there was a thread about this along time ago where people posted thier top speeds. I want to say it was somewhere in the high 130's I can tell you it will do 132 for sure and I think it had more but I had to get off at an exit so I slowed. before I get flamed about it... No I was not joy riding I was on my way to the emergancy room going down the highway at about 2am which was a ghost town. After I left i checked the Garmin GPS which tracks the top speed from the last reset. results 132. I do not recomend anyone try to do this.

219km/h or 136mph speedo reading. Hit it 3 or 4 times. Not a good idea but the car feels really solid even at those speeds! Little bit of wind noise through the window seams.

That humming sound feels like it comes from some were in the front wheels after 125mph.

With out having your ecu all dolled up it's 125... I couldn't go any faster and I tried...trust me!! Lol
Maybe Canadian versus American is a little different but I haven't touched my ecu. When I did that my car was bone stock. Not even window tint. Lol

And crock, I didn't notice a hum but then again I was kinda focused on what I was heading towards at Mach F***-off rather than slight sounds... I just noticed wind noise cause it was right beside me.
