251 increased speed limit for nafta

Does anyone know what this data card item means? Why is NAFTA involved, anyway?

It increases the electronically-limited max speed of the car from 155 to a higher level somewhere around 175-185mph IIRC.

NAFTA probably just on there because all cars with US/Mexico/Canada delivery comply with the 155mph max speed and increasing it would be authorized for all perhaps, though I am not 100% sure about that part.
