|Odometer reading||52,000 miles|
|Estimate||£8,000 - £10,000|
With each successive generation of Mercedes-Benz cars, the Stuttgart manufacturer maintains its tradition of offering the very finest automobiles across a wide range of classes. Debuted at the Geneva motor show the new W140-series was developed at a cost of over $1 billion and was unquestionably the most advanced motorcar on the planet when it came out. Standard equipment on these supremely well-appointed automobiles included a four-speed automatic transmission, traction control, double-glazed glass, electronic stability control, and pneumatically self-closing doors. The S500 and S600 were electronically limited to a maximum speed of 155mph, surely fast enough for most. In 1993 Mercedes-Benz changed the model designations of the 500SEL/600SEL to S500/S600. Often considered the last 'over-engineered' Mercedes, the W140-series is still believed by many to be the ultimate car in terms of luxury, comfort and reliability.
This S600 is in superb condition and has only covered 48,000 miles during its 21 years on the road. Originally supplied by Mercedes-Benz, Piccadilly, London on 15th June 1993 and with only three former keepers, this V12 S600 has been exceedingly well maintained and drives with no known faults. The silky smooth engine is quiet and very responsive, as well as being deceptively rapid. The interior is very well appointed and the comfortable seating making this car a real delight to drive. Supplied with a V5 registration document together with a current MoT test certificate, together with the original handbooks; true luxury motoring at a very realistic price.
