Hi Hari

You can use "do" to mean "go or travel (at a certain speed)".

There is an expression: i have made it this far
means i have come to a certain level
so, dose made can be used here

No, Linh that is a different expression. 'I made it this far' has to do with distance. 'My car did 260 km/hr' has to do with speed.

"Make" shows sense of achievement, doesn't it?

Not every time, but it does in the expression, "I made it this far".

Hi,

If you say that the car did 40 miles an hour, it means that the car reached the speed of 40 miles an hour. If you say that the car did 35 miles to the gallon, that means that it used a gallon after 35 miles. One of the meanings of 'do' is 'achieve' or 'succeed in doing'.
