The top speed ever acheived by a formula one car during a race was 369.9 km/h (229.8 mph) set during the 2004 Italian Grand Prix at Monza, Italy by driver AntÃ´nio Pizzonia of the BMW Williams F1 team driving the FW26 powered by a BMW 3.0 litre v10.
Answer . Micro cars, that is, 2 seat cars with sub 1.3 litre engines, about 140 kph (85 mph). Small cars, 4 seats such as Toyota Corolla, 170 kph (106 mph). Medium cars, 5 seats such as BMW 318i, 230 kph (142 mph). Large cars, for example, Lexus IS 500, 250 kph (155 mph). Sports cars, such as… Aston Martin DB8, 280 kph (174 mph), BMW M3 285 kph (178 mph) Chrysler Viper 273 kph (170 mph). Supercars like the Porsche GT3, 305 kph (190 mph). Hypercars such as Pagani Zonda, 370 kph (235 mph) Bugatti Veyron 407kph (253 mph) Ultima Aero 412 kph (257 mph). 99% of every day cars fit somewhere between 170 kph and 230 kph so the average top speed of most cars would be 200 kph (124 mph). Suvs, popular in the USA would average around 190 kph (118 mph) as they have large frontal areas and high drag. This is despite large power outputs.. The true top speed of any particular car would occur on a smooth, flat, straight road with no wind and cool conditions. The engine needs to be freshly serviced and be able to produce maximum power. The tyre pressures need to be the maximum for that vehicle. All windows need to be wound up and the air conditioning off. Drive safely and within the law at all times! (MORE)
Answer . 100000000000000000000. The current record holder is ThrustSSC, a twin turbofan jet powered car, which achieved 763 mph over a measured one mile course.
IT is more than 300km/hr! it could be as high as 360 -380 kph depending on there gearing
Depend on what family car you are looking at. on a 2010 chevy cruze a 1.8 4 cylinder family I maxed out 210 km/ph on a 2006 subaru impreza gx 2.0 i maxed out 220kmph on a 2006 nissan tiida 1.6 i maxed out 190kmph on a 2007 suzuki swift 1.2 i mexed out 167kmph
In 1996, Paul Tracy recorded a trap speed of 256.948 mph (413.52 km/h) at Michigan International Speedway.
If its a race car your talking about with a Yamaha 1200 or 1250cc motor and 5 speed transmission, they can run about 120 or 125 depending on the rear end gear. but they usually would never get close to this because their either running on a 1/4 or 1/2 mile track. The bigest track I've ever ran mine …on is a road course. I cant remember how big it was but we could get up to about 90. (MORE)
Cars are designed to have a top speed for safety reasons. An engine can only spin at so many RPMs before things start to fly off or destroy themselves. The same holds true for the rest of the moving parts on a car. Tires can only handle so many RPMs before the rubber starts to come apart. The faster… things spin the greater the centrifical force.

US car production was dealt a setback because of World War II. In 1940 pre World War II the US produced 4,680,000 cars. Although each decade in history is different the decade of the 1940's is by far the most unusual in U.S. automobile history. This was the only period of time when automobile produc…tion stopped for a period of 3-4 years. No cars were manufactured after 1942 due to the advent of World War II. Production for civilians did not resume until 1946 .Early 1940's saw the first time luxury cars started rolling off a production line. A car showed the wealth and status of its owner. Cars like the Delahaye 135 convertible whose top speeds reached 95 mph , the Delahaye was the ultimate 1940 luxury car. .

The Toyopet was not powerful and had a low top speed -- 55 mph from a 27 horsepower engine -- but it was designed to be cheap, and to handle the rough roads of postwar Japan.. source: "http://www.anythingaboutcars.com/1950scars.html" (MORE)

7mph was the first speed ever recorded for a Car.. Answeered by Car/Formula One Genius
Assuming you mean production cars, it is the SSC Ultimate Aero at 257 mph+, 0-60 in 2.7 secs. Twin-Turbo V8 Engine with 1183 hp, base price is $654,400. Tested in March 2007 by Guinness world records, The SSC Ultimate Aero takes the lead as the fastest car in the world beating Bugatti Veyron.
