The speedometer marking have little to do with the cars actual top speed. It's a marketing ploy.

the gauges can say 600km/h but the car has that stupid government top speed limiter so just look at some vids on utube and find out what the top speed is

It goes up to 250km/h.(155mph).The car never goes as fast as the speedometer shows. They make the speedometer higher incase you modify your car to go faster.

I have a TL3.2 and it is written in the operators manual that it will cut out at 161 km.Can. version in D3 and it just states top speed in D4 which I know from experience is over 210 because I had it there.
