Our '90 300TE shows around 2750rpm at 100km/h (62mph) which by calculation is spot on for the 3.27 rear axle ratio.

For what it's worth, my 5-speed 190E 2.3 shows 2500rpm at 100km/h in 5th gear (0.8:1). My 350SLC runs at about 3000rpm at 100km/h.

Seems funny, the V8 has the shortest gearing, then the six, then the four. But then the four has the 5-speed whereas the V8 has the 3-speed auto.
