I've heard that a Dinan (not supercharged) car can reach >186mph indicated and a stock car can get to 179.9mph by GPS.

I looked at getting some time at bruntingthorpe airfield to try it out. 2 mile straight section but it seems when they hire for joint use they split the track in half. I will get back to them again and see what's possible... otherwise it's a trip to Germany!

I remember reading that the Dinan S3 topped out at 191mph. It was the red one Steve had which later sold on ebay. If anyone has gone beyond that on an e39 chassis please post. I'm happy going 150 in mine feeling like an ordinary car would feel standing at a red light.

Welcome RustyRusty. What a fantastic car you have there ... looks epic!

Funnily enough I know the previous owner of your car through the Whats App group. If you DM me i'll add your number to the group. Would be great to get a few E39 M5's together soon
