The Peregrine falcon is the fastest anjmal in the world. It can reach over 200mph in a dive which is a bit faster than most of us can drive
160kmh is the top I've gone and that was pretty scary (in a car )
Anyone here reach 200mph, legally of course

Nope, 167 mph is my top speed so far. I once blew two rear tires at 144 mph. That was fun.

160 kph is only 99 mph. That was scary?

Depends...99 mph down a suburban street with speed bumps and stop signs would be pretty scary!

Pushed over 170 mph in the SLK on a nice flat stretch with over 2 mile visibility, it was nice and stable, felt very safe.

165 mph at Bruntingthorpe two-up on the Duc.

Matched that as passenger in a TVR Cerbera a couple of years later, also at Brunty.
