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 http://www.500sec.com.

I eat up anything with numbers. Both here, and working on my BS in CS.
