    My best is with the R33 GT-R. 254 MPH on the Test Course. I think it is the fastest car in the game. It has 940 HP, BTW.

    I think the Mitsubishi GTO might be faster, I know it has something like 950BHP or so.

    Checked my oldest longest game, and it has 261mph for a new [R]Supra RZ.

    That's a shade over 420km/hr if my calculations are correct?

    Minimize aero, and tweak the gears are the main things I do. Other people say use max ride height and soft suspension, but I've never seen much correlation between such changes and max speed.

    I race the Max Speed course backwards, turning around once I've got a good speed, so that it gets recorded. But than only gets me an extra 2 or 3 mph maybe, and I should be able to match any speed I've achieved backwards going forwards.

    Perhaps the aero simulation is different in the PAL version?

    I may have slightly higher speeds recorded somewhere else too.

    And in the Mega-Speed event Test Track race you can get a good draft slingshot to send you up to around 300mph.

    276 mph in a gto
    280 mph in a skyline
    284 mph in a supra

    All cars were non hybrid and fully tuned. Times were done drafting in the high speed cup on the test course race. The Supra can keep higher speeds when in the corners, this helps especially with the tighter track of gt1. Of course I'm sure my setup could be improved, this must have been about 6 years ago!

    Fastest non draft is a 261 in a supra.

    With a perfect draft I think 300 is possible.

    412kph in the mega speed cup with Mitsubishi GTO Twin Turbo '92.

    Everyone was in a huge group drafting one another, the Supra behind picked up speed behind me hit me in the back, my GTO got out of its rpm dead spot, blasted off, a car was on either side of me and a skyline in front, I had no here to go except for into the back of the skyline, wowz3rs.

    254mph GTO, not '95. 265 somewhere for the RZ.
    Can go faster, but I dont have the right gear settings.
    btw, the Skyline is the most powerful car in GT1.

    My Test Track top speed results:
    --------------------------------
    This is from a standing start 1 lap without racing other cars so no drafting.

    Supra RZ with Race gearbox - 411
    GTO TwinTurbo with Race gearbox - 408
    TRD3000GT with gearbox set to Max Acceleration - 406
    R32 GT-R with Race gearbox - 396
    Nismo GT-R with Race gearbox - 396
    Nismo 400R with Race gearbox - 392
    Soarer 2.5 with gearbox set to Max Acceleration - 382

    All measurements are in KM/H. I love the top speed's done by the cars with the Race set Trannies, means that I must have worked the gear ratios out properlly.
