This is a 1990s W140 series Mercedes Benz S320. The mommy of all over-engineered Mercedes Benz. The factor it is in below is as a result of the problem it is in. It is immaculate. Seriously spotless but one that is still driven on a regular basis.
The reason that it is in such a condition after a minimum of twenty or two years on the road is the proprietors had and also currently has actually saved no cost in keeping it. It came from a buddy who inherited it from his dad who has actually passed on. He went on keeping it for a few years and also was the man who decided to alter the wheels from the initial 16 inch alloys to 18 inches that when came from a Mercedes W140 CL-series sports car. He had actually then decided to market it over to an additional close friend of mine whom most of you know as the serial cars and truck customer whose cars I feature in here extremely commonly. He is currently a serial Used Mercedes E350 Cars purchaser from the appearances of it.
Yet who would not pass up such a good looking S-class. This vehicle is sensational in and out. Actually stunning. And also considering that it is an S-class, it has all the rewards from dual glazed home windows, superb soundproofing, a trip that you might eliminate for (also on this pre-air suspension S-class), supreme waftability (it simply moves when driving), a smooth straight-six 3.2 litre engine and also a smooth altering 5 speed automated gearbox. The 3.2 litre straight six makes 231PS and 315Nm. It can do 0-100kmh in about 9.5 secs and also cruise ship easily at 160kmh for hrs. Full throttle must be about 231kmh. And also it weighs 1900kg.
It may be a storage tank, however it is still so simple to navigate and drive around town (I bear in mind composing a write-up on my drive experience in a comparable Used Mercedes S320 Cars For Sale five years ago for CarThrottle). Parking is the only issue as it is huge. It does the remainder quite well. Not in the sports car means, however in the full on deluxe vehicle kind of means. Even to now.
The thing concerning the W140 is that it actually is as big as the present W222 S-class. It likewise has that upright grille and also squared off bodywork that in some way does not look dated specifically because it currently has 18 inch wheels like the present S-class. This is a charm. Sufficient claimed, simply take pleasure in the pictures. I will at some point compose a drive record about this beauty among these days.
Damn. This may be a container and also there is nothing flashy concerning it whatsoever. I still get weak knees taking a look at it.
