2009 Audi A4 Avant: Set the Speed Warning at 150 mph

May 25, 2009

A speed warning chime is just dumb. A speed warning chime you can set at 150 mph? Well, that's just cool.

Thing is, I'm pretty sure our A4 Avant 2.0T couldn't reach a buck fifty if it were driven by Helio Castroneves off the top of the Empire State Building. I haven't driven the car faster than 110 mph, but I'd bet this is a 135 mph car, tops. And that's downhill with a tailwind. Yeah, I know it has a 180 mph speedometer, but that's just fantasy.

Anybody out there know what this car's top speed is? If not, I may just have to find out for myself the fun way.
