Who has the fastest car


Recommended Posts

I have an old four wheel drive Nissan 4 cylinder diesel ute which has a top speed of about 130 kph with a tail wind. :lol:

 

Wife has a VY V6 Holden Commodore which can supposedly crack around the 200 kph mark.

 

 

What vehicle/top speed do you own/have?

2002 Hyundai Santa Fe

2004 Hyundai Elantra GT (4 door hatchback)

1995 Volvo 850 Sedan..

 

My parents...I drive the Volvo to school - haven't topped it out. The Elantra is very peppy, very quick off the line, don't known the max speed....btw..Hyundai is quality now... not like their older ones.

Exactly, they're becoming an exciting car manufacturer to watch and I do like the Sonata and Azera.

 

The Tiburon ("a.k.a. Hyundai Coup?") would be alright if only they'd re-design it because it looks very dated at the frontend and put more engine power into it making the V6 obsolete via forced induction in the 4 cylinder model, i.e.; supercharger, or turbo.

my first car was a 77 transam with a 454 in it. my next vehicle was a 70 volkswagon westfalia camper van. like driving a toaster with a hamster on a wheel in it. lol

Haha...I go to an all guys Catholic high school...not many ladies to impress. Our sister school is a few miles down the road.

We got our uncle to buy a used Sonata, and my grandparents to buy an Elanta sedan.

 

I want a Tiburon badly..why? NewTiburon.com I found that website and was really impressed with what their members have done. I'm interested in which year you are talking about in calling the front end dated.

OK heres a twist on the subject, thanks to

1984 my first car was a 77 transam with a 454 in it.

My first car was a Mazda RX3 sedan, with a fully worked (Peripheral Ported) RX7 Rotary engine & gearbox with a top speed of over 130MPH, thats what the speedometer went up to.

lol...actually she wasnt kidding. my parents live about a five minute drive from us just outside the city, and they have 50 acres of land with cattle barns, electric waterers, bailers, etc. that arent being used (my dad used to have a few dozen cows on his hobby farm). the only problem with a horse is I know that I would have to go feed it, and im worried my kids and wife will gang up on me and we will end up getting one! they are actually quite cheap to buy..

But it gets me where i need to go...

Fuel economy is amazing. i can get 650kms on 40 canadian dollars with the added use of the STP fuel Additive in the black jug.

 

AMAZANT!

I currently drive a 1990 Toyota DX :). The four-banger inside isn't very peppy, but the car is mechanically sound (for the most part) and that's all I'm worried about.

 

Currently looking at a Honda Fit or a Toyota Yaris.

My younger brother had a Harley about 20 years ago. A long time I know, but you never forget a Harley.

 

The sound is like nothing else on wheels. Then he got married and sold it.

 

Criminal.

I drive mom's '01 Dodge Caravan. I think top speed is 125mph, but I could be wrong. Doesn't matter much anyhow because I'm not allowed to find out fast she'll go. For the average drive though, when the AC is off it's pretty quick for a 4cyl, but when the AC is on, forget it - a snail can go faster. lol

 

I like to go fast. I need a Mustang...

I'm here. What are your other two wishes?

That's a concept car though, it looks rather cool though I must say!

 

So as to not put both feet into my mouth (known to do that sometimes) I was actually referring to their current commercial offering on their website, as seen here.
