Max Speed=176mph

(this is the fastest someone ever took the car on the test strip, they literally ran out of track, a theorectical top speed of 250mph)

The theoretical top speed was 180 MPH, which was not quoted on billboards when it went on sale in the UK because of marketing, only the 0-60 MPH time was quoted to show it's power.

Radish?

Difficult question. The ?official? top speed is 176 MPH. Several motoring magazines of the time attempted to verify this, but there aren?t any runways long enough in the UK to do it on. And no-one in there right minds would publish an article claiming to have done 170+ MPH on public roads. Rumor has it that top speed is governed by the rev. limiter in 5th gear, and this would give a top speed of about 187 MPH.

if you remove the limiter it was supposed to do 250mph, no one has ever confirmed this.

I'd like to take this opportunity to confirm that is not the case. The removal of a rev limiter is not going to allow another 63mph

well i wouldn't be suprised if it could, some dude on the web has one with a superchip giving it 550WHP and it could do 202mph, so removing a rev limiter could make it go even faster.

Athlonix: Ah, but a superchip is not standard. Sure, you could probably make it do 250 if you spent enough money on mods, but you could do that for a lot of cars
