I probably have done sprints up to and beyond 130 MPH at least 3 dozen times, if not more dozens. I used to drive KY-Chicago every 2 weeks for almost 2 years and OFTEN would do at least one sprint on each leg of the trip. I know that I was over 135 and 140 on a few occasions but at those speeds, my eyes were glued to the road.

I've hit at least 140 in the Shelby and Im with Nuke. It's a visceral experience that Im not sure I want to repeat again. Fastest ever though was 165 in my buddy's TT supra with the targa top off and I told him to shut it down cuz I had **** to live for.

I've had my car for a little over 3 years. I've never been over 120, I think I hit 125 once or so. Top speed ha never really done anything for me, have never floored 5th gear haha just up to 4th. However I'm all about 0-60 10-80 20-100. And have been over 100 in 4th several times over. These motors can handle it no problem

In stock form I'd agree with that observation to an extent. It's always important to keep in mind that the cost difference in the states between the M5 and the mustang itself could be described as dire. However, I've not raced an M5, X6, Audi...etc... in a heads up or rolling race that has yet to beat my Shelby. There are plenty of examples where money has been pumped into mustangs in modifications and aftermarket that push it's performance well beyond the vehicles you would cite and still cost less.

Then again...let's not mistake the M5 or any BMW for a proper supercar which seems to be the flavor of the moment in Europe. Compared to any Lambo or Ferrari or Porsche, any BMW is a hunk of junk. Just because it's fast doesnt mean a BMW is cool. The only BMW that has ever been cool is the ones Jason Statham drives and that's because he can knock our teeth through our skulls.

I once had mine over 150 and it was still pulling but that was probably very stupid.

I installed my whole lowering kit and accessories, and pulled the torque on every bolt...my only worry is the RTR chin splitter I installed...it uses those plastic fasteners that I have zero faith in. I guess I could replace them all with stainless fasteners and lock nuts and see what she can do...I just broke 6K miles.

In stock form, I think I had a few sprints like nuke, 135+, didn't feel bad at all.
Supercharged, I took it to a closed course and eventually got it to over 160, getting your tires balanced goes a long way eliminating the floaty feeling, the rest is suspension upgrades.

And now with the turbos...
