To the above comment. MY friend recorded it doing 120mph. If you want to see the video, let me know. I have fitted a Pipercross induction kit to it, which gives a few mph more.

I agree with the above comment, I had a Saxo VTR with an induction kit and nice exhaust system, and it would top out at 117 flat out with absolutely nothing left, so 120 for the Furio, I really don't think so.
You've only had 117 out of your VTR and I've done 120 in my furio?. Doesn't make sense, but I have the video.
The size of your wheels effects your top speed. I have 15"s on mine and its indicating 120 but it could really be doing 115 or it could be doing 125. I would think that if you could fit 17"s on a saxo you would be able to go a little faster. And please will all you know-all furio haters stop commenting and saying its not possible unless you can prove it.
Two lessons can be learnt here:
1, Always do a decent test drive BEFORE you buy the car.
2, If you want VTR\VTS performance, buy a VTR\VTS.
Hi, I'm the guy who has done 120 in the furio. Last week I bought a VTR and today I took it on the motorway for a little test. Got it to 125 and didn't want to push it any further. It seemed to be flat out anyway. I'm still sticking too the furio doing 120 though... with my video.
In all fairness I have never been on here before, but I have had a vtr and it was amazing, but I also have a furio for my girlfriend and they can do 120mph trust it does happen.
The Saxo Furio is basically the same car as the Saxo VTR apart from the alloys and the rear discs & speedo. As far as speed goes, it will do 120mph+. The guys that say it won't who have a VTR/VTR are just jealous that they have spent a bit more cash for a car that does the same top speed, unlucky VTR/VTS people.. :)
A 1.4 furio will not drive like a VTR/VTS, regardless of top speed, which is also way off. All being standard a VTS will do 127 a VTR will do 117 so a furio is not gonna do 120. Maybe 115 down hill, and your speedo my read 120.
As for a Furio doing 120mph+...NO CHANCE! It may read it on your speedo, but most speedo's over-read. It's simply not geared to do 120mph+. I've seen VTS' read 140mph on their speedo's, but cannot achieve this due to rev limit/gearing.
Having owned both a Furio and VTR you can take this comment seriously. The Furio reads 118mph flat out. The VTR reads 126mph flat out. Of course these arnt true figures just pointing the difference between the two. Comparing a Furio to a VTS is a bit silly though to be honest.
Look listen hear!! I have a Saxo 1.4 Furio and it is the quickest 1.4 I have ever driven, I have sat nav and 2 speedometers in my Furio and it CAN hit 120mph+. The car is quick; all the VTR owners need to know that the car with the right driver behind the wheel can hit 120mph+!!!
A Saxo Furio can hit a 120mph without trouble. I have 3 speedometers in my car; 1 on my sat nav, the standard speedo and an extra. They all read between 118-122mph. All the VTR lovers need to know that there's not much difference between the two. Citroen trying to make the VTR faster than the Furio, but made it a lot heavier if you look at the stats, and due to that Citroen acknowledged that the VTR can only do 6mph faster than Furio, so look at the stats people. Although I have to agree being a Furio owner that a Furio is no different, and neither is a VTR to a VTS.
I've had both a Furio and a VTR. The VTR is faster all round, and even then it is not a "fast" car. Anyone can do 120mph on a motorway, - press the pedal and keep it in a straight line. I'm not going to argue with you about it doing 120 as that's what I've done myself in it, well the speedo said so anyway. The VTR would go to an indicated 130mph.
The Furio DOES do 120mph regardless of rev limiting, I have been a mechanic for the last 18 years, we put it on our rolling road, it maxed out at 123.2 Mph, The VTR maxed out at 126.4 Mph, The VTS maxed out at 131.1 Mph. Clearly the ones who deny it hitting 120, give or take a MPH, are not the drivers they think they are.
I have had a Furio and a VTR. The Furio indicated 118mph flat out and the VTR indicated 126mph. The furio is 25bhp less so you would think it would be nearer to 118 than 123. I have a much quicker car now anyway, but through experience, I have learnt not to prat around at those speeds. And no I didn't get caught, or crash.
A Furio is quite slow compared with newer cars. The VTR is about average and the VTS is still pretty swift. Although the VTS engines seem to go wrong more than the VTR according to owners. I had a VTR for a year or so and didn't have any problems.
