I am wondering if anyone knows what the top speed of the R1T will be. I know it’s fast 0-60 but will it be governed to only do 120mph? Like most cars
Clean the gene poolWhy would you ever want to go faster than 125mph in a big SUV or truck??
That actually sounds like a fun day....Clean the gene pool
With a low center of gravity and the right tires (and brakes) this could be fun on a closed road course! I’m curious about the balance, but I bet the weight is distributed equally on all four corners.
I’ll have to do a track day with my wife in the Z06! We'll race for pick slips. 🤣
The "U" tire speed spec is 124mph maximum. I don't know if Rivian is using U tires, but if they are, then that would explain the limit.Maybe they tested it at 130 and found it too unstable so limited it to 124. I know a lot of the Germans limit to 155 because of some Autobahn rule
Yeah I'm sure our R1T's will be looking for ICE pickups to leave in the dust...That actually sounds like a fun day....
I guess some people just do not understand not everyone has the same wants and desires. For instance I would never want to climb Mount Everest but who am I to ask why people who do want to. We are all wired differently and that is a big part of what makes life exciting....
That could be part of it but if they wanted higher speed they could have baked that into the tires as these are custom designed for Rivian.I'm reasonably sure that the limitation is from tire limitations. I wouldn't want to have tire failure at those speeds.
The 155 mph limit was just an agreement among the German manufacturers for "standard" vehicles. It gets played off as for safety, but a little thought gets you to the point that you realize that if you want to go faster you now have to buy some sort of "limited edition" with all its commensurate markup.Maybe they tested it at 130 and found it too unstable so limited it to 124.
