IIRC it's between 2-4 hours depending on how many speeding tickets your budget can handle.

It's 468km via the E4 and 479km via E20. depending on your vehicle and keeping to speed limits it would take between 5-6 hours. Via Ducati earrrly morning 2hrs 40min,well it was an emergency.

It took me about 4½ going Stockholm to Göteborg. Went down to Jönköping and then Borås then Göteborg as apposed to what the signs in Stockholm tell you.
Took an extra hour with a hangover on the way back.

No, speeding ticket means 1500 to 4000 SEK penalty plus losing your license if your speed is more than 50 km/h on a 30 km/h road or more than 30 km/h over the speed limit.

Oh, and for speeds of more than 40 km/h over the speed limit the case will be handed over to the district attourney = fine + mark in the criminal record...
