 It's about as fast as a Lamborghini Gallardo (for Gallardo LP 550-2, a.k.a. Valentino Balboni, 2009 model)The Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 model Gallardo has a top speed of 8,900 centimeters per second. The Gallardo can reach speeds of 2,800 centimeters per second in just 3.9 seconds. It's about as fast as The TGV (train) (Train à Grande Vitesse) (for SNCF TGV Réseau, a.k.a. "Network" model, a.k.a. TGV-R) (maximum speed)The TGV Réseau sets have a top speed of 8,900 centimeters per second. The train is capable of travelling the 425 km (264 mi) distance from Paris to Lyon in East-Central France in about two hours. It's about as fast as an Arrow (archery) In other words, the speed of an Arrow (archery) is 1.008 times 8,900 centimeters per second. (250 g arrow fired from 60#/28" bow)A 250 gram arrow will reach speeds of approximately 8,967 centimeters per second when fired from a 60-lb, 28-inch draw bow . Archeological evidence from the Ahrensburg valley near Hamburg, Germany indicates that arrows have been used since at least 11 to 12,000 years ago. It's about as fast as a Porsche 911 In other words, the speed of a Porsche 911 is 1.03 times 8,900 centimeters per second. (for Porsche 911 Type 997 GT2, 2007 model)The Porsche 911 GT2 has a top speed of 9,140 centimeters per second. It takes just 7.4 seconds for the GT2 to accelerate to 4,470 centimeters per second. It's about nine-tenths as fast as The CRH (train) In other words, 8,900 centimeters per second is 0.920 times the speed of The CRH (train), and the speed of The CRH (train) is 1.10 times that amount. (a.k.a. Hexie Hao, 和谐号, a.k.a. 和諧號, a.k.a. Héxié Hào, a.k.a. "Harmony")The CRH-3 train which runs on China's Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Railway are capable of speeds up to 9,700 centimeters per second. Theses train can make the 120 km (74 mi) journey from Beijing to Tianjin in about 30 minutes. It's about one-and-one-tenth times as fast as a Helicopter In other words, 8,900 centimeters per second is 1.130 times the speed of a Helicopter, and the speed of a Helicopter is 0.8850 times that amount. (for AH-64A Apache, a.k.a. Hughes Model 77) (maximum cruise speed)The AH-64 helicopter, one of the primary helicopters used by the United States Army, flies at a top cruise speed of 7,890 centimeters per second. The AH-64 is the primary military helicopter of several nations including the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Japan, and the Netherlands. It's about one-and-one-fifth times as fast as a Skydiver (headfirst) In other words, the speed of a Skydiver (headfirst) is 0.830 times 8,900 centimeters per second. (Head-to-Earth orientation or standing, average conditions, terminal velocity)A head-to-Earth or standing-oriented skydiver's terminal velocity assuming average conditions is about 7,200 centimeters per second. In a typical jump from 3,900 m (13,000 ft), a diver in this orientation will be in freefall for 46 seconds.
