My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Henry. Thanks for contacting us today. Although a vehicle might have a "top speed" (on the speedometer) - most vehicles are limited for safety or government regulations. A Land Cruiser should NEVER accelerate past 80 MPH as they are not intended for high performance or built for higher speeds.
