Speed limited?

Some of the new cars state that the speed is electronically limited.

Are there ways to remove this limit and if so, how difficult and costly is it to do so? Do many people opt to remove the limit?

The 1981 280zx turbo was the first car that was electronically limited for top speed.

It was limited at 136mph.

It did not have a rev limiter though.

It would go almost 150 if you don't mind breaking redline by 800rpms.

The ls430 will go about 165mph if not for the limiter at around 124.

It's shape is deceptively clean from a drag standpoint.
