    What has been the fastest you have ever driven in a car.

    What we all want to know
    1: What car was it in.
    2: How much horsepower does it have (google it if you don't know).
    3: Was the road flat/uphill/downhill?
    4: How fast did you go?

    Me,
    1: 1996 Honda Accord LX
    2: 130 hp
    3: It was downhill.
    4: 110 MPH (was still accelerating but I had to brake for a corner because I don't want to die yet.)

    Take a picture of your car if you want.

    Initial run started in the hills to build up speed, but final run for speed took place in the flat part of the valley in front of my house. Probably about a 5 solid mile run in total to build up the speed (that car was sloooow)
    Probably close to 135 or 140. My speedometer only went to 85, so I had a friend follow me in his Dodge Spirit so I could get a reading, however he said before we even got off the hills and into the valley he had his 120mph gauge buried and I was pulling away from him at a full car length a second.

    Yeah... I dunno about that... that seems a little crazy high. The 4 speed in those things tops out gearing wise at 178, but I have a hard time believing it would ever get there unless you were drafting off of something also going that fast and going downhill while you were at it. That thing is aero limited at about 135 to 140 due to lack of power. Also, if you are doing over 120 that means you must have the sport package as normal ones are governed to 120.

    About 40mph in a 2012 JK in the deserts of Aruba.... I assume it had the 3.6L, that makes about 280hp I believe. I hate driving, more of a boat guy. Speed boats are fun.

    Edit: not sure why this is funny =(
