    Sadly, this is true for me, did around 130mph in 4th vs. Bentley GT, but never been higher. I think I could get 180mph, but would need a 3-mile runway.

    On the night I bought my 05 V, driving home could not resist and took it up to 130. I would have done more, but the road was getting curvy and I did not have any confidence in the tires...... A great feeling, and there was petal left.

    Re: CTS-V top speed?

    I just completed a run on a closed track (wink, wink) today and reached a MPH of 163 in 5th gear @ redline. I feel like the car might have had more due to my headers, exhaust, tune, and CAI. Maybe someday I'll shift into 6th and see what happens.

    BTW, the car felt pretty solid up to about 145, but from then on, the front end started to get a bit light feeling, nothing terrible, just different. Overall, a very enjoyable experience, haha.

    Re: CTS-V top speed?

    My several 163 mph runs felt very stable. The cars suspension is stock with FE4's and no spoiler. I could cruise all day at 163 and not be the least bit uncomfortable. But thats coming from a guy who dosen't think a 4x4 extened cab Ford at 120 is un-nerving. Would take both cars faster but thats as fast as they go! lol

    163 for mine, mostly stock with FE2 shocks felt solid minimal front end float but surface was very smooth and very straight with no wind gusts, was playing with a stock M5, kinda funny, it was clearly quicker but fell flat at the 155 limiter while I pulled away for a while. Nice not to have a limiter on our cars.

    Re: CTS-V top speed?

    New M5 or old M5? I always wondered how our cars would hold up to an older M5 stock for stock. Obviously the new one blows us away. :-)

    newer one blows most everything away.

    just wait till the 09V

    191mph top speed? zomg.

    also - you're all going to get letters from the DPS in the mail advising you that your drivers licenses have been suspended

    Re: CTS-V top speed?

    If we had the 3.42 gearing, we could probably see around 175mph in 5th

    Re: CTS-V top speed?

    155 twice for me, I agree once you see 155 she falls off a bit. But never the less I think the 163 or 164 top end is in with in reach (as other members have seen) BTW I'm bone stock. The is a vary stable car if you ask me.

    doubt it. seems like we're drag limited to 163. it's not like it's really pulling at redline in 5th
