I have a video of Turbodiesel's (now Plantman's) 300sdl running to 60 mph, if you'd like.

Here is an example of the average SDL in good tune:

You will see the acceleration to 55 mph matches up well. As does the 12.5 seconds, if you have a counter.

Wonder what the quarter mile is for these things? I'd love to see an excerpt from a magazine from C+D or R+T around the time these cars debuted. So far, I only have detailed articles for a 560, 560AMG, 500SEC, and 380SEC. All thanks to Peter(Flashback) at

I eat up anything with numbers. Both here, and working on my BS in CS.
1987 300SDL (324000)

1986 Porsche 951 (944 Turbo) (166000)

1978 Porsche 924 (99000)

1996 Nissan Pathfinder R50 (201000)
