100+ and then you feel the pull?

These cars are really good cars, but I have to differ on your statement on "it shines after 100+". The top end torque in our cars are not so useful. I say, easy to get to 100 but after that the torque curve stays stagnant. The best thrill you get is on 3rd gear.
Of course our cars are limited to 128mph but it can go well over 150mph(with the limiter removed).

Hopefully you are not driving 100+ all the time. Not only you are inviting a fat ticket, but also having yourself and others in danger.
Once in a while taking it to triple digits is fun but still its risky.

Hopefully, you have good tires, brakes and suspension in top shape. Our cars are designed for autobahn so sure it can take it, but when everything in your car is perfect.
Getting a ticket when you are doing 100+ is not fun. Ask me how I know

Have fun.
