1973 Mercedes-Benz accelerated to maximum speedMay 15, 2020
47-year-old car was moving on the autobahn at a speed of more than two hundred kilometers per hour
A video was published on the Web in which an unknown driver was able to disperse a rare 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280E of 1973 on a German autobahn to 220 kilometers per hour, passing around other cars along the way.
The Mercedes-Benz 280E sedan is equipped with a 2.8-liter inline six, which produces 185 horsepower and 239 Nm of torque. The unit is paired with a four-speed automatic. Up to a hundred, a car can accelerate in 10.8 seconds, and its maximum speed on the passport is 200 kilometers per hour.
Of course, at such a speed in 2020 it is difficult to surprise anyone, but it is important to remember that in terms of passive safety, the Mercedes-Benz 280E was equipped with only belts – everything that is installed by default in most cars today was simply not invented.
Mercedes-Benz 280E with such a motor was produced from 1968 to 1973. These cars were very popular in the late 80s – early 90s in the USSR, because in comparison with the domestic auto industry they could offer an unprecedented level of comfort for our market.
