SLKs only! 0-60 thread! Post your real-world 0-60 times!

Because 60mph (100 k/h) is well within the legal limits of most roads, I figured this would be OK. There are a lot of "claims" out there, so lets be the forum who has the most of them!
Post your car and your 0-60 time. as well as any mods or any proof such as images or videos. it would also be good to know elevation and temperature for those of us who like the details.


I'll start: 1999 SLK230 ~1500 ft elevation. 60* evening - I did 7.5 seconds.

then I did my M113 swap. now it gets there between 6.1 and 6.4. this was around 78* and same elevation

Your turn!!

Not a formal time (must do that properly with the OBD dongle) but Silkie did the 0-60 in 'under seven seconds' recently in a straight line along a slight incline and on dry roads. When new, the SLK320 was supposed to do this in 6.5, so, I don't consider the time too bad considering she's 16 years old and has 104k miles under her belt.

Now : Silkie - 2002 Lazulithe Blue Mercedes Benz SLK320

: 2011 Sophisto Grey BMW F10 528i SE

Not tested mine, but I believe a calendar would be the best bet rather than a stopwatch. 😳

Still love my SLK200 though!

Using the one one thousand two one thousand, etc., etc. method my 05 55 AMG is somewhere between 4 one thousand and 5 one thousand, or damn fast. If Jbanks isn't in the 3s he wasted a lot of money

I have a video of mine I took with my phone a while back but cannot edit out the first few seconds of me babbling away and the last 15 seconds of me hitting the 140 mark ...on the track of course.
Can anyone oblige and explain to me the best way to post it to this thread for comparison and comment?
Many thanks
Steve

Sorry Steve. Trying to be too helpful.

If you're going to the Breakfast meet today can you bring the video in a USB stick? I'll see what I can do with a laptop.
