No, it depends on the car and whether the manufacturer limits the speed. As an example, BMW limits the maximum speed based on the tires ordered for the car. For the 5 series, Performance tires = 155mph max, all season tires=135mph max.

Not at all. The car I learned in was an ex-NY taxi cab and had a top speed of about 90 mph but a speedometer that maxxed out at 140 mph. For a while in the 1980s American cars were not allowed to indicate speeds above 85 mph.
