You DO have a point!!! My 110 V8 will do well over 100mph BUT once you go much over 70 the fuel consumption gets very scary!!!
There is a big hill on the Heads of the Valley road that most cars will freewheel down and actually accelerate up to about 85mph - my LandRover will do about 40mph - combination of drag from the 4x4 system and aerodynamics of a barn door.
Having said that my mates 360 Spyder will only get up to about 60mph down there - massive tyres and too much downforce I reckon!!!
