240D top speed

The torque of the 240D is about 103 lb.ft at 2400 rpm.

With my 84 240D 72hp 5speed, I can maintain quit easily (when the road is flat of course) 90/92 mph on the clock and when the road go down, it's possible to reach 100mph and more.
According my MB owner's book, the theoric top speed is 87mph in 5th (and 89mph in 4th !).
Probably the speedometer is a little bit optimist !

The picture attached show a 240D 4speed at about 170 kmh (106mph).
