Why such a low limit?

So, I might be watching too much Top Gear lately but a question keeps popping up in my head. Why is the V6 Mustang have such a low top speed limit?

Every time I watch TG they mention a car's top speed and its usually limited to around 150ish mph. Even cars like a ford focus. Why is our V6 stang limit to 112? (or is it 116?)

Obviously no sane person should be going that fast on any road in the US but if I were to go to a track with a long enough straight, isn't that limit pretty low?

Are the numbers they report in TG only for Europe?

Can anyone shed some light on this please?
