Does anyone know how fast the 96 RL really goes?

if you're looking for a racecar, not fast enough. speedo says what...160? im think it'll cut out around 145 or so. but why would you want to drive that fast anyway...

Well when my '97 TL was stock, I got it up to 145 on a closed course. I'd imagine the RL being somewhat close to that or just under (due to the extra weight)

i got to 148-150 then it felt like the car could go no more. also at that speed the rl handling sucks.

Well FWD does suck, the front is doing all the work, and the rear tires do nothing. Just don't accelerate or brake when in a turn or u'll slide alot.
