Three Mercedes Benz E 320 outfitted with the all-new V6 CDI diesel engines has marked the start of its career with three world records. The 50,000-mile record was broken with an average speed of 140.092 mph; the 100,000 kilometer record was broken with a 140.370 mph average speed and the 100,000-mile record at 139.699 mph. The vehicles were driven by three teams of six drivers, with each driver taking the wheel for about 2 hours, 10 minutes between refueling stops. In total, the record drivers had to stop 966 times. Servicing, including the replacement of fluids and wear parts, was performed using the customary service interval indicator in the cockpit. The 26-person team of mechanics changed the engine oil, air and diesel filters during each service stop.
