126MPH electronical limited because of the tires they put on them. They are only H rated up to 130MPH so there you go :rolleyes:

The car didn't feel that stable at 126 mph anyway.
Hmmm, with stockers? :confused:

Don't get me wrong, it's not like I'd break that speed more than once or twice in the life of the car. It'd just be a tad more exciting to know I could bury the speedo. :rolleyes:

Wow, I got mine up to 121 mph the other day, but had to ease off the gas because my exit ramp was fast approaching. My car could have gone faster and I was going up a slight incline on the highway. The problem with testing the max speed is my fear of the police (yes officer, I'm late to work) and the fact that you cover so much ground so quickly. I've only gone over 100 mph on the freeway maybe 3 or 4 times since I've owned the car for 10 months. Obviously, I do this only on an almost empty freeway-I'm not interested in wiping out a family over stupidity.

Hmm, what are you running for tires. I am on the stock setup and was up to 118 this morning. The car felt rock solid smooth to me?? I've never hit 126, but I couldn't imagine it going to crap at that speed. Just wondering...

Now I think I understand why some are getting the 10 - 14 mpg over in the Fuel Economy thread.

Euro 300C get Pirelli P7 225/60 R18 100W rated for 270kph (169mph).
The speed governor is set @250kph (156mph).

Last weekend I hit about 190kph (120mph). This a cruising speed with this car!

I remember my 1980 Ford Fiesta modded hitting 110mph... that was pretty...hot inside.

Been up to 126 plenty of times.... car feel solid ..... too bad for the limiter though.. would love to see it go more... on some better tires of course.

Been over 155 MPH 3 times now but the car feels very light on the steering and needs more stability to the ground or ground force and I am thinking of the SRT8 spoiler once put by mopar parts as an accessory which will it make much cheaper than than a replcement part.
PS. I live out of the US

Been over 155 mph 3 times, and just where do you live? It would be great so see what the C, and the SRT8 would be like on the Autobaun.

I've heard of being able to a 300C being able to do over 200MPH if you get it onto a flatbed that can go that fest; or get towed by a car or truck going 200mph.
