Does anyone know what models have limiters and what year they started. More specifically, I am planning on buying a 97 S500. Does this car have a limiter? If so, what is the speed limit?


Yes, 210km/h. AMG cars are 250km/h.

In North America, most customers put crappy replacement tires on their cars, regardless of OE tire selection. MB keeps their "liability" down buy using speed limiters on all their cars, regardless of performance.
