You have to tune it out. Now it goes faster than that
The coupes have no limiter from the factory, and will go plenty fast.

187mph in my last car was deadly quiet and tracked completely straight.........I just ran out of man marbles. At nearly 300' per second you don't have a lot of room for error. Back on topic though, and seriously a concern, at what speed with the convertible top just peel itself away from the car or possibly be damaged in some way?

Lot of threads on this topic, but actually yes the coupes (and verts) are limited to 155, barring a tune. Zl1 coupes are not. The main reason is above 155 the front end begins to lift, they changed that with the zl1 coupe hence no longer speed limited.

Seeing this is the ZL1 area, and the topic was ZL1 Verts, My statement needed no correction about the coupes had no limiter from the factory.

Who ever is saying that only verts are limited is wrong, I have a 2012 SS coupe and I hit 155mph n got the "speed limited" to 155 mph but yes u can get a tune to remove the speed governor. Now 155mph wasn't fast enough for me so I tuned it n so far I've hit 168mph but I was running out of road so I had to start slowing down after that.Now on the ZL1 yes verts are limited and coupes are not, just adding my 2cents

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ZL1 VERTS, AND ZL1 COUPES ONLY. You guys keep bringing up stuff about the SS, that should be done in the SS section and not here.
