all US Sc had the same top gear, .8214, and cwp, RoW '80-83 had a bit taller, .7857. So it depends on aero, tires and max rpm used. Neglecting aero, theoretical top for a US SC is 152mph w/ 245/45 x16 & 6800, 155mph w/ 215/60 x15 & 6800. 153mph w/ 225/50 x16 & 6800.

RoW '80-83 w/ 225/50 x16 & 6800 is 159

Now actual recorded stats are 140,141 for '78-79, 146,148 for '80-81 & 148 for a very fast '83RoW SC sport cab.

For comparison recorded tops for 3.2 Carrera are 149 to 158 clustering ~154
