Default C7 top 200mph indicated

Or so this video would have you believe.
No audio, apparently done at night, with a grainy, low res video and flashing reflections as if going under freeway lights. Strange downshifts on the decel. Maybe that's kosher, I dunno, just a bit of something to watch.

Video "game".

The "freeway" lights don't seem to speed up to match the speed.

First, isn't rev cut off 6600? That video shows 7k. Also didn't a recent dyno video demonstrate that the speed cut off is 192 MPH? Which video game is it btw? That's why it's grainy and no sound. Clear with sound and you would be able to tell easy.
