Speed limiter (VMAX)

A V-max speed limiter limits a vehicle to a certain preset maximum speed. Many vehicles with a speed limiter can therefore go much faster than the stated 250km/h, for example.

Many sporty German cars from brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW and Volkswagen, have a so-called gentlemen’s agreement” decided to limit the cars to 250 km/h or just above or below depending on model.

For example a, BMW 750ix G11 is limited at 260km/h, without speed limiter this car is already going towards 300km/h and is the car also tuned with vmax off, then it is already going towards 320km/h.

Through a modification in the engine management system, the speed limiter can be deactivated. Notice. Because the car will have a higher top speed, it is advisable to reassess the braking system and tire speed index to see if they are suitable for the higher speeds.
