Re: how fast ????

Got to 140+ from a standing start 'on the track'. Still pulling and 1k or so revs left. Slowed down by other Alfas that were on track at the same time.
We had agreed to circuit in formation, but I was left at a 'marshall station' for a bit longer than they were so had to play catch up.
Over took some (who were travelling 100+) but merged into the middle of the group.
A V6 156 should be good for the advised top speed of 143 <--I stand to be corrected, given enough road/conditions/etc/.

Re: how fast ????

I managed 150mph in my V6 GT. This was Tom Tom verified. But I don't have proof as proof is evidence and that speed can constitute dangerous driving on its own without any other contributing factors which I can't condone. Its not big nor clever

Re: how fast ????

130MPH is the fastest I got in mine, it would have gone on a bit more I suppose as the top speed is meant to be around 143MPH or so, but I had to slow down,
