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-tensioner.  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.
 
This very nice Mercedes-Benz S280 represents a car that has been looked after all its life with a full service history to 2010 and has had very little use since then. The paintwork is finished in dark blue with light grey leather interior, and it is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in February 2014, the service book and a number of old service invoices and MoT test certificates. This Mercedes-Benz offers extraordinary value for money considering the S280 cost around £100,000 when new. Price Guide £1,000 - £2,000
