I always assumed the LS400 was governed at a bit over 115mph.  I guess the
driver of the one I was "pacing" just backed off about then. My poor lil'
90Q just kept
pulling(very slowly) to ~135mph when the rev limiter ruined my fun...
Note: of course there were no small children/furry critters/low-flying
birds/cars(besides the LS400)/stalled garbage trucks/family of ducks
crossing/ and police nazis in/on/around the road.  Oh yea, I took a
picture at an indicated ~125mph (different time, no racecar Lexus around)
and the MPG display read something like ~14mpg! I really question the
accuracy of that thing now!
