Speedometers can reach stratosphere for a reason

Q What is the story with today's speedometer readings? Most new cars and a lot of used cars have speedometer gauges that go as high as 120 to 160 miles per hour. Why so high? Do they really go that fast or does that, for some reason, make the vehicle more attractive? I can't fathom going that fast with today's speed limits nor would I want to. Our speed limit in the metro area rarely exceeds 65 mph, so why the extended readings?
