Diesel in motor sport, research and record-breaking cars

1923 – Truck test trip from Stuttgart to Berlin and back
The new truck of Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG) needs ten days for its test drive in September 1923. The commercial vehicle with the new air-injection diesel engine (29 kW/40 hp at 1000 rpm) demonstrates its practical usefulness on a journey from Berlin to Stuttgart and back. The trip between the DMG factories lasts from September 20 to 30, 1923.

1954 – Test drive through the USA
Bill Carroll undertakes a test drive straight across the USA in 1954 in a Mercedes-Benz 190 D. The journey of 8,243 kilometers (5,122 mi.) takes the motor sport journalist from Seattle to New York. The diesel fuel for the ride across the continent costs the tester all of 32 dollars and 27 cents. “For Americans this fuel consumption is utterly sensational,” a German report on the journey says. And the journalist’s conclusion is an unequivocal recommendation to buy: “For anyone who has to drive long distances, the Mercedes-Benz 190 D is the best car.”

Mercedes-Benz bets on the publicity value of the test drive from Pacific to Atlantic. Rightly so: “The huge interest in this achievement of Bill Carroll and the general admiration for it permit us to assume, without exaggeration, that Mercedes-Benz diesel passenger cars will now continue their triumphal march through the United States.” Such is the resume of a report of the Stuttgart company on the American diesel marathon.

From prechamber to BLUETEC

* Diesel technology from Mercedes-Benz: A history of innovations

* From stationary engine to refined automotive drive

* BLUETEC: The diesel technology of the future

106659305a3775__mid.jpg

The diesel engine draws much of its appeal from the history of the Mercedes-Benz brand. It “learned to walk” in the motor vehicle at Benz & Cie. – at the beginning of the twentieth century, design engineer Prosper L’Orange developed a vehicle propulsion unit from Rudolf Diesel’s engine, and in 1923 the world’s first diesel truck originated in Mannheim. Finally, in 1936 Mercedes-Benz built the world’s first diesel passenger car. Since that time there has been an unending succession of innovations to every aspect of the compression-ignition engine in the vehicles of the Stuttgart-based brand.

BLUETEC is the latest innovation for low emission levels and is going to further advance the powerful but low-emission drive towards the future. These high-tech vehicles, which make good ecological sense and are blessed with attractive driving qualities, provide an answer to the questions of the vehicle concepts of tomorrow. In the modular BLUETEC system, Mercedes-Benz has put together a technology package for coming vehicle generations.

New diesel variant with V8 power: The S 420 CDI flagship diesel model makes its debut with 235 kW/320 hp and 730 Nm of torque

New diesel variant with V8 power: The S 420 CDI flagship diesel model makes its debut with 235 kW/320 hp and 730 Nm of torque

Stuttgart, Dec 06, 2006

Mercedes-Benz is extending its S-Class range with another diesel variant, the S 420 CDI. The new eight-cylinder model is powered by a
state-of-the-art V8 CDI engine developing 235 kW/320 hp and 730 newton metres of peak torque. This latest addition to the model line-up means that the luxury saloon range from Mercedes-Benz now encompasses two diesel engines, six petrol models and two body variants, along with the new 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. The new S 420 CDI is available to order now, with deliveries to customers due to start in December 2006. The short-wheelbase model is priced at € 84,448 (net price € 72,800) and the long-wheelbase version at € 92,104 (net price € 79,400).

The new V8 model’s strengths are effortlessly superior performance combined with moderate fuel consumption. The S 420 CDI powers from 0 – 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and goes on to reach 250 km/h (electronically governed), all while returning fuel consumption figures below the magic ten litre threshold, burning just 9.4 to 9.6 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres on the NEDC cycle. With a fuel tank capacity of 90 litres, this equates to ranges approaching the 1000 kilometre mark.

Such impressive figures are down to the highly advanced eight-cylinder turbodiesel engine under the bonnet: from its 3996 cc displacement, the CDI unit with four-valve-per-cylinder technology delivers a maximum output of 235 kW/320 hp at 3600 rpm and a peak torque of 730 newton metres, which is on tap from 2000 rpm. Third-generation common-rail high-pressure injection technology with a maximum injection pressure of 1600 bar and an ignition pressure of 175 bar ensures efficient combustion. Optimised flow dynamics for the best possible gas cycle and twin turbochargers with variable-nozzle turbines promise high power and torque delivery. As many as five injections of diesel fuel per injection cycle, special orifice nozzles, piezoelectric injectors and highly effective exhaust gas recirculation all help to lower emissions significantly. The new V8 powerplant is equipped as standard with a maintenance-free diesel particulate filter to cut untreated emissions even further, and also complies with the EU4 emissions standard. The engine development team was able to reduce noise levels by optimising the chain drive and fitting a rigid crankcase with large engine bearings as well as extra acoustic covers. The square bore-to-stroke ratio combines with a counter-rotating balancer shaft for outstandingly smooth operation.
