Most MB's. i dont know about newer ones, have, for some reason, a really high temperature thermostat, i think it opens at around 105 C or 110 C. So, hitting the 120 mark is very common, usually, it hits that mark if your sitting for a while in hot weather, and then comes down a tiny bit when moving again! You didn't mention the year, so im assuming because its a 500, its early 80's, very common for these years. There are threads in here about the thermostats, and i believe one thread about someone who replaced the thermostat with a german made thermostat that opens at 80 C or 85 C.

Good Luck!
