Yes, I must admit that it made the trip pretty comfortable, considering it is a 17 year old car. Stopped once each way for 15 minutes to top up the fuel.

That 6.9 that sold at shannons for 66k a while back is for sale again, on carsales for 32k. That price seems far more in line with that they actually sell for. It looks like a nice car.

Given that owner would have spent money on the car, they have sure taken a bath on it.

It's quite remarkable that this 6.9 has come up for sale again. Little is known of its owner to me except perhaps that he is a restauranteur somewhere in Sydney and drove the car like a man possessed ! So the story goes. Someone on TLK may perhaps wish to elaborate further.

I've had no involvement with the car other than supply a rebuilt water pump. They are not a cheap item. I also know that the owner spent a fortune on those beautiful 17" (?) rims with the appropriate tyres. I know that the car had been resprayed and that the interior was going to be one of the next few items that the owner wanted to spend money on. Obviously, the loss of depreciated money cannot be of any concern to the owner - in my opinion the car owed him close enough to ninety grand, give or take a few cents here and there.

It was hard to look for justification when considering the auction price and the condition of the car at the time. Who knows - I am led to believe that it was the colour that clinched the huge sale price - it was said that he had another , possibly 116, of the same colour and was looking for a sister car.

It is my opinion that the car has been well and expertly maintained, and any purchaser would acquire a car that could well appreciate in value from the estimated price range. Regards Styria

Great colour and great condition car.
I think he is in 560 territory with the price though.

Built a few months before mine, and an MB-TEX interior and manual seats like mine. Difference is that this car has a sunroof.

How about this 280SE ? Unfortunately, not that many pictures, but from what I can see, this is a beautiful car. Seems a shame that in many instances W116s are held in such low esteem. Regards Styria

I'll try again. Don't know how to transmit Facebook pics. Regards Styria

Looks like it's the same unsatisfactory situation.

Nice 300, but yes, very pricy.

Styria, I don’t use Facebook.
Any chance of some images of the 280?

S-Class V12 2005

A hell of a lot of car for relatively little or.....no money ? That's what it seems when one considers the cost of the car when new and what they are looking for today. To put this into some perspective, and I am talking about the catastrophic resale value of some luxury cars - I looked at a Suzuki 2007 Burgmann Maxi Scooter that was advertised for $6500 from memory. A scooter of all things !

Compare the two items - makes one scratching the proverbials. Regards Styria
