85 MPH at 3500 rpm?

I tried looking for this fact using search but found no answers. If someone has a W124 260E or 300E (mine is a 1987) could you tell me whether 85Mph is at 3500rpm? I have a feeling that I am moving a lot slower than 85 but I might be wrong. If anyone knows what the stated factory figure for cruising in drive for each 1000rpm could you please post it? That would be an easy way of calculating the correct speed.

Thanks, Igor.
