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!

In a car, the speedometer measured Instantaneous speed. This comes from the assumption that the car does not slow down and speed up fast enough for the speedometer to be able to give an average of the changing speed.

Generally, the average car speed is whatever the speed limit is. While some go over and under, others stay right on the speed limit, making it the average.

If the average speed of the car....Here is an unfinished question. The total distance is average speed times time. But since average speed is gotten by dividing total distance by the time, then it's a kind of circular question.

It changes the air resistance of the car - which is the controlling factor of top-speed.
