The fastest I've ever seen a car on any track was a McLaren F1 in Le Mans race trim. It topped 180mph driven by one of the best road racing driver in America.

Any discussion of top speed on this forum is moot.
Thanks for the warm welcome 'Hack'

I posted this topic under this section because it didn't make a whole lot of sense to list it in any of the other subheadings - e.g. engine/exhaust, cosmetics modifications, suspension and breaking chat, etc.

A simple "i don't know", or "here's the answer" would have sufficed.

Thanks for your contribution.
