You should stop by the dealer for a test, you will find out these are true speeds.

I supplied one ealier this year with a Verado 275 (picture attached) it runs 66mph with full fuel and 4 people, it's owner told me the other day that its over 5mph quicker than his mates 8m that is fitted with a 300 Suzuki

Exactly, yet Cougar (Steve C) claim 75!
