ER Classics Desktop 2022

The Mercedes Benz S 500, a member of the thickest Mercedes S-classers ever, could not be transported by car. He was too wide for that. Mercedes had a running time of a quarter of a century in mind for the 140 series. They were only about six years old.

The C140 Mercedes Benz S 500 came in 1992 and disappeared in 1998. Only thick 26000 are made of it. You can read the completely correct number in the March issue of Auto Motor Klassiek. Buy that magazine! Or take out such a surprisingly affordable subscription !.

These Mercedessen represent the absolute top of the automobile industry at the time. The price was correspondingly. It is strange that little from this 'Mercedi' series is offered on the free market. The possible explanation for this is that 'entrepreneurs', the successful 'free boys' and the more ambitious part 'heavy' boys from behind the former Iron Curtain were emotionally affected by this excellent representation of what was possible in a capitalist world.
