Thats funny...

Seriously, without launching (I dont want to destroy the tranny) I could do a 0-60 in about 16 seconds. Thats with an engine with about 350K on it. I think a new 300DT could do 0-60 in the 13s. Not bad, considiring a new Jetta TDI does the same..

wow 200D 0-60?

good thing is that it has a manual tranny. It would be a good race between it and my dad's 50hp jetta diesel. the Jetta was about 22 seconds 0-60 alot of delivery trucks could beat that car in a stoplight drag.

Well, you sort of got me on the speedometer. The car's speedometer was calibrated against a master speedometer. I have a record of actual speed vs. speed indicated.
There was no measurable wind at the time of the test.

Thought I'd give the W123 forum a little bit more life, so I revived this thread!

Best times for me 0-60mph is 12 seconds, still w/EGR. Haven't figured out 1/4 mile yet...the 300SD W126 does it around 20 seconds, so I would guess the same.

I'm pretty sure there are unmodified OM617 engines out there that can do 12 seconds! Must be in really good condition!
