RE: How fast have you gone in your benz
120 mph (193 km/h) - according to the speedometer - about 3 years ago in my stock standard, well-loved 1971 W108 280SE, which had then just under a half million miles (804,000 km) on the clock. The old dear still likes a good run now and then to blow out the cobwebs.
Have achieved only 115 mph (185 km/h) - according to the speedometer - in my 1980 W116 280SE.
The W108 Speedo may have been a tad optimistic?
The trouble in Oz (Australia) is finding a half-decent piece of goat track to open up on.
