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 one billion dollars 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 500 SEL/600 SEL to S500/S600. Often considered the last 'over-engineered' Mercedes, the W140 and C140 series are still believed by many to be the ultimate car in terms of luxury, comfort and reliability.
Supplied new to the Brunei Royal family this unique and imposing example of the flagship S600 Coupé is to be regarded as perhaps the lowest mileage example in existence. Presented in black with black sumptuous luxury trim this example was bought to the UK in 2021, and since has been serviced and readied for UK driving. The history includes an MoT test certificate and V5C registration document. Features on these cars include climate control, cruise control, electric memory heated seats with air lumbar supports, double glazed windows and electric rear window blind. This would be a fabulous opportunity to own this early 90's flagship model.
