Understandably whenever there is a discussion about cars, top speed will invariably come up. My question is; does speed actually matter? I mean when do we ever hit top speed anyway? The fastest I've gone is about 240km/h which was close to, but not, the top speed (it was in my 740Li if you guys were wondering). So whenever I look at cars, yes, I note the top speed but in my mind I know I probably wouldn't ever hit those numbers. To reiterate. Is top speed really all that important to you guys?
EDIT: I just read through what I wrote and I am sorry if its hard to understand or I just repeat myself a lot. I just arrived in London and back in my apartment for a little R&R. Haven't smoked pot in a few months whilst at work in China so I am crazy stoned right now.
