I drove my 1KR 5 speed Yaris to the Nordkapp earlier in the year. While i was driving through Germany on the way back i got it to do 177km/h. I was going down a slight incline and had the wind behind me.

Although it really is kind of taxing driving on the autobahn in a fairly slow car because when you see BMW's and Audis coming up behind you in excess of 200km/h you have to get out of the way fast!

Never really pushed either my Yaris or the previous Echo very hard. Found myself at 140km/90mph a few times with apparently still room left on the throttle.

Without trying too hard, I have done 160 km/h in my 1.3 yaris (clock speed). I recon it still had a bit more to go - maybe 170ish
