The Honda Civic speedometer reads up to 150 mph, but it actually tops out at about 115-120 mph. I guess that's just the car manufacture way of making you think the car can even go that fast.































Same with the IROC Z-28. The car manufacture didn't intend for you to go anything over 115 mph so that's probably why it stops there.

the civic may actually go faster depending on the year and trim lvl of both the civic and the camaro i cant say exactly wut they would actually top out at but most cars dont actually reach the top speed on the speedo and even if they do they are electronically limted and dont allow u to go any faster. the simple answer is it doesnt matter cus you shouldnt be driving that fast lol jk
