I was able to get 113mph in mine (std range AWD) earlier today, it didn’t look like it was going past that.
Max speed is supposed to be 111 for non-GT, and in the 120's for the GT.

Of course under controlled conditions on a closed track...I also achieved the same result. A very obvious limiter occurred at 111 and topped at 113. Extended/AWD

I'm pretty sure the front motor is what limits the top speed in the non-GT AWDs. I can confirm the top speed is just 111. It didn't take too long to get there...

Did you test drive the ER AWD before getting the SR? Wondering how significant the speed and acceleration is
there's been very little in reviews about anything but ER AWD (there's a thread about this point on here somewhere) but the specs suggest it's noticeable:

Pretty sure there is German autobahn video that shows actual 115 mph converted.

Anyone know what those are in REAL units of measure?

Interesting. I was hoping the GT would hit that speed around the 1/4 mile mark.

Model Y performance has a top speed of 155 hits 116 in the 1/4 mile:

According to fords specs It is 124mph for the GT and GT performance, which will officially make it the slowest top speed of any performance ford I would have ever owned when we finally get the chance to actually order it.

Not really what I would class as 'performance' but it is what it is, hopefully ford will price accordingly, as up till now it was really only the model Y performance in the cross over space that had a true performance derivative but with the Kia EV6 GT having a targeted spec of 162mph it adds more options in that playground, so ford may find they need to give the horse a bit more giddy up.

Yeah, I think that may be why the GT was delayed so much. Purely speculation, but I would hope that maybe they have been using the last year to improve on what is not a particularly compelling performance spec - my stock v6 coupe had a top speed of 121. As far as I know 😜

To be fair, I don’t care that much about top speed. My last three cars could do 155-175mph but I have no desire to ever get anywhere near those limits. Maybe it’s good for bragging rights?

I do take every car to the drag strip though, would stink to hit the limiter near the 1/4 mile.
