World 100,000 mile 140 mph for 30 days averaging 40 mpg

World mile record: 140 mph for 30 days 40 mpg

May 3, 2005 With so much for global car sales, it helps to a car into the market with a impetus and there’s no greater to the speed or reliability of a car, or to the desirability of a car than a world Accordingly, Mercedes Benz’ such a feat to launch its new V6 CDI engine. It had three cars at random off the production line, taken to a track in Texas and run out for 100,000 miles. Each E 320 CDI car ran for 30 days straight while 224 kmh (140mph) and an almost unbelievable 40 per gallon while satisfying all CARB emission standards. averaging 140 mph, each was serviced 10 times in the course of the run. The 26-strong team of changed the engine oil, air and filters during each stop. That should the showroom punters take Read on for the full story.

The new V6 CDI diesel engine, set to replace the five and six-cylinder in-line in the next few months, has marked the of its career with a string of records. Fitted to three E 320 CDI models, the new powerplant set new world for 100,000 kilometres, 50,000 and 100,000 miles respectively on the circuit in Texas.

Despite the extreme stresses, the diesel particulate filter up magnificently over the entire distance without any deterioration in – further testimony to the reliability and of this exhaust technology. set three cars at once on for a record at the high-speed circuit in Texas; all three successfully the record distance, thereby proof of the reliability of the E-Class times over.

To do so, each of the candidates did no fewer than laps. Adding up the distances by all three cars gives an total of 300,000 miles kilometres) — one-and-a-quarter the distance from the Earth to the In addition to the vast distance and variations in climatic conditions, the suspension, chassis and electronics subjected to particularly severe and punishment from the vibrations by the uneven road surface.

The 30 of torture also proved the of the exhaust system with its diesel particulate filter. this event was a world in that it marked the first that this filter had been subjected to such and continuous punishment. As established by test series (conducted in the lab and on the road), success of Mercedes-Benz in endurance run confirms that diesel particulate filters can be relied on to function perfectly high mileages in everyday

Resounding success after miles in 30 days

The vehicles driven by three teams of six also including the former DTM and current FIA Formula 1 Safety car Bernd Mayländer, with driver taking the wheel for 2 hours, 10 minutes between stops.

In total, the record drivers had to 966 times in the temporary pits set up the track; refuelling and the obligatory check of the vehicle took 2 minutes on average. Servicing, the replacement of operating fluids and parts, was performed using the service interval indicator in the

Project manager Jochen “Our vehicles ran like Our mechanics likewise completed the servicing and maintenance in a record-breaking contributing in no small part to magnificent achievement.” In addition to the records over 100,000 plus 50,000 and 100,000 the three international driver set other records:

The following Start International FIA records set in vehicle category B — vehicles, Group III — Class 11 — swept 2,500 – 3,000 cc:

The following Distance Start FIA records were set as the absolute figure among all vehicle and classes:

50,000 miles kilometres) Standing start km/h — 140.092 mph kilometres Standing start km/h — 140.370 mph miles (160,934 kilometres) start 224.823 km/h – mph

The world-record run took place the supervision of the FIA, which strict rules for tests of kind. The Paris-based FIA (Fédération de l’Automobile) is the governing body for attempts in the automotive sector

The vehicles were selected at sealed and shipped to the USA by the FIA officials at Sindelfingen plant. Before, and after the record run, the vehicles were monitored by the FIA until the world record was officially.

In accordance with the recognised regulations, the extent of any which may be performed is limited and the of entire assemblies such as the transmission or exhaust system is not The three Mercedes E 320 CDI models had no in meeting these requirements as no faults occurred during the run.

Part and parcel of the model in Europe

Advanced diesel which are equipped with particulate filters and comply the EU4 exhaust emissions standard excellent sense, both and ecologically, and are ideally suited to all categories, as a glance at the current range of Mercedes-Benz diesel confirms. In terms of both and comfort, diesel engines are established as the equals of petrol

The range begins with the 60 hp A 160 CDI and extends right up to the new E 420 CDI with its of 231 kW/314 hp. No less than 20 on sale in Germany, Austria, the and Switzerland already feature a particulate filter as standard, summer 2005 will see 40 models equipped with technology. This means worldwide, the Stuttgart-based company be offering more vehicles diesel particulate filters any other manufacturer. Mercedes- introduced the particulate filter in 2003 and to date has delivered 140,000 vehicles with exhaust technology.

Promising in the USA

As well as offering superb and excellent quality, the Mercedes-Benz models are also outstandingly The fuel consumption figure of 40 mpg by the E 320 CDI is unrivalled by any vehicle in its competitive

Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz engineers successfully used effective control systems to satisfy the exhaust emission standards set by the Through the use of the latest technology it in future be possible to comply the Californian CARB (California Air Board) legislation — the in the world — which applies in five states.

The potential savings which be achieved through increased of diesel engines in the USA are enormous.

An in the proportion of dieselpowered cars and commercial vehicles from the one percent to around thirty would save the USA approximately 1.4 barrels of crude oil per day — to the entire amount of oil imported by the USA Saudi Arabia.

If we were to a 50 percent market share for as in western Europe, the potential saved in a year would be 133 litres!

Many American are already convinced of the benefits of advanced diesel powerplants, as by the response to the launch of the Mercedes-Benz E 320

The company’s sales volume of vehicles planned for 2004 out in just five months. The engine will also fresh impetus following the announcements by the Bush Administration. In of the recent dramatic rises in prices, US President George W. last week announced a to develop more fuel-efficient, vehicles. Together with vehicles, clean diesel like the Mercedes-Benz E 320 CDI are to be promoted by of tax incentives to the tune of US$ 2.5 billion the next few years.

Mercedes diesel technology

The story of Mercedes diesel cars began 70 years ago is regarded as the pioneer of diesel As early as 1935, the company presented the world’s first diesel passenger car in the form of the

Other milestones on the way to today’s agile diesel powerplants the introduction of turbo technology in the the first particulate filter in 1985 and the premiere of the common-rail in 1997.

The consistent effort Mercedes-Benz has put into the evolution of technology over the last 70 has helped it attain the high which it enjoys around the today. Future developments by the company will make the even more attractive, and environmentally compatible. This is acknowledged by customers: Mercedes-Benz has delivered more than million diesel-engined passenger the market share of diesel is set to rise further in future the growth seen over the few decades.
