mercedes 560 sel 0-170kph speedo shot

accelerating a mercedes 560 sel at full throttle to 170 kph. it was not yet in 4th gear but i had to throttle back (not at 172 where the clip ends but at the dot of 170)due to traffic. i will do a 0 to top speed(?) soonish. i lost half a second in the video (between 130-140kph) for some unknown reason (maybe because i changed the camera angle and the camera's stabiliser lagged the recording. so add .5 second to the times above 130kph). this is an old car with a 5.6 litre v8 and is very heavy and not known for performance. it is therefore surprising to see how quick it is for all those drawbacks. there is a shot of the outside of the car at the end to show the model type.

SOLD - 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL (W126) for sale by Auto Haus of Naples
Just arrived is this immaculate example of the ultimate Mercedes-Benz W126 sedan, a 1987 560SEL finished in stunning Anthracite Metallic with Palomino leather. This car was traded to us by the original owner, who has driven and conscientiously maintained it since originally leasing it in 1987. This car is equipped with power and heated seats (front and back!), full leather, power sunroof, driver airbag, ABS brakes, leather wheel and shifter, factory "aero" alloy wheels, and much more. This is one of the finest examples I've seen in years, and the only one owner car I can remember in ages. This big Mercedes has been freshly serviced by our workshop, with everything found to be in good working order - the engine runs smooth, the transmission shifts as it should, the brakes are in great shape, and the AC is cold. These cars were the ultimate sedans in the 1980s, and are increasingly collectible today. What I love most about them is that they perfectly balance old and new - they are vintage enough to be made to classic Mercedes standards, with incredible build quality and bank-vault construction, but also modern enough to have airbags and antilock brakes, and be comfortable drivers at highway speeds. Don't miss this one! Please call us at (239) 273-1150 or (239) 261-3600 for sales information.

Mercedes 560 SEC AMG: Something Out of This World
Respected as it is, the AMG brand has come to be regarded as a premium Mercedes-Benz trim. It was not that long ago, however, that an AMG was something more -- a hand-assembled blend of luxury and sport that catered to an owner's every whim. Nothing showcases that more than auto designer Kahren Arakelyan, the owner of this daily-driven 1988 560 SEC AMG. First impressions mean everything -- and it was the impression from seeing a Mercedes in Soviet Armenia that made Kahren a dedicated Benz enthusiast.
