The pic above says 141 MPH and about 6,700RPM, 600RPM above the supposed 6150RPM limiter. The editor of Wheels magazine shit himself when his employees showed him the pic, so they re-touched the pic so it was doing about 115MPH, as if it was in third gear.

So either the limiter didn't work very well (it's meant to be an excellent, accurate one) or Wheels removed the limiter.....
