    well there is a speedo error for sure.

    i checked it using the speedometer in my android phone that uses gps sattelites to show the speed.

    when the speedo in the car shows 100, the gps device shows 92. but after upgrading to 16" alloys and 205/55 profile tyres, the error reduced to 96 when the speedo showed 100.



    you can check my top speed here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQAF7335eYY&feature=player_detailpage.


    this was on blr-hyd highway.


    my car did a 190kmph in stock condition before i changed my rims.

    0-100 - 15.0 sec

    The Conditions were very much favorable with no wind and a cool climate ( 24 c outside).

    165 / 170 / 180 ?? It isnt safe guys. Roads are littered with unmanaged roadblocks, hidden bumps, potholes. I mean 120-130 is fine but 160 and above is just pushing it a little far from comfort. Don't put your life at risk.

    On Pune - Mumbai Highway I have seen many un-managed maintenance work happening all year, without warning signs, the road is uneven in places and can launch a car at that speed.

    Drive responsibly please.

    Grande Punto 1.3 90 HP
    The top Speed I touched on my Punto 90HP was 170+(should be around 175). I am sure Punto 90 HP can take more speed but I cannot take :).

    The average I got the best was 21kmpl and worst was 14kmpl. In city I get 14-16 KMPL and Highway around 16-18 KMPL. I think this info also will help.

    175kmph is the true top speed of 90HP.Anything beyond that is speedo error.

    Correction. According to manual the "admitted" top speed for various variants are as below.

    1.2 8v - 135 kmph
    1.4 16 - 165 kmph
    1.3 MJD 75 BHP - 165 kmph
    1.3 MJD 90 BHP - 165 kmph

    Also, I have few queries, at what RPM do you think the GP MJD 75 HP will achieve 165 kmph? Also what RPM levels are generally safe?

    I am highly disappointed with the progress of my punto 1.3 after 120 . I was not able to catch Dezire Vxi despite giving full throttle . Whats the use of superb stability when u cannot show to others especially Maruti what Fiat is capable of.

    True. After 120 engine seems exhausted and it takes a while with good efforts and some slight down slopes to take it further (lack of upright boost post 120!). Also, post 120, in my opinion, engine gets loud, and scares me or rather tells me boss this is my limit if you cross it you will have it from me :D
