The Mercedes-Benz S-Class represented a classification officially introduced in 1972 with the W116. The S-Class has served as the flagship model for Mercedes for over fifty years in its various incarnations debuting many of the company's latest innovations including drive-train technologies, interior features, and safety systems such as the first seatbelt pre-tensioners. The term stems from the German abbreviation 'S-Klasse', for 'Sonderklasse' , meaning 'special class' and in automotive terms refers to 'a specially outfitted car'. In 1991, the W140 series replaced the W126 in the Mercedes-Benz line-up and saw the S-Class grow in its proportions; more technology and features were added due to product evolution and through competition. Innovations were introduced such as double-pane window glazing, self-closing boot lid/doors, electric windows with a jam-protection feature and a heating system which emitted warm air while residual energy was available after the engine was turned off.
Originally owned by the wife of F.G. Wilson who sold his 'Caterpillar' empire some time ago for £50 million, this extremely well appointed example was one of a pair bought at the same time. With just two owners recorded from new, the £110,000 (new) luxury motorcar benefits from the fitting of a new catalytic converter in 2008 and a light service in 2011 and, with little use since then, it presents in very good order throughout. Also included is a Mercedes Benz agents full service history from 1/12/1995 to 13/2/2013 as well as the air conditioning refill initilazed in February of this year.Supplied with a new 12 month MoT test certificate and tax, spare keys and owner's manuals, this Mercedes-Benz offers extraordinary value for money.
