DIESEL Mercedes kicks the a** of competition

The new Mercedes-Benz V6 CDI diesel engine has marked the start of its career with a string of world records. Fitted in three standard-production E320 CDI models, the cars covered 100,000 km, 50,000 miles (80,467 km) and 100,000 miles (160,934 km) in world-record time, and without any technical problems, at a high-speed circuit in Laredo, Texas. Despite the extreme stresses, the maintenance-free diesel particulate filters held up over the entire distances without any deterioration in performance. The 100,000 mile run was made at an average of 224.823 km/h.

Other sources report
"After completing the high speed records in Laredo, the three unmodified E320 CDIs were driven from Laredo to Tallahassee in Florida, each covering the 1039 miles on a single tank of fuel. Sport stewards supervised the test, sealed the 80 liter fuel tanks and verified the average consumption of 59.46 mpg at the end of the trip

RE: DIESEL Mercedes kicks the a** of competition

YAY! I Love when Mercedes sets records...I read of the 190E(my car:) setting a speed record when it came out(maybe for its class). It was like an avg of 144mph for the 50 or 100k miles...crazy they go fo so long w/out busting.

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

that was for the 2.3-16 at Nardo in Italy, back in 1983..... How many other brands can do the same thing? Zero?

Whats even more amazing is, that it is soon to be much better for the enviroment with the new bluetech catalyst system. So, here you have a car that can toast your average car on the road, gets double the milage of some economy cars, has high levels of luxury and build quality, clean running, is currently seeming to be rather relaible...

Well, they are building them like tanks again, but fast clean efficant tanks...

Oh Mercedes-Benz, God Bless You.
