    I'm just interested to hear a few top speeds from the Test Track.

    So far I've managed:

    417.7kph in a Lotus Esprit V8 SE.
    416.8kph in a Dodge Viper GTS
    412.1kph in a Tuscan Speed12

    Anyone else got close?

    I don't think that was clear enough for you lot.

    What I'm after, (before you all rush to post replies!!!) is record speeds in cars that have been purchased (or won) and tuned from the standard specs.

    He's dealing in kph, your in mph.  Your speed if my math is correct, is 430.6 kph

    mph -> kph x / .62
    kph -> mph x * .62

    oh, and by the way, proper respect should be given to max revs for starting a max speed excluding the escudo which I now depise more than all other forms of cheating combined.
    Oh, and Mazda 787B 263.0 mph

    With an Escudo i have reached 600 mph using the front end up wheely trick, but with my Panoz Esperante i have gone almost 300 mph.  I beet the begginer super speed way in reverse with my panoz.  was funny lapping them backwards.

    Hint : wash and reoil the car for more boost.

    Hint #2 : Buy a full transmition upgrade and go to settings then reset gear ratio to wide for more speed.

    i made an ac shelby cobra go from 145 mph to 210mph.

    Actually washing the car supposedly reduces drag...

    also... is you add a custon paintjob and some decals you can add to your max speed by atleast 100 mph... just gotta press up, down, left, right, a, b, b, a at the tune shop and it opens up the hidden feature in the game that allows all that... :D

    Don't even get them started!

    If you search on top speed, high speed, 1000 mph, etc... you'll see all kind of posts about all kinds of ridiculously high speeds.

    You can run the GT-ONE race car at like 500+mph in the same manner as the escudo

    I think it's a really good idea to have a highest speed thing without the Escudo included.

    And perhaps not the GT-One, as it can be configured to do the same 'wheelie' trick as the 'Scud.
