Default Volvo to limit all new cars to 112mph

Not that there are many Volvo owners here, but I do love the V60 Polestar Wagon.


But how would you like a near 400hp car with a limited top speed of 112mph. Fail.

I mean, I don't think many people are going to be tracking their Volvo's anytime soon...so the use for 100+ is pretty limited

I don't see this as much of surprise, considering Volvo is trying to eliminate deaths in their vehicles in the very near future.

I really like pretty much all the new Volvos and realistically I shouldn’t be driving over 100

I think that's a Vulvo.

Limited to 112 mph? What if I have to run from the cops?

I've certainly never taken mine to 112. Probably should see where she cuts out one day.

Then again a 400hp vehicle at 112 within sanity weight wise is like fucking a hooker and not nutting.

A simple bit of code saves Volvo a lot of money. Don't need 150 mph tires for one thing. Just that one item could save Volvo what? $200 or so per car?

You want to go over 112 in your Volvo? Buy tires and a tune that turns off the limiter. That's what I did in my Cobra. IIRC, they were limited to 155 mph originally.

You know...it could be a really nice insurance loophole. If you could buy a 400hp Volvo limited to 112...insurance might be much cheaper. My 155 mph limited car is raping me on insurance costs...and I'm turning 50 with a perfect driving record.
