RE: How fast have you gone in your benz

140mph in my 500sel 1985 euro - thats the speed it belongs at, it felt like butta. 71fwy in socal

135 is my 2001 S500, i was so PISSED odd, the fuel cut off, what the freak, i thought i was supposed to be at 155. 71 fwy socal

135 in my 1998 S500 , this pissed me off even more, it should have gone to 155 . on the 5 going to SF

i hit 120 in my 94 jetta 2.0 with my massive 115hp, i think my huge touring wing help alot,

RE: How fast have you gone in your benz

165Mph (tacho reading) in my unrestricted CL600 biturbo on the dubai to sharjah highway (UAE). It still had more in it but i dont think anyone can go faster on those roads, too much bloody traffic!!

155Mph (tacho reading) in my 1996 VW Golf VR6 Syncro (supercharged) on the german autobahn against a Porsche 928S4. Scared me half to death and pissed off the porsche guy.

186Mph (tacho reading) in my brothers Tesstarossa Modificata RS in france, didn't even feel it,... CAN ANYONE HEAR ME?? I THINK I'M DEAF!!

What i'm trying to say is that in ANY Merc, speed is not important, its how you get there.

Be safe.

RE: How fast have you gone in your benz

115 racing a newer Trans Am in my 500SEC, they stop pulling away at about 105, and I caught him by the top of third at 110... But then the bridge was over so I slowed down cause cops sit on the other side, waiting to bust people like me.

RE: How fast have you gone in your benz

around 230km/h in my slk230, i think thats hitting the speed limiter, as it still had about 500rpm till red line
had my old C180K up to 220km/h that was pretty much maxed out too
i think i should borrow my dad's S600 and see what that gets up to :)

RE: How fast have you gone in your benz

I heard the Maybach and S600 go 185 without the limiter, the CL65 goes 190. Due to better tire choices, the Brabus SV12 equipped cars get to 330-340 km/h, which is limited, because the tires have so much stress with that weight. Wouldnt it be fun pulling up to the side of an Enzo at night at that speed in a big, honking 3-star? Oh, does Brabus actually also build an SV12 Maybach, or are they too holy for that?

RE: How fast have you gone in your benz

Well, I've done about 120mph in my 190e 2.6. I raced an IS300 and just barely beat it. I also raced a honda civic......he lost. Now, I havn't gone over 85mph in my c280. As fun as it is to go that fast, it just doesn't seem like it's worth the risk anymore.
