135 km/h is 84 mph.

Since when did the yanks mess with kilometres? I would say that was 135 MPH.

2 X Supercharged Big Block Chevy's - 1,200 hp each (at least)

Yeah, buy it.

I reckon the driver was a wee bit too casual to be doing 135mph.

A couple of 225's on a cat gives 80mph+

Two 800hp-ish mercruisers on that cat would probably do 135mph I reckon...

Jonny Fuller/Dirk Diggler/Cookee would know best!
