You mean, buy one, disable the speed limiter (while voiding the warranty lol), and find out.

Bought 1 2day and it does 282 km/hr max....


155mph. This is a fact. My dad did it on the Autobahn with 5 guys in the car.


U.S. R32s are limited to 130 mph (might be 134 mph). ROW (rest of world) R32s are limited to 155 mph.


Mine has been de-restricted and am told it should do 170mph, but I havnt tried that yet :)


I've reached 274 Km/h in mine...but ive heared that if unlocked it can reach 300 Km/h easy and some minor company modification of the gear shifting RPM by increasing the limit to arround 8000 RPM can do miricals but can be fatal to the engine if you are an agressive driver...


The HPA 625HP car did 186mph in the standing mile


This is a pic off our StreetPilot 2620 GPS before I had to do a reset. Used mostly in the R32. I know my GLX won't go this fast, but have had it to 140MPH several times. RH side, middle field. Max Speed MH. Just a K&N filter and upper strut tower brace. Bought a 7/70K warranty, so still have a year left.


I've driven mine to 250KPH which is 155MPH, but haven't been to go faster due to lack of clear road. 240 KPH feels a stable speed
