These results come from full realistic settings. A lot of factors are at work here, sea level speed is different from altitude speed. If you at a higher alt. the red speed bar is going to be different from the cockpit instrument. All speeds are level flights and alt. flights,you have to look at what alt. the top speed was set, if superchargers were used(probably)and the RPM setting of the motor. Easy settings won't get these results most of the time because you are limited on what you can do to the engine.

You are seeing indicated airspeed. It is different from true airspeed. Go to cockpit off and you will get true airspeed. Check speed then.
