This agreement is similar to the one in Japan. Over there, manufacturers aren't supposed to build any car over 280ps. This is a strange agreement since you can take a Lancer Evolution off the showroom floor and dyno it at over 300hp. The cars are all advertised as 280ps but in reality they come with more. If you take off the "detune" program in the ECU and increase turbo boost, you can get the power the car was intended to have.
Be sure to note that the Gentleman's agreement between the Japanese manufactures is broken. They're no longer abiding by it.
And not all German cars are limited to 155. The new Bug from what I've heard is limited to 105, because at about 110 or so, it starts producing lift...or at least a considerable amount thereof...
Only in America, if that's the case. Here, you can have a New Beetle do more than that.
