The speedometer of a 1953 Corvette is seen at the GM Heritage Center in Sterling Heights, Mich. Although current cars with high-horsepower engines can come close to the top speedometer speeds, most are limited by engine control computers. That's because the tires can overheat and fail at higher speeds. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