EDIT: A Newer crown Victoria Police Interceptor will max out at 120 because of the speed limiter. The older models had drive-line failure during high speed (130-140mph) driving so they added a limiter. (police interceptor crown Victoria's made before 2006 have a speed limiter set at 140 mph) All… true Police cars should have a tire speed rating of W (168 mph) so that is not a factor in its top speed. the charger based police cars come in 2 flavors, The wild and crazy 5.7L Hemi V8 and the calm 3.5L V6. The V8 has the speed limiter set at 146mph. The V6 at 137 mph. Also The Chevrolet Tahoe SUV (some areas have them, I know mine does) Has a max speed of a 133mph and i think this is drag limited The Chevrolet Impala police car has a max speed of 139mph with the 3.9L V6 But needess to say it is the wrong idea to run from the cops because if they catch you the circumstances will be worse for you than if you just stopped in the first place. But at 145 mph cops can't read your plates...so just keep going (in 5 sec you will be more than 2 miles away already). (MORE)
The top speed of a NASCAR stock car will vary depending on thetrack. On average, speeds can top as high as 190 to 200 mph.
Most Formula One cars have a top speed of over a 300 km/h with some cars reaching 330 km/h in fast straight circuits like Monza, Japan etc. The highest speed ever to reach by an Formula One car is 368.16 km/h and without the wings are capable of reaching over 400 km/h.
It depends on the car and the equipment used to drive it. . Most muscle cars lack a governor or a speed-control device, which allows the car to reach its max speed potential. The typical top speed of a muscle car during their prime era, was around 130-135mph. This is all the engine could push the c…ar with the stock transmission without over-revving and damaging the motor. The cars were not meant for top speed as much as they were made for quickness and throttle response. (MORE)
Most cars have electronically limited top speeds because their manufacture's don't want to get sued. The limit usually corresponds to the speed rating of the tires the car comes with from the factory. If this limit is exceeded, the tires can overheat, and explode. Example: my 1995 Lexus LS400 is not… limited, and hit roughly 170 mph with some modifications. I was running tires rated at 149 mph, and after a prolonged high speed run, my left rear tire literally exploded, taking with it a large chunk of bumper. So there you have it. The OEM's don't want your tires exploding. (MORE)
A Honda Formula One car, running with minimum downforce on a runway in the Mojave desert achieved a top speed of 415 km/h (258 mph) in 2006. According to Honda the car fully met the FIA Formula One regulations. Cars in races reach speeds of up to 350 kph (220 mph) on some circuits. 251mph for Ferrar…is, a bit more for Mclaren and a bit less for Red Bull (MORE)
buggati veryon goes 407kmh max and it is record. . That's the current record for an unmodified production vehicle, Top fuel dragsters and funny cars currently reach speeds around 330 mph (531 kph) and the world land speed record for a wheeled vehicle is 763.035 mph (1227.986 kph). There is no real… answer to the question because the top speed of a vehicle is determined primarily by power output, aerodynamics, wind resistance and weight, and that varies with every vehicle and varies every time you drive it. (MORE)
because it makes its easier for the engine to push the car through the air.
Mclaren F1 is the fastest cars on tracks like in real NASCAR racing but the fastest cars on land is the bugattii
The on-screen speedo's top speed incates 270 km/h so I would imagine 260 km/h would be possible. This speed would rarely be achieved during any race. The track with the longest straight would be a good indicator of the cars top speed.
it is around 40 mph slow ain't it u must have had foot on brake not accelerater. try 91 mph
Fast.. probably 375 kph or so... but it all depends on the gearing and the aero.... NONE of the cars run that fast anymore because of the lack of downforce.
bugati veyron has the top speed in the world. it has speed of 497 km/hrs
It cant just accelerate to the endless, at some point a car's power wouldn't be powerfull enought to go faster, because the air gets thicker the faster you go, and the car looses grip, this is why high performance cars needs a powerfull engine, great aerodynamics and good tires.
You aren't driving it well enough, or you aren't driving in a place where that speed can be reached.
