Acceleration/deceleration data & tests for '99 500 SL

Does anybody know where to find skid-pad, max. braking and acceleration tests for a '99 MBZ 500SL (or similar model year)? I've looked on-line and can't turn anything up, but suspect it might be somewhere in back issues of Road & Track (either on-line or hardcopy), or some specialty Mercedes website, somewhere?

Any insight would be appreciated!

I found some 0-60 acceleration data there, but still no braking or 60-0 data. Any other possibilities?

60-0 braking? it depends on how close the other car is in front of you [:D]

Just kidding, I have the 1999 brochure but left in the car. The car is in storage now.
