The rev's sound normal for a Mercedes. I have a 88 260 and had trouble getting used to the high revs on the highway too. No other makes I've owned were like that. I did eventually get used to it and apparently the engines are built to take it. Another oddity is that some cars, like mine have a second gear start making the transmission essentially a three speed instead of a four.
