New Member Question

I am a new member with a couple of questions for anyone who may be able and willing to help ..I recently purchased a 1989 300E and need to know about the automatic transmisson shifting procedure for this car..The car takes off in second gear unless you floor it on initial take off..I suspect this is probably normal for this car but not sure,, also the car seems wound up at 60 mph as the tach reads around 2600 rpms,, I dont think it has a lock up torque convertor as I have no check engine light and the shifts are on time , just worried about the excessive rpms at 60-70 mph,, thanks for any information on this matter..Mark
