99 Merc S420 (80k Mi) 07 Lexus LS460 (21k Miles)
Anyone know what the official (Mercedes/edmonds/autoweek/ect...) quoted 0-60 time was on S320/420/500/600? No one seems to keep records of this online.
From Mercedes S Class UK specification leaflet November 1997Anyone know what the official (Mercedes/edmonds/autoweek/ect...) quoted 0-60 time was on S320/420/500/600? No one seems to keep records of this online.
No difference,Thanks for the TV reviews. That is just what I was looking for. Ahh, the wonderful recording power of the VHS tape!!
Are there any reviews of the 97-99 S class? Did it test the same as the 95 or was it slightly faster? My car feels like it can rocket a whole lot faster then 8 seconds to 60 MPH, however I've never timed it. The TV review over in the W221 section says that a stock S550 can hit 60 in just 4 seconds. Half the time!
Well it won't. It won't even get close to that, inertia will see to it. Tell you what though, there's a guy here, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6AUnyRBqRc&feature=related), I reckon he knocked 60 out in about 6 dead and 100 in about 13. Add a few percent for the speedo being inaccurate and call it maybe 6.3 and 13.7? Still as fast as hell.The TV review over in the W221 section says that a stock S550 can hit 60 in just 4 seconds. Half the time!
I think the torque is what gets us there so fast. Most cars the torque is less then the HP. I should you tube my dash as that needle moves to 60 REALLY FAST :thumbsup:Thanks for the input. As I sit here typing I am reading the June,1992, Car and Driver. (red honda crx on the cover) It states:
