African. Unladen.

If the top speed of my car is only 139, then either:

1) The transmission graph in the owner's manual is wrong (unlikely) or;
2) The engine does not make enough power to achieve 6500 rpm in fifth gear (possible)

Honestly, I think the engine may have enough power. Certainly, in fourth gear, the car accelerates from 100 mph fairly easily.
