The answer is No
In last Saturday’s Toronto Star, Vitess Rider Denis Cyr openly admitted to his readers doing 93km/h in a 50km/h-zone. This created a bit of a stir: some even suggesting the need for speed limiters. We would like to address this issue.
Although some German brands have generally agreed to the implementation of a 250 km/h speed limiter on their vehicles; many of their high-performance models have been exempted – look no further than Quattro GmbH or AMG. Other brands such as Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin have also decided not to join the 250 km/h club; many of their cars go well beyond the 300km/h barrier. Ultra-high performance car makers such as Bugatti or Pagani have road-legal models whose top speed comes close to 400km/h and in some cases slightly beyond that.
In our view the engineer’s job is to design the best possible product for safety, comfort and performance, not to take a moral stance on what speed an individual feels is appropriate given the circumstances.
Vitess will not install speed limiters.
And here’s the beast (without speed limiter)…
