head gasket S40-V40 2006

I looked at a 2006 S40 w/113K yesterday and after starting the engine I went to open the overly tight coolant reservoir.
It hissed and spewed immediately upon loosening. The surge of pressure into the bottle was as strong as I've ever seen.
The smell was of raw exhaust. It brought teas to my eyes.

Clearly the head gasket was shot.

Either a design flaw or overheating caused this condition. Please take note of this inspection step.
