I had the same problem in my C280... when I accelerated harder than normal, POP, and then the individual cylinder's fuel injection would be cut as a protective measure. Anyway, I needed new spark plugs, plug wires, and coil ends... problem is GONE now!
I think our ignition systems are a little different... but I would go with benzmac's suggestion and do the cap and rotor... and the plugs.
My car had 112k miles on it... I bet this is your problem.
