I believe the top speed that a speed6 can handle is 165 according to my dealer. Now, the governor will stop it at around 151. A simple search on this forum will get you some more specific numbers.

This racing is at the tracks right? Street racing ---> :nono:

150, but you can catch just right and get a little more.

Insanity. 4 door family cars should never need to get up to that speed. I can understand the yearn for wanting some that will launch you up to 60mph in no time, or a 1/4 mile time that is sub 13 seconds, but damn, 155mph, lol, this reminds me of that Porsche thread in the Lounge.

^ now does that include the M5 or RS4?

And for Christ's sake Ecko, please use punctuation next time.

I figure it like this, its nice that these cars have top speeds way in excess of what we can humanly control safely, but my point being that the 155mph top speed, maybe on closed circuit its logically attainable, maybe, however I just dont see the purpose of it? Is it more for brand awareness and bragging rights? You get what I mean? I love my speed6 because it gets me from stop to GO in no time, and I like that, and then it has the pick up when im trying to merge, pass etc... That is what makes it a good family/sport car, however, having a car with 550hp and a top speed of 2025734578mph, it doesnt make sense for the everyday individual. Perhaps its status, or perhaps the rush?

Top speed for the US spec Speed6/MPS is *149MPH..... Yeah I've been there a couple of times :D. Mazdaspeed3 is *155MPH and the Mazda RX-8 is 148mph.

Gotta love the "car can't handle" responses.... The speed6 does just fine at 130-150 mph... Now its very possible the DRIVERS are unable to deal with those speeds... Which is why we have a universal speed limit in the states... because jerkoff drivers who have no clue would drive outside their limits...

There are plenty of people in the US who are more than capable of those speeds just fine... If a deer jumps out infront of you... at 60.. you'll hit it... just the same at 150... Random shit happens...

are you sure your friend with the cobalt SS has a turbo? The cobalt ss can be supercharged and GM makes stage 2 kits so maybe you just got confused? of maybe he did a swap?

Well, the Cobb Accessport should take care of the whole governor problem, anyway.
