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.
