With enough money, a Honda civic will do it! Just need a good suspension, good engine with forged components, a big turbo, and maybe a wet shot of nitrous. May not stay together long, but it could be done. Hell, we could get marn's waggy to do it if we had enough money! Lots of boost and nitrous! Again, may not stay together long, but, hey it would be fun. A cobra mustang with the under drive charger pulley would get close with the right gearing. Add a wrt shot of nitrous an you would be really close. The trick is doing it NA without power adders. That's where the real skill/knowledge and money come in. A guy that works with me has had his srt neon to over 180, per his nhp buddy.

my 83 honda civic has 6 yellow stickers and a coffee table on the back it will do that in a heart beat. The best thing is when I have it maxed out, I still shift, just like in the movies.

Stickers and spoilers add power too, forgot to add that to the list. The movies were the worst thing to happen to the street races since patrol cops! It brought all the wannabes out and they started causing crashes and starting trouble. Ruined it for everyone. It was nothing like the movies. Usually nothing ever is.

I know it's not a jeep, but the 2013 mustang will have a variant that'll do over 200 mph right from the factory. Pretty amazing ...

The 69 dodge Daytona chargers were doing 200 mph in 69 and 70! Nothing special done to them but headers and maybe a cam with carb work. That's impressive!

I got my prelude to max out at around 140. Rev limiter in 5 gear, the gearing was really short. I actually did use my 100 shot nitrous too...lol

the mini cooper S is good for about 145... from what I have heard. though that was only off the gps, the speedo might read around 150 @ that speed if I was a guessing man

The new srt challenger is supposedly good for 171 out of the box. Add about 8-10 psi from a supercharger, and my best guess would be 200-205. If you're crazy, nitrous wet shot to about 215-220 in short bursts.

ALOT of money in that car. To my buddy the cash wasn't a problem.
Car made over 800hp on c-16 and 20psi. Got into alot of problems with it so we parted it out and split the cash. And i bought a jeep.

How did I know it was gonna be forced induction? I'm sure it was fun. High boost too! Bet it put you in the seat when turbo lag went away!!
