I have had 132mph in mine according to my GPS I didn't want to go any faster felt like the car was shaking to bits still had a few 1000 revs to go aswell so I think i could have had more. :D

When mine was new i had 130 on the speedo as you come off the M27 onto the M3 on the concrete dual carriageway bit a few miles up on the way to London , flat straight and level but you have to allow for inaccuracy so it was probably just over 120.
Been round Millbrook hillclimb and banked circuit at 155 in a big Vauxall Senator barge, that was fun.

There is a fair bit of innaccuracy, even on my standard wheel + tyre size combo the GPS said i was doing 92 and the speedo was just over 100.  :shock:

i got 103 out of my 5 but it was running rough and turbo boost kept goin flat if you no what i mean. the gt punto we got 117 with a bit moe to go in the wet on the wat to bolton. the punto handels like the titanic compared t my 5 so the R5 is the better car in my opnion.

When i first got my 5, was standard. Was behind a s2000 at the lights, he was amazed to see me on his bumper all the way upto a 120, before we both had to slow. Good job to as dont think id have wanted to go any quicker in it, had alot more left in it though.

120 in a 5 feels alot faster than in any other car lol!
