so, I was driving back from a local audi/vw GTG...........and it was dark......and empty on the freeway........so I floored it.

getting up to 120 was easy....130 was a lil slower....took forever to hit 140....and finally topped out at about 148..........I wish I had a camera, but at that speed on a narrow freeway it would be kinda risky to take hands off the wheel to take pics.

I didn't expect for it to be that high...........but after 130 it took forever........even though the RPM were only at 5k and the redline wa at about 6.5k

this was my record in the a4....

That'd been a hell of a ticket. I've done roughly 130 when it hit the limiter... 10 mins later got a ticket, clocked at 106 in a 70, cop was nice, he said that i had a safe car so 95 in a 70, so I could do traffic school.[:D]

I did 140 in my 94 Mustang GT a year ago. It felt as if i was gonna take off in the air

maybe it's because it was night time, but it didn't seem all that fast.......LoL..........but it did take some effort to slow down.....

the gtg was an hour away from my collage......so it was outside the city wit no cars or even lights..........completelly straight with brand new pavement and 65mph speed limit. It was also about 1am.

It was fun!

I think the MPG was like 7-8[:D]

Get together.

Be safe on public roads, speed like that is for the track.

Since you had no one on the road at least you weren't endangering anyone else...though at night you have to be careful of animals.

Nice,

At 130 in my Z06 with the pedal down, it is still hard to lift your head from the seat. [:D] When I shift to 5th at around 140 it still throughs you back. Then it seems to take forever to get from 150 to 170, really its just a few seconds but going that fast seems like forever.

I've had the S4 up to 150 and it sure takes awhile there from 100, to 100 is quite quick.

i have'nt touched my chipped limiter, but this is stock. i can't remember if i was approching the limit, or if it had just bounced off of it.

It's funny, the eye isn't used to seeing the spedometer over on the right side in 120's. I have gone 120 before in a 325i, but wow, that picture just looks so akward it's so far to the right...

i burried the needle in my crx (b18c1 swap).... the governor on that car was removed.... 135mph+ speedo didn't read any higher.....

fastest i've gone in my a4 is 120mph......

73 freeway in California, late at night right after they finished the freeway, four lanes & no cops - 173MPH in my 1973 Vette. Almost died when one of the T-Tops blew off. Hell of a ride.

Yeah, the gov on my car is like 130-135 something like that. Winter is here up north though, so I won't be doing any stretch runs till spring when I get my suspension setup and spacers to make it a bit safer feeling when doing speeds like that.

Unless you're like EVIL. THen you do 130 in an SUV. You crazy bastid....;)

havent taken it out on a high speed test drive yet but racing an M3 a couple months ago, reached 140 in no time. Realized that I had a blow out earlier that month so I had one tire that wasnt the same as the rest so I should probably slow down

i remember when i first got my car. and i was convinced the a4 was was one of the best handling cars with quattro and all. when i took that on road trips def got it up to 150. now i can see that was pretty stupid. but it was new and i had to break it in or somthing lol. =/

you hit 150 in a stock a4?

11-17-2004, 12:55 PM
The fastest my A4 would go is 126. I haven't tried a top speed since I fixed a broken hose, so maybe it's slightly faster now. I was a little disappointed on how long it takes to get there after 100 mph however. My RPMs were also pretty low at that point, what's the deal?

Yes, yes, the Durango was moving that day my friends. I had half of AZ in my truck and we needed to get to NY and back fast. What can I say. She breathes nicer now with the new headers.[:D]

Yeah the NE extension is a great place to fly. I normally drive around 80+ in my local highways, but there I've gotten my Audi past 140 with 2 others in the car. Trips to AWE have always gotten over 130. But not the smartest thing to do.

And NO, there is no stock A4 that has ever hit 150. Everyone knows the truth on that.

i havent really topped out very much at all yet, roads here arent straight everywhere. i do hear it feels like u are flying though, lol.

haha....the famous trip we've heard all about. We sure weren't going fast around Philly in your ride, that place was nuts. If it goes down again next year hopefully I can experience a Durango ride first hand.

I buried the needle in my Omni a few times!! Speedo stopped at 85 though[:)] Had the A4 up to 130 the day I chipped it. I don't think the S has been over 130 either yet.

I have been on the 485 bypass several times in the past month. Not a bad road at all. Come to think of it, I didn't see any troopers either. Then again, in NC, they can take your license if you're caught speeding +10mph over, right?

LOL.. i figured it was a motorcycle.... right on...NUTS..but right on.

148 in a shifterkart...

168 in a jag twin turbo <-- convertible no less..thought the top was gonna get sucked right off after it hit 160... had a person from a japanese car magazine with me.... she almost pooped

175+ in the race car... but it gets there quick :) - easily over 200 if those damn braking zones weren't so important..

oh..and my audi.. I did 117 once... but a blonde chick passed me on my way back from a race..and I was bored..otherwise.. the needle never goes over 95.... I baby my street cars.. tickets are stupid.. dying on the street because you were speeding is even more stupid... dying racing cars though...well...that just makes you a stud.[:D]

hahaha, you know it. That pic must have been when we slowed down for something.[:D] Like when we changed over to the truck lane cause we wanted to go faster. That was a nice touch.

11-18-2004, 10:33 AM
on my stock audi, the most impressive range is the 80 - 100 mph. it's really satisfying when you're cruising along at 80 , drop it into 4th and you're at 100 fairly quick. and that's the fastest i've ever been in my car. billboards and road signs don't look right blurring past you like that.

For all the socalers, on the 8 once you past pine valley the way to Arizona is the place to speed, atleast until el centro. Thats where i got pulled over for 106 in a 70. Escort 8500 solves my speeding problems now.

How man points was that and how much of a fine? I just got pulled over for 80 in a 50 tuesday. F'ing sucks I had no idea where I was and then I saw signs for the Parkway got all excited, speed up a little, and then there just so happen to be a cop chilling under one of the overpasses. Do you have any advice for a fellow Azer LA JOLLA?

oh what the ****


All you need is some idiot animal crwaling in the road and you hitting it at top speeds. Lets see, it could be a simple cost or a pretty penny. I tried doing what you did, but the biggest strip I have is the 90 freeway in LA. It might be 1 1/2 miles long, not sure. I saw this GT2 rock it while hiding from the cops . . . . FANTASTIC

90s BMW 52?i - 140-160 - 17 yrs old, busted n arrested
Accord - 120-130 before shaking violently on the way to Vegas
A4 - drive 80-100 most of the time on the freeway.
top speed is bout 130 before the car started to rattle/shake a shitload (coming home on the 14 from Palmdale). New rims n suspension should solve that.

my top speed so far is ~140mph on a 3 mile race track (BIR), I probably could have gotten faster, but the straight after turn 10 and into turn one doesn't give a modded A4 THAT much room...

last night, coming out of n.y.c.,took me an hour to get through the lincoln tunnel at 1 am.got onto the n.j. turnpike, cruising at 95,said screw it and just floored it. I was impressed with the power up that high. I let off the gas at just about 140 mph. My wife was asleep in the passenger seat. I told her this morning........she was pissed!!
