On November 16, 1990, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the W140 S-Class via press release, later appearing in several February and March editions of magazines. The W140 made its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1991 with the first examples rolling off the production line in April 1991 and North American examples on August 6, 1991. Short (SE) and long (SEL) wheelbase saloons were offered initially as well as the coupé (SEC) body style from October 1992. In 1996, the coupé models following a mid-life update were separated into the CL-Class. The W140 series S-Class was superseded by the W220 S-Class saloon and C215 CL-Class coupé in 1999 after an eight-year production run.
This exceptional lefthand drive Mercedes-Benz 600SEL has only covered 49,000 miles from new. Finished in black with full black leather interior, it has the following options fitted, triple glazing, climate control, sunroof, front and rear DVD screens and electric reclining rear passenger seats. The SL was imported from Japan earlier this year and a V5C registration document has been applied for and is expected with the car at the sale along with its current MoT test certificate which expires at the end of July 2015. This is an opportunity to purchase a top of the range Mercedes-Benz for less than a new Mercedes A-Class.
