R129 Top speed?

Well at the moment I am a R107 guy and I want something newer with more power. So I was wondering if someone could tell the the top speed of any of the three R129's I am looking at.
300SL
500SL
600SL

All I want to know is the top speed and 0 to 60.

Thanks

I believe that my 01 SL500 electronically cut power at 240 km/h.
I have never been able to get more than that, however, it seem to have more to give if electronic can be by-passed.
Anyway, 240 is more than enough for me.

Regards.

If that helps you decide, I did 130 MPH with the top down, side windows and windstop up with no problems and I have a long ponytail and while doing almost 90 MPH I had a long hands free phone call with no problems at all.

Get a R129 and the only thing you will regret will be selling it and I know it from experience.

Cheers.

I drive like I stole . . . YOURS

Mick because I want to be able to enjoy talking to you for a long time.
High speed and phones do not mix.
I am old school, I'll accept the ponytail.
