    If i read this well it's after the 200Km/h that the extra power of the vxr comes into play...
    All that weight means a stage one mod is needed to keep up with the Scirroco and Megane at lower speeds and in gear acceleration.
    Big wheels and traditional GM long gear ratios play a big part too...
    Oh well...we all know that in a years time all vxr's are going to be 350bhp+...

        Not according to topgear, they only managed 236 km/h which is shocking

          Oh.. We are having a bad start with Top Gear ?
          This video shows max speed over 250 km/h using a GPS.

                did the limiter decide not to work?? or is that just a plain old inaccurate gauge?? take it this was on your private runway yeah?? lol

                  i always thought the limiter worked off the dial in the car but i know several people with cars limited to 155mph who have been passed that mark in their cars , odd

                    I'd be more interested in the 0-60 time than top end to be honest.
                    Can't even do 155 let alone 165 + legally on th eroad so whats the point?

                      looks like 5 and half ish to me (0-100kmh which is 62mph), but would need it logging to know for sure.

                        I have just moved back home from Germany so had the longest runway in the world lol just not private, I would have to guess the speedo was innaccurate and having 20s on when the standard wheels are 19s doesn't help, but I didn't have my sat nav on so I wouldn't know for sure

                            It's tremendous just cruising at 100mph and it feels like 70 but it drinks the fuel at that speed
