Lotus Esprit V8 speedometer top speed


Recommended Posts

From my understanding the top speed of the Esprit V8 is 175 mph...

Therefore, why is the stock speedometer on my car calibrated up to 220 mph ?? That's a bit optimistic to say the least...

Just curious...

Every car in the world has a speedo that reads higher than the car's top speed mate. Marketing, or just in case there's a downhill with a tailwind!

It is definately cool.. You can impress others, “hey my car can do 220 mph/340 km/h”..

It is just a little big margin.. Usually cars capable of 175mph will have a speedo of 200mph.. 

Can’t complain though..
