Since Im sure I'll never see it...

What are the top speeds of the the V's??

IM pretty sure the V1 was around 161.....and I thought i had seen the V2 with Manual is around 191? Any difference for the coupe?

Thanks

I have taken my auto 4door 2011 to 180mph on video.... Untuned with an airaid and corsa. Reason being when WOT at that speed the V auto will not shift to 6th gear.... I have tried it multiple times in sport mode and auto.... Im sure you can tune it out.... But i reach 180mph the digital speedo in 5th gear almost redline. When i get tuned, im sure this ar will go over 190 just like the manual

I'm sure you can tune it out, however, exploding transmission @ >180mph... not so great.

I would not want to pull into overdrive with any sort of power at WOT personally. 150-160 is enough for me while racing and for top speed hits I would pick some other car.

I`ve topped out 306 kph, that`s 190 mph a several times on the Autobahn. Yes, it reaches top speed in fifth gear and when you lift off the gas pedal it engages to sixth gear at around 240 kph, that`s around 150 mph.

Yes, the top of 5th in my 11 is 155/156 I think, or right near there.

We need an Autobahn here. I can't go faster than 120 mph around here before letting off for traffic or a cop around the corner.

I've seen the M6 Wagon hit about 175 on a dry lake bed (youtube video). Sold me on the car when I was waffling about trading the G8 GXP!

i hit 187 in my manual on with room to go...i think it would have hit 191-192 who knows. This was stock. I wonder how much quicker/faster I can go with the lower 9.55 pulley upgrade....hmmmmmm

A friend owns a 2010 Sedan with 6 manual and the fastest he had it was 320 kph (199 mph).
