Top speed for 1975 230?

Does anyone know where top speeds are published for older Benz models? I'd like to know the original 1975 track test results, but can't find any references online. My speedometer doesn't feel credible, topping out at 60mph, and I'm pretty sure that the old lady is still clearing 100...
Thanks![:)]

Thanks MercMad; some good stuff here, especially the old road test brochures available for free download, for the 1970 straight 4 models, 200 and 220, and the '74 240D. Good run down on stats too; 170kmh is apparently the top speed. Thanks![:)]
