2012 Charger SRT8 Top speed run/well sort of

Road looked wide open so I decided to give it a run. This was a continuous UPHILL climb, still hit 165. Probably would of hit 175 easily if it was flat. Almost broke a little loose in the beginning. It's amazing how button down it feels at these speeds. This was not done in sport mode. This car does not have the tune in it as I'm still waiting for the CALID update. Can't wait to see If I can really feel difference with the new tune.

Yea by where I live there is just not a lot of flat roads. I really want to see what this car tops out. Everybody says 175 but I honestly think it can push 180. Ultimately I just want to see what it feels like to hit 200. I will have to go to autobahn for that

I would be interested to see what she could do on the Autobahn as well You might need a 2.65 rear for a good top end run though.

Yeah, these cars ride "disturbingly well" at 100+. I had my V6 Charger up to 125 mph once or twice, and it didn't feel any different than 80.

That was not the top-speed... I never had the chance to find it.

I think those v6 charger top at 127 or 126. I forgot I used to have one a long time ago. It's govern though. How does your mustang feel at those speeds.

There is a member here that owns a 2012 and have driven on the autobahn with it. I forgot how fast he got up too. If I ever want to go 200 on the autobahn. A charger will not get there. Probably going to get a proche or a shleby. There is not a four door sedan that can do 200 is there?

Though I'm not going to say its the smartest thing to do. Might I remind you. This highway was basically completely clean so I was hardly putting anyone in danger. All the cars were in the far right lane on the 3 lane highway while I'm on the far left. As far as dangerous drivers, during my commute from work which I drive 40k plus a year, I rarely ever do 10 over. I have seen plenty of caravans driving 90 plus with soccer signs on the back of their vans while dodging and weaving out of traffic and slamming on their brakes that scares the crap out me.

I like to speed. However I do try to do it when traffic is fairly clear. And I don't think a highway is gonna get any clearer than that. I have gotten in one accident in my life and it was because a caravan driver hit me while I was completely stop at stop sign feom behind because she was texting. So although I know I'm not going to change your mind, that's just my 2 cents.
