Subarus are governed to specific top speeds using an electronic limiter.
139 mph for the Outback according to Car & Driver.
(found via online search - didn't bother trying to find 2018 specs)
Top speed: 139 mph
0 to 60 mph: 7.1 seconds
Remember the Outback is top heavy. You don't want race or speed with an
Outback. Get a WRX STI if you want to do that.
Top speed (drag limited): 159 mph
0 to 60 mph: 5.3 seconds
Bringing a stock SUV to a curvy race will get you some snickering.
Thanks. Those numbers are a good bit higher than I ever expected so maybe
the speedo isn't so bad after all. I've never had a car above 132mph (on a
legit track) but it was a 1969 1600cc Nissan Fairlady roadster and had some
racing tweaks. Anybody remember Blue Streak racing tires? ;-)
