Ferdinand KO-ed by a ricochet through the open drivers hatch, while trying to recover another bogged down Ferdinand. Open hatches were mandatory in cross-country conditions, due to severe overheating of the engines: at least four Ferdinande were marked as a total lost in 1943 due to engine fires.

Ah, German engineering at it's finest.

I suppose. Dr. Ferdinand Porsche was so impressed by the first captured T-34 and KV-1, that he told Waffenamt 6 just to copy them. Ironically, overheating was also a problem with Soviet tanks, so much that the tank crews were ordered to drive max. 22-25 km/h in hot and dusty weather. V-2 diesel engines also took a lot of maintenance (every 50 km), nominal warranty being around 200 km back in 1942-43.
"T-34 Mythical Weapon" by Robert Michulec and "The Tanks of Operation Barbarossa: Soviet Versus German Armour on the Eastern Front" by Boris Kavalerchik are pretty good books on the topic.

No idea regarding top speed, but definitely more nimble. The conversions were rebuilt to the last factory standard with new suspension and engine grills but no extra armor plates to keep the weight down. The turret ring was also kept to ease the ammunition type selection.
Trivia-bit; initially, Germans didn't bother with factory refurbishments (not even basic automotive parts), when they converted battle worn tanks for example into Sturminfanteriegeschütz 33. Naturally, this just led to early mechanical breakdowns.
