Got my car to 120 mph on the highway. I know the top speed is about 150, but would need a long stretch of road to get to that speed. What's the fastest you have gone?

I don't do premeditated top speed runs, but it can happen if I am eliminating laggards in the fast lane or whatever. I think I've glanced down during one of those episodes and seen 110.

It hits 100 pretty easily. I may take it out to the middle of Kansas one day and do a run but not really a top priority of mine as this thing even stock is amazing in the corners. So controllable.

140 on a long straight at night w/ no traffic just to see. No plans on getting up that high again unless I get free use of an air strip :)

I haven't really got on it in the ST yet. I think so far 80 is my tops on the interstate and a highway on-ramp.

In my previous cars though...
86 CRX - 115 twice, technically it's top speed was 105, so either the speedo was off or the hills helped out
93 MX3 - 110
06 tC - also 110

As I'm getting older, I really don't want to get a willful reckless driving ticket for driving an absurd speed lol. I'm sure I'll test out the ST at some point though :)

Hit 125 on I-90 in eastern wa. Ran out of room. Slow climb after 115 but felt it had alot left.
