The C140 and W140 S-Class is, for many, the last Mercedes that was engineering-led rather than market-led.  That translates into a no-compromise approach to the business of luxury motoring that can be sensed from the chunky thunk of the doors to the eery silence of the engine.

The S-Class’s design was overseen by famed Mercedes designer, Bruno Sacco, and it delivers an understated style familiar to high end buyers of the three pointed star.  Just 26,000 coupes were sold worldwide with the choice of V8 or V12 power.  The 500 used the M119 V8 engine, considered by enthusiasts to be one of the firm’s finest engines and the power behind Mercedes’ FIA GT and Le Mans winning cars.

This one owner, low mileage S500 is an early 1996 car finished in a beautiful combination of dark green metallic and beige leather.  It is in excellent condition, with just a few minor indications that it is 27 years old.  If the full Mercedes and Mercedes specialist service history is a guide, it has clearly been well cared for.  The specification is immense, including double glazing and electric seats all round.  It looks hugely comfortable and a very inviting place to munch up some classic miles.
