On most modern cars with rev limiters you can floor the throttle in neutral and the engine will just lay against the rev limiter. There's no rhyme or reason to do this, and it won't hurt the engine, but it's a rather childish stunt.

I've never done it myself, but it was demonstrated to me about ten years ago by a (Toyota) factory rep with a company test car - a Lexus LS400.

On cars with a manual transmission it would be a disadvantage for a high speed double clutch downshift if the rev limiter engaged lower than the normal point.
