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 Future Truck 2025 (Autonomous Driving Demo)
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 constitutes a revolution in
efficiency, safety and networking, a revolution for road traffic and its
infrastructure, for professional driving and for the road transport sector.
This is not a new truck, but rather the key element in the interconnected
transport system of the future. It is being developed as part of the
"Shaping Future Transportation" initiative by Daimler Trucks to conserve
resources and reduce emissions of all kinds. Other aims are to ensure the
highest possible level of traffic safety and to Boost networking with intelligent data
management considerably for tailor-made vehicle and service solutions.
The prototype demonstrated the exciting capabilities of the
Future Truck 2025 back in the summer at speeds of up to 80 km/h in
realistic traffic situations on a section of the A14 motorway in Magdeburg,
Germany. Now the thrilling exterior and interior of that same vehicle are
One of the most interesting questions on the subject of autonomous driving
is the time horizon envisaged for its realisation. In purely technical
terms, turning it into reality on the roads is already feasible within
around five years. In terms of passenger car development cycles, a possible
start is envisaged in 2020. Owing to the more complex factors for heavy
commercial vehicles, the time horizon for such vehicles will, however, be
rather longer – realistically implementation is possible within ten
years, also in view of the legal considerations that still remain to be
The introduction of autonomous driving will not happen digitally from one
day to the next, as development is progressing in a gradual manner:
evolutionary stages are necessary to revolutionise goods haulage on the
roads. In the coming years, new and improved assistance systems will
continue to pave the clearly set-out way to autonomous driving.

The Mercedes-Benz W126 is a series of flagship vehicles manufactured by
German automotive marque Mercedes-Benz. Premiering in September 1979 as the
successor to the earlier W116 line, the W126 was the second generation of
the Mercedes-Benz flagship to officially bear the S-Class name referring to
Sonderklasse or "special class." The W126 was initially offered in
straight-6, V8, and turbo diesel sedan
models. In September 1981, 2-door coupé versions of the W126 were
introduced. Compared to its predecessor, the W126 was more aerodynamic,
fuel efficient, capacious, and powerfully engined. The W126 S-Class debuted
a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other
vehicles in the company's lineup. The W126 line also introduced many
Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag supplemental
restraint systems, seatbelt pretensioners, and traction control.
The W126 had a twelve-year production run between 1979 and 1991, the
longest of any S-Class generation since the flagship models were first
built in the mid-1950s
Following the debut of the 1970s generation W116 (which also included the
flagship Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9), Mercedes-Benz began plans for the
next-generation S-Class model in October 1973. Codenamed "project W126,"
the project had specific goals: an improved ride, better handling, and
improved fuel efficiency. These improvements were aimed at helping
retain the S-Class' market leadership as the world's best-selling prestige
luxury sedan. Following the 1970s oil crisis, Mercedes-Benz had made
fuel efficiency an especially pertinent goal (named "Energy Program"),
even in the large V8 engined versions of the S-Class.
In terms of the body design, the objective of the W126 design team, led by
Mercedes-Benz's Bruno Sacco, was to produce a car that was sleeker and more
aerodynamic than the previous model. The application of lighter materials
and alloys combined with thorough wind tunnel testing to reduce overall
drag meant the car consumed about 10% less fuel than its predecessor.
The maximum speed was also increased (250 km/h in the most powerful
After six years of development, the W126 was formally introduced at the
Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (International Motor Show, or IAA) in
Frankfurt on September 1979. The initial lineup featured seven models in
standard (SE, SD) and long (SEL, SDL) wheelbase sedan body styles: the 280
SE/SEL, 380 SE/SEL, 500 SE/SEL and 300 SD. Technically, the long-wheelbase
(SEL) variants were codenamed V126, but this was not popularly known. In
1981, the coupé version (SEC) of the W126 S-Class premiered at the IAA
with the 500 SEC model. In 1981, Wheels Magazine selected the W126 model
380 SE as its Car of the Year.
Four years after the introduction of the fuel-efficiency "Energy Program,"
the model range had been reworked completely. In September 1985, again at
the IAA in Frankfurt, the reworked model range was reintroduced. Apart from
visual changes to the bumpers, side covers and alloys, the changes made to
the available collection of engine variants was most visible. Two newly
constructed 6-cylinder engines and new 4.2 and 5.6 litre V8's were added,
and other engines were further upgraded.
The W126 generation was replaced by the W140 in 1991, although a satellite
factory in South Africa is known to have continued production until 1994.
The different body styles of the W126 S-Class achieved a combined sales
total of 892,123 units (818,063 sedans and 74,060 coupés), making the W126
the most popular S-Class ever produced

2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
