A questions I can't seem to find an answer to

Dumb question here that's nearly irrelevant. How fast is the diesel R-class? No one seems to have posted a 0-60 time anywhere. The GL diesel is supposed to be somewhere south of 8 seconds, and I assume the R is the same considering it's a very similar weight?

As I said, it's a pretty irrelevant question considering the class of vehicle isn't made to be particularly fast nor should it, I just want to know because I don't know...

I believe the GL is rated at 8.4 sec and the R is 9.4.

Curb weight for comparison: GL= 2455 kg and R= 2380 kg
I was wondering about that, as well as finding out that the GL is heavier; I expected it to be the other way around. I imagine the 0-60 times are due to different gearing.
Probably; I forgot to mention that the numbers I posted are for the R350 Bluetec
