Whats the fastest speed(in km/hr) you have ever driven your car?

My dad used to drive our Maruti 800 usually at speed of 40-60 km/hr. The fastest he have driven it was at 65 km/hr. Yeah he used to drive our car slowly and safely.

About 150kph. On an outback road in Australia. It was straight as anything.
144, my car shakes after that

[@6602,helenS] lmao.. I am the intoxicant

[@1199560,Jdanielb] Maybe I wouldn't pay attention to the speed because of you. 🌼

[@1204421,Bradrick123] oh it's highly illegal.. once you go a certain speed.. most cops dont want to bother... a chase might interfere with their life if it goes on to long

Not very fast. I don’t like to speed, max 130km maybe?
taehyun · 18-21, F
[@6602,helenS] minimum speed is 100km on the highway in nz, so you have to be over it! I was pulled over for being under, so I learned my lesson. I haven’t managed to drive a car in China though lol
Bradrick123 · 18-21, M
[@4143,taehyun] Wow thats very fast. I can't even drive a car yet even though I am 20 yrs old. But I don't feel bad about it because my dad's friend's son Abhishek dada is 27-28 age and even he didn't learn to drive.
taehyun · 18-21, F
[@1204421,Bradrick123] right? I was under the impression that 100 was that maximum, but I was pulled over for going 80 and apparently I was too slow. I should probably review the rules now that I’m back in my home country lol!
He might have anxiety about driving. I did for the longest time, but I had no choice because I needed a way to get to important conferences ages away from me.

90 km/h perhaps? Certainly not over 100 km/h. It's my sister's car.
Bradrick123 · 18-21, M
[@6602,helenS] I remember we went by Toyota Qualis somewhere and the driver was going at 90 km/h
helenS · 31-35, F
[@1204421,Bradrick123] At 90kmh the stopping distance is more than 100 m. 💀
Translation for you non-metric guys:
At 55mph the stopping distance is more than 110 yd. 💀
Rosey · F
About 75 miles/h on the motorway.
Steve42 · 51-55, M
108 mph. My rebuilt 1969 vw bug.

give me a car first
not a car, but 240kph on a bike racing another bike on the freeway, really really stupid
helenS · 31-35, F
[@446022,Bushmanoz] Yes – shame on you! 🤨
JMDUNNY · 36-40, M
Just over 100mph on M6
helenS · 31-35, F
[@6757,questionWeaver] There's an upper limit: the speed of light. 😑
[@6602,helenS] I was taking it easy
ninalanyon · 61-69, T
240 km/h
ninalanyon · 61-69, T
[@446022,Bushmanoz] Goodness me no! I have never ridden a motorbike and have no intention of ever doing so, especially at that speed! And I have never been to Australia.

It was on the autobahn between Hamburg and Bremen.
ninalanyon · 61-69, T
[@446022,Bushmanoz] Only just noticed that you actually did that! That must have been quite a thrill!
[@872096,ninalanyon] yeaj..i guess, it was really stupid. I looked over the screen to feel what it was like and my helmet pushed right against my face
Creyvin1Morehead · 36-40, M
A business trip to Germany, company Vic president took me for a ride on the Autobahn in his car.

I come back home a brought one the same
0 - 250 kml/hr = 15.1 sec Top speed, we slowed down at 268
taehyun · 18-21, F
[@6602,helenS] I always thought it was just because they didn’t have a speed limit there (up until last year). The drivers there tend to be pretty good too, from what I’ve seen and heard. Apparently to get your license in Germany, it’s super tough and you take many tests.
I’m still not a fan of the high speeds there though. Shit scared me!
helenS · 31-35, F
[@4143,taehyun] For example, bad guys from Switzerland do illegal street races in Germany, because it's considered a trivial offense in Germany, whereas in Switzerland they would go to jail and do a long time there.
taehyun · 18-21, F
[@6602,helenS] God.. the lengths people go to just for their “fun”. What a way to put everyone in danger! Idiots they are
WandererTony · 51-55, M
I think I have done 130 kmph on the highway. I loose road grip beyond that on my car.
Lanyx · 41-45, M
180km/h in a 120km/h zone on an urban highway. Kept that speed for few seconds before backing off. Car was a 1987 Nissan Sentra SGLi

Fastest under my control: Cessna 172 (ZS-VIR) 140kt (260km/h) in an inadvertent dive. I flew into a cloud (with an instructor) and didn't pay attention to the instruments. The scream of the engine alerted me that something is wrong. I recovered at a safe height.

210 km/hr ish. I dunno that cars Speedo used to stop at 160 km/hr, it didn't have the stock engine🤷‍♀️, had it past O🤷‍♀️.
LunarOrbit · 56-60, M
160 km/hr. Motorbike. Sold it. Still alive
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
Jeesh you guys are all slow pokes!

Fastest I personally drove... 209.21 km/hr in Nebraska.

Fastest I have ridden.. 217.26 km/hr again in Nebraska.

The Datsun 280z top out at 217.26 km/hour it wasn't mine yet the owner was a crazy driver. From 235 mph to 0 in 15 hair raising seconds is what made him crazy!
