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.

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.
