Mercedes 190 V12 100-200 kph Timing on Autobahn !!

This is what a lot of people also want to know. How fast is this car.   for me personally it is less important because for me this is a
statement build. I want to show what i could do in my garage. And this engine swap was always seen as impossible and could not be succesfull.
I think i have proven that point because it is really good

So i search for a nice piece of open road on the autobahn.  there was a lot of side wind what was affecting the stability of the car but not to mcuh to worry about.  I think i will make a custom splitter on the front of the car to make it more stable above 200kph
I did about 3-4 runs .  i filmed 2 of them.

The first on was in S mode and in manual.  Shifting back from 5 to 2 gear.  And then just floor it.  And this car is really fast on response. it is like a rocket how fast it will resond in 2 and 3 gear .

80-120 kph  2.00 sec  and 30mtr distance o yeah!!!
100-150 kph 4.00 sec and 153mtr distance
100-200 kph 11.00 sec and 513mtr distance

The  second run was in S mode and in automatic mode.  shifting back from 5 to 4 to 3 gear. And then Floor it. You could see how long the gearing is and starting in 3 gear loosing a little bit on th 80 to 120 time but still very nice pul from about 100kph in 3e gear

80-120 kph 2.99 sec and 67mtr distance
100-150kph 4.01 sec and 146mtr distance
100-200kph 11.00 sec and 496mtr distance

I think these results are very nice  this car is 1440kg ready to drive without a passenger with 424HP and 585NM  timing 100-200KPH in 11 sec is a good result and suited  to this combination if you look to other car.  i think with less with and maybe a little earlier shifting before redline i could get it to 10,5 sec maybe 10 sec   if this car had shorter gears it would be seconds faster.  if this car get a remap on higer octane fuel it would raise the torque about 50 nm and will get easy to 10sec i think.  But in this setting the car is best to drive. I think  so im happy with the results
