no - its a van - you don't decide that the DVLC/manufacturer/EU does.
How you register it, use it, insure it makes no difference to the speed limit.
Does the average copper realise its not a car - no. But when did you last see an average copper pull someone for speeding, either its automated cameras (and for example mobile cameras on bridges with ANPR will "know" the limit for your vehicle) or a traffic officer - who may know the rules.
