    Did 161 mph last weekend, but my tires are a tad bit taller than stock, so I think I hit somewhere in the neighborhood of 164 mph and it was still pulling, I didnt have time to look at the GPS speed on the NAV, was moving wayyy too fast.

    Re: CTS-V top speed?

    160mph here - my tires are a bit shorter than stock, so that's limiter in 5th.
    It might have been mostly the road I was on at the time (racing Lambo on Rt2 in Boston) but it was pretty scary at that speed. Only thing scarier was my sport bike at 170mph - felt like I had two rubber molecules touching the road...
    '99 Z51 C5 at 175mph was rock-solid - less scary than my high-school girlfriend's Hyundai Excel was at 55mph. :-)

    145 in an SHO was kind of scary.
    163 in the V felt rock solid to me.
