at how quiet it was too at that speed.. probably a good indicator of the aero and why it can go so fast!

carjoe

I can't say the car made it scary but at that speed, the lines in the middle are solid, trees are a blur, traffic gets close way fast and the next cop trap is literally seconds away. I scared myself...

I hit the limiter on my 540 and then proceeded to stand on the brakes to a near stop. My brother's arms and head flew out in front of him like he was a rag doll; it was awesome.

Maybe it was the fact I had so much adrenaline in my brain at that point, but everything seemed like slow motion to me. I saw a TV show recently about how stress and adrenaline can actually speed up your brain making events seem slower and giving you almost super human reaction times.. it was pretty cool!!

Yeah, I'd have to agree. When I first got the car I took it out at like 4am on a Sunday and cliped the limiter a couple of times and I was just amazed how stable it felt, and really didn't 'feel' like you were going that speed until you picked a point on the horizon and by the time you picked the point you'd already passed it:D

When I first took Rob out in it, I accelerated from an on-ramp, and he said to me "what are we doing like 130...140?" Then he looked over and realized we were doing 200...and was blown away because he honestly had no idea.

The brakes too are just phenominal, when you stand on them, it slows so fast, but it's like an effortless stop, not panicky at all. Just like a space ship type whirring sound as it slows down.

Haha, that's so true.. between that and the oil cooler pump or something that goes on hot days near idle, my swedish buddy who was over hear said he loved my 540 'because it was like a UFO or something.'

I hit 180 mph once on the straigtaway in an M5. Of course, I was playing Gran Turismo 3 at the time...... :D
