300E Article

If I remember, they tested a euro spec model that seemed to have much better performance than what we ended up getting stateside. Would be interested in BHP rating and 0-60 times. Seems like this was one of the fastest sedans tested at that time (with euro setup).

If you compare this car to the others out there back in 1986, this was quite a departure, but like with most mercedes, the changes often seem startling at first and quickly become seemingly classic once they grow on you.

If you have a scanner I'm sure some of the 300E enthusiasts on this site would love to see a copy of this article.
