GT's dont have a limiter but the 03-04 Cobras do. Its about 155 mph or so. I hit mine yesterday on the Thurway. Kind of sucks b/c my 99 didnt have one so it could run just over 160 mph. But the 04 gets there so much quicker

GT's with 17 inch wheels from the factory had no speed limiters
GT's with 16 inch wheels from the factory were limited to 130 something.

Omg. You have to be one of the luckiest men alive. Did you do it on a main road?

I live out in the country on a farm, so i have pelenty of cop-free roads to play around on.
