    This might sound stupid to ask, but i´m going to buy a V6 for my wife and was wondering what top speed (for a longer period) it could stand without damage to the engine, driveline, trannsmission etc. She´s commuting 60 km/day mostly autobahn (no speedlimit). Thanks

    From what I've heard, the max limited speed of ~115 mph is safe. Above that and modifications for reinforcement need to be made (tires, driveshaft, etc).

    I personally have gotten mine up to 105 and it felt very solid.

    So are you saying there is a speed limiter installed? Do you remember what the rpm were at 105/115 and what the redline is? Thanks

    Yeah, both of my Mustangs handle high speeds very very well. If anything it feels a bit "floaty". I am planning on adding a kit like the Ford Racing suspension kit to remedy this, but it's really up to the driver. Some have no problem with it, and after you get used to the car and know its limits the car is even more stable.

    Thanks everybody. Its not that my wife would race it too much but on the other side if there´s little traffic and your in a hurry:D . I think an important factor are the tires. Over here almost everybody has a set of Summer- and Wintertires. I would not trust the all season´s on high speeds to much.
