Re: [DML] top speed

If by "racetrack" you mean "off a cliff" a DeLorean might 
make 150mph.  Top speed as quoted by magazines of 
the era were 120-130mph (Car and Driver, May and July
1981) 136mph est (Wheels, June 1981), 117mph measured
(Autocar, June 1981), 109mph measured (Road and Track
December 1981), 120mph estimated (Car and Driver 
December 1981).  There were no cars in any of the 
comparisons (Ferrari 308, Maserati Merak, Corvette, 
Porsche 911) that came closer to 150mph than 140.
