:o Actually, it was a surprise to me and I didn't realize it until I was editing the photo, as I rarely look down at the lower numbers in the panel. That max speed must have happened at some earlier point in time, as resetting the trip meter does not affect that max speed reading. On a straight windless level road the car maxes out at 81-82mph, so I tell people "it does over 80" - higher than any legal speed limit in the USA.
