If you go on the Rockstar social club site it shows you the fastest speed you've done with each character.

 

Mine is 180mph with Franklin in the Buffalo.

 

What's yours?

 

Also, seems a bit silly that they didn't put a speedo in the game if it is measuring it anyway!

Mine used to be 147, I just checked a couple mins ago and it said my fastest so far is 185 with a Buffalo.

I have a friend that has a recorded time of 240mph. I am still not sure how he got that or what he did it in.

I'm irritated that they didn't include it. Also, that they don't allow us to use km for distance.

Is there certain places you can go to reach these speeds, as I've driven pretty much full length down the highways without having to slow down at all and yet still nowhere NEAR 250+mph.

 

edit: I also use Franklin and his fully-modded Buffalo

My top speeds are all under 160mph and I just can't seem to break it! I'll try driving down some mountains...

Apparently mine is only 123mph with Michael in an Elegy. That's disappointing.

 

Pretty sure i've hooned it down the freeway, but i guess not. Plus, i'm determined to set the highest speed on a bike, seeing as Bikes > Cars :p BRB!

231mph / 372kph in a Futo...

I think the trick is to find the right road and use Franklin's special ability to turn corners. For some reason when you do a tight turn using his special the car seems to get a massive speed boost, so a long straight road like the freeway isn't necessarily the best.

165mph with Franklin in an F620.

 

I need to do more fast driving, that's weak. Time to bust out Michael's fully modded Cheetah, methinks.

220 with the adder. I really don't know why the adder struggles to go faster than a cheetah and others.. it's suppose to be the fastest car.

How are you guys getting these speeds?? I stole an Adder a few hours ago (stock, I assume) and went on the highway to see how fast I could get and I only got up to 120mph, WTF???

Scratch that thing I just said about going around corners, just blew past my top speed of 231mph.

 

Took the Adder (modified) for a top speed run around the freeway and hit 281.30mph / 452.7kph.

It seems like the closer you get to other cars while using Franklin's special, the faster you go.

Also, that they don't allow us to use km for distance.

Maybe they'll make a GTA Paris lol

174 mph in the RH8, with Frank.

I'm curious if you have to do a speed run in certain places, so it will record. I remember on certain freeways, there is occasionally a cop car that looks like it is monitoring traffic, in what would be the emergency lane -- I'm sure you have all plowed into him at one point or another, as I have. Maybe you have to do it in front of him?

Just got mine to 258mph with the adder, and in heavy thundery rain. Hand breaking at 258 didn't go well...
