Oh, I just made a joke!
And even if one gets it serious one has
to take in mind the car has a certified
empty weight of 2155 kg (this includes
the full gas tank and a driver at 75 kg).
If I don't err that has to be multiplied
by 2.6792 for lb so that would be 5.774 lb
which is quite heavy IMHO.
See above, 2155 kg. The S 65 AMG is 2220 kg.
That is my last info (which I can not say
if it is really true)
Cars nowadays are heavy enough, so there's no need to inflate their weights
even further. :-)
The correct conversion factor is 1 lb = 0.45359237 kg (exactly), which yields 1
kg = 2.2046 lb (approx.). Thus, 2155 kg = 4,751 lb.
BTW, if your 138 km/h top speed is indicated on your speedometer, I am plsd
to tell you that on my 1980 W123 200D I achieved a racy 143, the envy of all
my colleagues (who all had the same model) :-)
NB: To reply directly replace "nospam" with "schmetterling"
No, the speedo relatively easy runs out of
figures (160 km/h), but that of course is
nothing I care of;
the 138 km/h is what the factory states, in
reality it is not uncommon such an old MB
diesel goes ca. 5 km/h more than stated by
But I really do NOT care about the top speed
(and it would be ridiculous btw. it is extremely
low, no matter if 138 km/h or 145 km/h);
that car is for city driving only and the top
speed figure is only for joking a bit here in
Ok, that of course is a funny game when
going with such two (or more) identical
cars on the motorway and the one one drives
is a bit faster - but aside that it is
meaningless (see above).
P. S : Tested the car today and it
easily reached the 30 km/h allowed
in my neighbourhood area ;-))
As long as you're memorizing that factor, 1.60934, you may as well memorize one
more digit, and it'll be the exact conversion factor. 1 mile = 1.609344 km. Now
you need to be careful when you convert. 138 km/h = 85.7 mph.
Unless I would be a billionaire I would not
spend that much money on a single car - ok,
I know I am banned from the ng for a week
for saying so plus another week for saying
that if I would spend so much money on a
single car I would choose another car but
Kind regards from Germany
Juergen - thinking his 250 Euro MB is worth
much more, at least 251 Euro... ;-)
