Say it isn't so....according to a press release Volvo says it will limit the top speed of its new cars to 112 mph in all markets beginning next year.

This is part of Volvo’s aim to eliminate all fatal crashes in its cars by the year 2020. There are also other measures Volvo is considering such as an automatic speed restriction in school zones and near hospitals.

People simply do not recognize the danger involved in speed, says Jan Ivarsson, one of Volvo Cars’ leading safety experts.