The 'top speed' of a car generally refers to the maximum speed (in either miles per hour of kilometers per hour) that a car can achieve based upon the manufacturer's original design specifications. Any car's top speed is limited by a number of factors, including electronic limiters, aerodynamic forc…es acting on the car and tire speed ratings. The top speed of a car can be increased or decreased by altering any or all of these factors. It is critically important that the tire speed rating is matched to the actual top speed of the vehicle to prevent 'blow outs' at high speeds. (MORE)
Fastest is a difficult one to answer, as it's not purely about straightline speed, rather about the quickest way around a given circuit. Back in the mid- to late-1980s, some of the turbocharged cars were chucking out in the region of 1500bhp in qualifying trim. The Brabham-BMW, Williams-Honda and …McLaren-Porsche were reputedly the quickest and nothing has got close since. And these were four-cylinder, 1.5 litre engines, albeit with turbos on them the size of the Royal Albert Hall. (MORE)
Well, first I'd try to learn how to use proper English. The fastest car on the road you ask? [It] Depends what you mean by "fastest". Quickest 1/8th mile, 1/4 mile, 0-60, top speed, etc., etc.
There is no sensor that controls top speed. On computer controlled vehicles, the speed sensor sends input to the computer and the top speed is limited by the computer (pcm, ecu, whatever the manufacturer refers to it as). It is a preset value programed in but can be changed with reprogramming but on… most cars the limited top speed is not much below the top speed the vehicle is capable of due to final drive gearing and maximum engine operating RPM, with very few exceptions usually being high performance high horsepower models. (MORE)
have it in top gear, drive along at 1000rpm, note the speed, then drive up to 2000rpm, just say 25mph increase, now depending what rpm your limited to multiply 25mph by how many revs you have. e.g 6500rpm multiply by 25mph = 162.5mph
3,000 mph But really most auto equipped cars loose several % off the top speed compared to their manual equipped equivalent.
The first vehicle to move using its own power was design by Nicholas Joseph Cugnot and constructed by M. Brezin in 1769. In the succeeding years, the second unit run to a top speed of 2 miles per hour.
1000 mph to 3000 or it will explode in your face and you will die or get very very hurt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
F1 cars never really get up to their absolute top speed as even inqualifying, they wouldn't get to their max speed. To get to highspeed at tracks like Monza and SPA during a qualifying race weekendsession. Low downforce with aero stream can help to get a F1 car toit top speed at the track. For off t…rack, it those with a longenough road bearing in mind tyres can explode and to have enoughfuel to get to speed without effecting performance. (MORE)
You can change the differential gear ratio but you will sacrifice quickness on the lower end unless you have sufficient horsepower.
yea newer cars have a speed limiter, like my lancer, they top out at a certain speed to be safe. Usually around 100+ mph. by the way how fast are you driving to notice this? My car tops out at 115 and ive never reached it except at the track... So yeah slow down.
Well the fastest street legal production car in the world is the ssc ultimate aero topping well over 257 mph. The fastest street legal car is a 1972 Vauxhall VX4/90 FD. Top speed unknown. (o-60mph in 1sec) The answer depends on what type of car you want ,a production car or a car built by a man… in his home garage :) (MORE)
The Bullet Buckeye 2.5 EV went 307.7 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats on 8/27/2010.
The Ford J4 factory cars at LeMans in 1965 was about 230 mph down the front straightaway. A J Foyt and Andretti were the drivers.
Actually this value depends on the season and on the car. In the previous season 2010 the top cars (Ferrari, Red Bull, and McLaren) had top speeds in excess of 320 kmph. The midfield cars were a bit slower than this and the tail end teams (new teams) like Hispania, lotus and virgin were much slower …and were around 300 kmph range. (MORE)
Weight of vehicle, shape and aerodynamic properties of vehicle, Power to weight ratio, atmospeheric conditions (temperature, humidity levels and altitude). Tyre pressure is a very important one, also the octane level of fuel being used. These are the common factors to consider.
The worlds fastest production car, the Bugatti Veyron Super sport, has a top speed of 267 mph. The land speed world record is held by the Thrustssc, it achieved a top speed of 763.035 mph.
"According to research, the top speed in Honda Odyssey cars is 119 miles per hour."
Rear end size, gears in the trans and the amount of power the car has
The fastest speed of cable cars were produced by Aerial Tram andGondola, which has maximum speeds of 12.5m/s (45km/h) and 8.5m/s(30km/h) respectively.
The top speed for a Laguna stock car is estimated at one hundred and fifty miles per hour and with about a stunning one hundred and ninety one horsepower.
Honda F1 car set a land speed record 2way average at Bonneville at 397km/h or aprox. 247mph. It did top out at 413km/h oneway.
The top speed of a Maserati car can vary depending on the model such as the 2013 GranCabrio MC which has a top speed 189 mph. The GranCabrio MC can go from 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds.
