With mere (by today's standards) 400 hp, the top speed is m ore about bragging rights than a useable/applicable capability.
At the time the car came out, I remember reading in 2001 that someone had gone over 300 kph in Germany and I couldn't believe it.
How things have changed over time.
Other than the absolute top speed, the car does go up to mid triple digits very quickly, which is the usable part of performance of this beast.
Although I have never been over 100-110 myself (takes too long to go faster for my taste) I have seen videos of people hitting 130-140 fairly quickly.
I dont see anything I said in my post that would be considered thread crapping.I understand and I have set the cruze at 150 in my 540 6 just to say I did, stop thread crapping. This thread is about bragging rights even though it is not the fastest thing out there.
Exo did 309km/h GPS with his ex-M5...
Yep. I've done 309km/h GPS downhill. It did about 304km/h in the flat.308 309...probably with some help of wind and downhill, other way they probably wouldn't hit 300 but yes this car is capable of going 295-300 km/h both ways
Oh wao -Did not know stock M5 diff was geared for 200+ - good to know
