Re: Actual top speeds

First Audi that I am aware of that is speed governed is the 92 S4 - limited
to about 130 mph. I've had my 91 200q close to 150 - just over 6k rpm in
5th. I agree - the car feels great in tripple digits. Averaging 100mph for
over an hour is fun  :-) Gotta love those Montana hiways.
