    Lol!
    I couldn't possibly qualify what unit of measure I was referring too...

    But was in the RS4 and NOTHING has went past it in that manner before...

    Lovely dry day, pretty quiet road, but took some pair to do it...

    600 class bikes top out around 250kph - so that rules a lot of us lesser mortals out. They do get there a hell of a lot quicker than most 4 wheels stuff mind you.

    A cousin once reached the red leds in 6th in the 458 (in another jurisdiction). The speedometer is far too small and peripherally located to look at when pushing on at a fraction of that potential velocity so the actual speed is not something that can be verified by checking the speedo. 155-158 mph on the main straight in Silverstone by comparison where I didn't get that far into the gears.

    'A friend' once reached a gps verified 159 imperial in a notorious R32 Skyline - things come and go very fast at that speed on a motorway 'similar' to the M50.

    On a bike it'd be quite something!

    Some say the Interlagos Blue e60 M5 I once had a spin in was absolutely not restricted to 155mph

    Ive heard some cars can feel very light in the front end when you are pushing past 140 mph and gentle bends stat to feel like hairpins on a motorway...
