1994 Mercedes-Benz S500

Transmission: Automatic

Mileage: 137503km

Colour: White

Launched at the ’91 Geneva Motor Show, the S Class was labelled as the ‘last bastion of excess’ in a time where fuel increases with mounting ‘green peace ways of living’ were pressured on high society flyers. We know now that this extravagance has not only continued but increased in dramatic levels of opulence within in society which means one can be forgiven for driving such vehicle today.

 

The development for the W140 series began as far back as 1981, but with pressures from all angles including competition against BMW, market perception fears and so on, the result was the departure of chief engineer, Wolfgang Peter, when the big Merc finally went on sale in 1991. Laden with all the tech…a list too long to mention (literally), it was truly a masterpiece on wheels.

 

The who’s who of the world had various models of the S Class, from dictators to princess’s, the sheer number of offerings produced from Mercedes must have set the tone for what we expect nowadays in terms of model line-ups.

 

The car in question here belonging to a Dealer Principle of Mercedes East London where it was spec’d with what must be every extra (enquiry for the Mercedes Factory Print we have out on all the specs) presumably to help him sell to his who’s who of clients. Yes, it has the double-glazed windows, but contrary to popular belief these are not actually armoured, it was Mercedes lowering the cabin noise from the road. Unfortunately, he passed away a few years ago where his family parked his affectionally known ‘Sunday church car’ in the garage. Years passed for the estate to be wound up and that’s where we came in to buy a lovely one owner vehicle that is in impeccable condition inside and out. We serviced and replaced everything that was needed so it runs like the day it ran off the factory floor. Judging by the rear seats, it doesn’t look anyone every went with Mr DP on his Sunday drives. The mileage for this era of Merc means it’s just about run in so the new caretaker should enjoy many more miles in absolute comfort. The condition is as such that we expect it to find a fitting home in a Mercedes collection.
