Only till 180km/h...

I visit a lot of Japanese websites and I always see thay Japanese cars only go till 180 km/h or sometimes till 200 km/h



Why is that? Are they really limited to 180km/h or how does it work?

Re: Only till 180km/h...

thats odd because the jap spec models have more HP then the NA models...and our s go to 220km/h

seems they also have a higher redline.

You must be kidding...do you honestly think they'll put a speedometer that reads to 180mph on the 3?

Japan uses km/h.
