De-restricted top speed and 0-60

Can anyone give me the definitive answer for top speed de-restricted and 0-60mph time for a "standard" SLK 55AMG? The offical performance figures only give limited 155mph and 4.9 to 60.

4.5 to 60 is the maximum time it should take, expect it to be quicker than that figure however.

And its top of the 180's Vmax.

At least one member has achieved 4.3 seconds. He documented it here:

Not sure about unrestricted top speed. Even with the 030 package I think it is restricted to 176 MPH or so. So my guess is that totally unrestricted would be above that.

Hmmm, that is interesting. I will get a track day at Texas Motor Speedway in August. I am wondering what I can top out at. RSB168 and myself have hit just over 140 at Texas World Speedway, and there are tricks to get the speed up higher. I have a non 030 also, so it should be interesing.

Hey John, are you going to the TWS event in June. They're going to run clockwise. The track is faster in that direction. Will be looking for you.
