Road conduct and rules may differ, but there is one trait Malaysian road users share with the rest of the world, and that is our morbid curiosity with road accidents. Just like the rest of the world, we rubberneck at accident scenes and upload dash cam footage to the internet.

Hot on the heels of the introduction of the 2021 Volvo XC40 T5 Recharge PHEV on our shores, one cant help but notice that the top speed is now capped at 180 km/h. We did a little more digging and found that this also applied to the regular XC40 T5 R-Design, all variants of the XC60 and S60 sedan. Curiously, the S90 variants still have top speeds exceeding 180 km/h, for now.Also read: Volvo’s 180 km/h limit is so stupid, it’s actually brilliant, but remember Turbo Rolf?This, of course

Now, especially with turbocharging, it has become a lot more common and some even go far beyond it.So, here are 5 cars that pretty much says, “size doesn’t matter.”Ford GT – 191 PS-per-litreRecently updated
