4-cylinder: 4500 rpm, 150 km/h
6-cylinder: 4500 rpm, 160 km/h

Cars with diesel engines: 3500 rpm, 150 km/h

Do not suppose pressing of a pedal of an accelerator before the position corresponding to full opening throttle заслонки or a mode of the maximum acceleration.

After run of the first 2000 km it is possible to increase turns and speed gradually.
