Might have, but probably not. Mercedes says towing short distance under 45 mph
is OK, but that is NOT foolproof.

As stated, you can tow the car slowly in neutral with the engine
stopped for up to 40 miles (or so).
The main reason why this is not PC is that the oil is not pumped
around the transmission or torque converter.
If you towed it with the engine running, the oil is pumped around, so
in theory, you could tow it as far as you like (though I would still
observe the speed regulation. 30mph is very frightening for the person
being towed if you are on a rope. OK with a rigid bar or 'A' frame.
