Top speed is limited to 250km/h ?

I don't know. The likelihood that it would naturally top out at precisely 250 and not 249 or 251 is slim. That said, it is also unlikely that it could go much beyond ~265 kph. It's equation of horsepower and not much else. The wagon body type is probably better aerodynamically that shorter hatchback, but probably slightly worse than sedan. I am speculating here.

Update: There is option to remove limiter which brings up the top speed to 263 kph.

Amazing how precise I was in predicting the actual top speed of this car. Actually kind of scared of myself (am I AI?) :D

The Seat Leon Cupra R ST 4Drive is the same? Same engine, same size,also 4wd. But lighter than the VW. Does it matter at top speed? I dont think.

It's virtually identical.
