    500 GQ speed limiter?

    I noticed a couple of times now that when I am driving along a nice big highway with the sport button engaged closing in on 144km/h the turbo just dumps. I am guessing there is a speed limiter??

    if so, is there a way to turn that off? Not that I want to go faster cuz that would be illegal....but....still like to turn it off.

    thanks for your time

    Is the top back when you did this? Just had a similar question the other day. Here's some info with links:

    Welcome to the forum.

    Hard or soft top makes a huge difference as Chris has mentioned.

    Hope you find some answers in the links provided but if not plenty of good people here to help.

    I believe all gq's are soft tops which would mean it's the limiter with the the top open.

    I have had my Gq up to 140 mph ( bone stock btw) on the interstate the only speedlimiter that I have found is with the top down.
