Speedometers have often been shared across multiple vehicles. Each modern vehicle will be electronically limited to a certain speed. It likely will not be same as the max on the speedometer

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.

no, you can have a speedometer that reaches 200 km but then the real top speed can vary

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.

no. in nearly all cases it will read well in excess of top speed a car can reach. several reasons why but no need to go into details.
