My v40 go all right, but I don´t go more 137 mph on the clock.
It is not little for a car like this?

Volvo claim 136 mph top speed with manual transmission - much higher than the speed limit on most public roads in Europe e.g. 74.56 mph on Spanish motorways.

A better measure of the engine's capabilities is probably 0 - 60 mph time or the standing quarter mile time.

In skilled hands with a dry road 0 - 60 mph should take around 8 seconds, I am not sure what the standing quarter mile time would be for a stock (unmodified) model.

Remember, this model has a low pressure turbo fitted, not a hpt.

Wishing you safe & happy motoring!
