# What is the average top speed of a car?

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!

### What is the top speed of a Formula 1?

depends completely on the cars aerodynamic setup, gear ratios, ect.

### What is meant by the top speed of a car?

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 forces 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…

### Is it possible to have an average speed larger than the top speed?

No, that isn't possible. 'Average speed" indicates the time you need to get from A to B. If you start at point A and accelerate to top speed as quickly as possible, there will always be a period where you are still driving at less than top speed. And if you first accelerate to top speed before reaching point A, the best you can do is driving from A to B at a speed equal…

### What is the top average speed of a plane?

You can have a top speed and you can have an average speed, but you can't have a top average. Top average is like saying exactly approximately. Leaving that it's very much dependent on the type of aeroplane. The first planes weren't faster than scooters, while today fighter aircraft will easily do twice the speed of sound. Pick a plane type and vintage first, then you can find out how fast it can go.

### How fast can a car go?

It depends on the car. Some cars have a top speed of about 100 miles per hour or a little more. Most cars will have a top speed of more than 100 MPH. Some high performance cars, such as the Corvette, have a top speed of closer to 200 MPH, and some really high performance, or exotic, cars have a top speed of more than 200 MPH. All that said though, some cars have a…
