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 registered on 3rd February 1995 this Mercedes-Benz presents very well in Brilliant Silver with contrasting grey and Anthracite interior. The car has formed part of a private collection in recent years, the vendor who is the third owner purchased this S600 coupé in 2011 and has covered approximately 5,000 miles throughout his stewardship. The car has been regularly serviced and MoT’d, the fastidious vendor ensuring this Mercedes-Benz was always available and on the button whenever he chose to use it. These are exceedingly well appointed cars, with electric memory seats, electric sunroof, double glazing, climate control, soft close doors and bootlid, walnut trim and AMG alloy wheels. Manufactured at a time when Mercedes-Benz had a reputation for over engineering their cars, this S600 coupé is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until 4th October 2024 and a history file. This was the flagship of the range when new and had a retail price of over £110,000.
