Default Mercedes W140 - 600SEL

Much maligned of course, badly undersold, maybe a future Classic for the very well heeled ? It'd be some car to drive. Regards Styria

One needs deep pockets for this one...

Otherwise, it is one of the most over-engineered vehicles from M-B and a dream ride.

Jeremy Clarkson as a rather formal kid? Ha ha ha ha!
There is also a video of Jeremy Clarkson on YouTube as a kid, on board the Jahre Viking (alias Nock Nevis).

watching the video , it is quite impressive , had a friend who owned one , and was amaizing , but all the options is still 7 series of BMW is there even the engine v12 is also available in the 750 BMW back then , but the MERCEDES w140 is a great ride i admit.

REGARDS

This is an excellent run-down on the W140. In years to come, this reference may well be very handy. Thanks initially to Tim's efforts, I looked a little further for additional information on the website he featured, and that's what I have come up with. Regards Styria
