Unhappy Abrupt acceleration in W124

Has anyone experience of this particular problem. I have a 1994 W124 E280. When waiting to set off from stationary, with the transmission in drive, it is very difficult to gently accelerate away. The set off is quite abrupt. This problem is noticeable more when leaving from a friends house where he has a sloping gravel drive. When reversing up the drive it is almost impossible not to send gravel spraying everywhere, because the wheels spin too quickly, again because I cannot accelerate gently enough. The transmission is very smooth when driving normally, with no problems whatsoever. It is just the setting off from stationary that causes this problem.
