If we're talking speedo readings - 196mph, with quite a bit left, from the GT3. Official top speed 193, but the gearing allows you to hit a true 207mph at the redline if you can find a nice downhill bit. Apart from the mind boggling closing speeds to other vehicles (such as a German police car doing about 50mph! - they waved to us and smiled as we passed... only in Germany! Very Happy ), it was quite a relaxed experience as the car was very stable and secure.

I got her up to 69mph, then she clicked onto 70mph. Very satisfying.

Hmmm... So 151 mph is OK, but faster is risking your licence? Question

Those sort of speeds in the UK are not clever with the majority of cars around you being driven by people that believe nobody will be coming up behind them any faster than 72 mph!

Also, it wouldn't be the first time someone has been successfully prosecuted for something they put on the Internet. Keep it legal (or keep it quiet!).

Can I suggest you go on the 'Ring trip or something if you really want to find out how fast it (or you) will go?

It was acutally in a different country.... i wont say which.. as soon as I came back to england it was on cruise at 75mph... (which in real terms is prob 71mph) as the speedos are generally off.... Attempting anything over 80mph in this country will more than not, get you in trouble... I did keep getting passed by mondeo man though!!!!!
