Tinny, I think that's the speed at which the vehicle turns to match your camera direction, and not the movement speed of the camera panning.
Jedispy, it might be possible to make a user controlled cvar that scalars the speed at which the camera rotates while in vehicles. However, I can see it being moderately difficult to do.
