Car & Driver test drive specifies a 135 mph top speed (electronically controlled?) What's that for a car in this class?

My '10 Si is topped 132 mph (215 km/h) with 197HP. Top it 135 mph for 310HP? I'd think at least 149 mph (240 km/h) is needed compared to the competition.

When the hell do you plan on driving 240 kmh?

... This information is available on the Lexus site (since they want to compete), and all the Germans (predictably).

Most often, cars are speed limited by the speed ratings on the tires they install at the factory.

I remember older Camaros being limited to UNDER 100mpg because of the cheap tires Chevrolet installed.

As a Road&Track reader, I saw GS350 (142 mph) 535i (155 mph) C350 (155 mph) A6 (155 mph). RLX (135 mph) :-(
I was just wondering why cut on tires quality in this class (tires seem to change according to market US or Europe or ROW). I don't plan driving at this speed. Don't worry.
