In a Feb. 11, 2013 photo, the speedometer of a 2013 Ford Fusion displayed at the Bob Maxey dealership in Detroit. Although current cars with high-horsepower engines can come close to the top speedometer speeds, most are limited by engine control computers. That’s because the tires can overheat and fail at higher speeds. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
