Paul Walker

I Once Hit 185 MPH...

On The Freeway!

Paul Walker liked his cars fast fast fast -- in fact, he once boasted about hitting a top speed of 185 MPH -- and it wasn't on a racetrack ... it was on a freeway.

"The Fast & The Furious" star -- who died in a fiery car crash on Saturday -- made the revelation on GTChannel back in 2011 ... while taking a Nissan GT-R out for a test spin in Japan.

"The fastest I've ever gone is 184 to 186," Walker says on the video .... and then he reveals how fast he was clocked on an actual racetrack.

As TMZ reported ... law enforcement believes speed was a factor in the crash of the Porsche Carrera GT that killed Walker and his friend Roger Rodas in Santa Clarita, CA ... although it was Rodas -- not Walker -- who was driving at the time of the collision.

Why is this even relevant? It doesn't matter how fast he has personally drove, he was NOT driving when he was killed.

Here we have speed freaks treating public roadways like they are their own personal racetracks. Nobody could have predicted someone would get killed.

Sadly, this is exactly why the man is dead. Thank God, he didn't take more innocence with him because of his need to speed. Immature and stupid. I hope that other's learn from this tragedy.

I'm glad they were both killed before they could cause an accident, harming an innocent victim on the road!
