Grand Voyager with a V6 will do 100 no problem. However, considering how poorly it handles in general, and how much the wind plays havoc with them at more sedate speeds, I wouldn't recommend it.

My XJ could do 100mph if I drove it off a tall enough cliff. The thing is noisy enough at 70mph. I don't want to know what it sounds like going any faster than that.
