How fast have you driven your SLK?................

I'm not a big fan of driving fast on public roads, BUT........ sometimes on an open road, with few on-off ramps we have the need for speed.............
With my old 230K I managed 142 mph when the governor kicked in.
On the track at Virginia International Raceway I got the '32 up to 150 mph indicated.
Both cars were rock solid, but frankly I was shaking, how about you?

110mph, on the back roads through Mississippi. Had the top down, and if I had not looked at the speedometer would have sworn I was only doing 75-80.

A few weeks after I got my 230 I found myself on a deserted motorway and hit an indicated 148 with the roof and windows down... nearly blew my ears off! Had to be done, just the once lol.

140mph, with my 64 year old mother in the car. First time she ever rode in it. I nailed it from zero on a country backroad in TX. She didn't say anything until I let off the gas, and she just said "That was like a roller-coaster".

Wow, just checking back here to see how busy it was, and it seems to be doing rather well. Back on topic....

150 with the top down. It sure does get windy. I want to see if I have the limiter or not. That would confirm if my ECU still has the RennTech programming as well.

Your times are excellent.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your time to speed is better then the Mercedes numbers, but that's to be expected, they are VERY conservative...
