Yeah... so I can take Franklin and a highly modified super car and only hit 170 mph... where the hell is everybody going to go 200-250 miles per hour?
Do I have to drive using his special ability when I'm at my perceived highest speed? And also how does everyone get those fancy speeding tickets I keep seeing in pictures on this forum... are you actually being pulled over?

I should also mention that my driving ability is 100 percent on all three characters.
Michaels top speed 131mph in a carbonizzare
Trevor's top speed 126 In an adder
Franklin's top speed 169 in an adder
All three cars fully completely modified.
I usually try my top speed runs in the northeast area of the map along the long highway As it turns back towards the city...

Good question.  Your top speed (in the form of a ticket) can be found online at Rockstar Social Club.  You do not get pulled over.

 

As far as top speed, I floored a tricked out Bugati Veyron and my top speed is only 121.  I have no idea how i'm supposed to top that.

did 144 in a buffalo.... none modded. i think you have to pass a cop on the motorway at high speed or certain areas in the city... maybe where possible speed cameras are.

My best was 277 in a fully modified Adder using Franklin. I'd suggest going down one of the long straight avenues through the west side. There's one that runs parallel to the street with the western-most movie theater. Go up the hill a bit near the Kortz Center and floor it. Make sure you're using Franklin though; you'll need to use his ability quite a bit.

That makes sense now.  Once in a while I will see a cop on the side of the road.

Do you REALLY need to pass a cop to record your speed?

I was wondering also. Basically, use franks ability at or near top speed when passing a speed camera, like one of them cop cars on the side facing the road on some highways. Got it.

277 Mph huh? Where the hell on the map can you get up to that kind of speed?

Is it best to try top speed runs at like 2 am on a Sunday for hopefully less traffic?

People wondering how you get over 200 obviously arent paying attention to the answers people are posting.

 

1.)Get a fast car.

2.) Mod it.

3.) Take it out to the highway on the west coast.

4.) Hit the acceleration and wait til you think youre hitting your top speed.

5.) Activate Franklins ability

6.) Keep on the acceleration

7.) Inter and exit Franklins ability regularly

 

Every time you go into his ability at full speed. It speeds you up.

Aaaaaaaaawwwwwwww sh*t! Click in click out special driving mode worked! 209 In my first run with the tricked out adder...

So now are Michael and Trevor left out of the fun? No crazy top speeds for their cars?

I haven't been able to get faster than 257 on the freeways, so I decided to try my luck on the streets of LS. I ended up getting pissed after hitting a couple cars and losing speed, so I started doing drive bys on traffic. Then I got into a police chase and ended up with a new max from it. haha

There's a secret repair shop in Paleto Bay that sells Nitro (NOS).

Don't tell anyone.

This is a common question which seriously boggles my mind.

 

I don't see how people can't see the Freeway stretches of road when they open up the map, it's clearly visible and with a little bit of common sense applied the Top Speed of ANY car can be achieved.

 

In Single Player / Multiplayer, just stand outside Franklins "Aunty's" house and open up the map. Set a waypoint marker all the way at the top of the map near Paleto Bay, you'll see the GPS route shows a clear open stretch of Freeway then it's just a case of dodging traffic if there is any.

 

You can use Franklin's ability in Single Player to get a rather handy speed boost if used correctly, however Franklin's ability is a game mechanic which isn't present Online (for those who didn't know) which basically means you'll be able to achieve the Top Speed of any car in legit circumstances.

Did you just stop reading at "277"? Because I went and spelled out exactly how I got it.

Ok smart guy, explain this:  As Michael I had a fully tricked out Adder floored as I passed a cop.  My top speed still shows 121.

Also, the person who started this thread.
Probably a few others too who found an answer in this thread and thus saw no reason to post.
