SVT top's out at 95?

today i saw a new ferrari going down I65, i was going to try to catch up by apparently the SVT has a limiter at 95?? It was either at 90 or 95, and the RPMs stopped at 4K. Do they make a chip to eliminate this?

Ford avertises saying it has a top speed of 130 or 135

Were you in 6th gear, most cars won't reach top speed in top gear.

I did read something somewhere that states that the SVT reaches top speed in 5th gear. I can try to find it and send it to you if you'd like.
