Top Speed Of European '07 Sts V And Xlr V

Harry I have a copy of the latest French car magazine Sport Auto that did a review of the recently homologated European versions of the XLR V and STS V. The magazine's technical page says that they are both limited to 250 kmh (155 mph) just like the US versions. I suspect that they were brought into line with the gentleman's accord that exists in Germany regarding the top speeds of the standard luxury sedans of the German manufacturers. Obviously this does not include M or AMG. I think this was done because they dont really want to irritate the Green lobby in Germany that is constantly clamoring for speed limits on the highways.
