Do ALL 560SEL's have limited slip?

The reason I ask is that my '87 560SEL does not behave as if it has limited slip...what do I mean by this? Well at this time of year in New Jersey, wet leaves are a constant hazard on the road. A few times I've started off from an intersection where one tire was on leaves and one on bare pavement. If I hit the gas too hard, the one on leaves (usually the right) spins like crazy and I pull forward much more slowly than normal.

Could I be without limited slip or could the differential be malfunctioning in some way? How can I tell?
