Pull up in your fast car.
Does this sentence mean:
You drive your car like crazy.
I don't think this is an order,
I think she is describing him.

I can't see how this could be a description either.
NOT A TEACHER
Pull up is a particular phrase meaning to stop a motor vehicle such as a car or van. I'm not sure where it comes from, but possibly the action of pulling up the handbrake once stopped?
Another sentence for you (a request to the driver of a car by a passenger):
Pull up outside the shop, I need to buy some milk.
You're right. It is part of describing someone's habits.
