Maybe they tested via the fluids+driver standard and the driver happened to be couple of tonnes with gigantic beer belly.

the topspeed ranged from 220km/h to 260km/h depending on the different final dirve gearings avaible for the customers, there was a 240hp version avaible with a sportcamshaft.
The engine of the 300SL was the first ever petrol car engine quipped with fuel injection.
