Hi,
I was on the driveway with the engine running (so queit), I thought I would have a quick listen by opening the door. The engine (3.2 V6 petrol) would not rev past 4,000 rpm (tacho red lines at about 6,500). Not sure if I have a problem or if VW have introduced some kind of rev limiter when the engine is not under load, i.e. gear selector in park position. Has anyone had a similar experience? apart from this, the engine sounds normal and runs well.

It's a safety feature, revving puts huge strain on the oil seals in automatic gearboxes.
