I know of no car today that has a governor. Cars are computer controlled and have either a rev limiter or a fuel shut off or both. The purpose is to limit the speed of the car, and/or the revolutions that the engine can turn.

There is no governor on this car. The speed is computer controlled by a rev limiter or fuel shutoff.

The most common use of a governor is to limit the top speed of the vehicle...most newer cars have them and the speed is set by the manufacturer...they can be changed with a flash programmer for that specific vehicle.
