145 mph isuzu impulse turbo 7000 rpm standard shift. if you can get ahold of one of they cars there fun to drive, rear wheel drive handle like a dream but if its raining or snowing you have to slowley pull out or your just spin out even at idle.

As a passenger the fastest I have traveled was 130 in a Renualt Feago (think that's how you spell it)

Was pretty awesome...

Also when I was with my Uncle one time we tested the 0-60 of a Saturn....8.5 seconds...was awesome...

My '86 CRX tops out at about 108mph. But while test driving a Mini Cooper S I got up to 126 before the dealer told me to slow down. And while test driving a Sentra SE-r Spec V I got up to 140 on the highway, needless to say, that dealer was...well, less than happy.

209 km/h in a stock 2004 Holden Commodore VY Series II
It was in the Northern Territory (Aussie Outback) on highways with no speed limits, so I wasn't doing anything I shouldn't.
