Mercedes Benz S-Class W140 (Mercedes-Benz S-класса W140)
Mercedes-Benz W140 was a series of flagship vehicles manufactured by the German automotive company Mercedes-Benz. The car premiered at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1991, with the first examples rolling off the production line on August 6, 1991. Short (SE) and long (SEL) wheelbase sedans were offered initially, as well as the coupé (SEC) body style from October 1992. Like all Mercedes-Benz lines, the W140 S-Class was rationalized in late 1993 using the new "letter-first" nomenclature. The SE/SEL/SEC cars were renamed the S-Class, with alphanumerical designations inverted. For example, the 500SE became the S500, and the 500SEL became the S500L. In 1997 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 The W140 series S-Class was superseded by the W220 S-Class in 1999 after an eight year production run, the coupé by the C215 CL-Class for model year 2000.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Development on the W140 began in 1981, originally set for an autumn 1989 release. From 1982 to 1986 several designs were reviewed, until December 1986 when the final design was approved. Several prototypes were tested onwards from early 1987. A delay was made to accommodate a V12 engine and resulted in the final prototype being completed in June 1990. Pilot production models were made from July 1990 to January 1991. In 1991, to compete with the Lexus LS 400, a series of additional features were rushed for the launch of the W140. The W140 introduced innovations such as double-pane window glazing, power-assisted closing for doors and boot lid, electric windows which lowered back down upon encountering an obstruction, rear-parking markers which rose from the rear wings (discontinued on later vehicles, and replaced with sonar-assisted parking) and a heating system which, if desired, continued to emit warm air after the engine was turned off. For details like this, the W140 is often known as the last Mercedes to be "overengineered," a Mercedes trait that was costing the company in product delays and overbudgeting. According to Motor Trend, this action reportedly caused project cost overruns and resulted in the departure of Wolfgang Peter, Daimler-Benz's chief engineer. The vehicle is believed to have cost Mercedes-Benz over $1 billion to develop. For the consumer, the W140 cost a considerable 25 percent more than its predecessor, the W126.
The W140 was to feature air-suspension as an option, but it was dropped shortly before launch because Mercedes was still perfecting the technology at the time. Mercedes chose to launch air-suspension in the next generation S-Class in 2000. The W140 instead used a hydropneumatic rear suspension, first introduced on the W126 to be used on the S500 and S600 models. Following the mid-year facelift in 1994, Mercedes-Benz made Electronic Stability Control an optional fixture to both sedan and coupé body styles in the W140 range. Both the sedan and coupé body styles were equipped with Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR) as a standard feature.
Like its predecessor, the car was available in two wheelbase lengths (short W140 and long V140) along with the C140 coupé. In 1992, a new 6 litre 402 horsepower V12 engine joined the lineup for the first time with the 600SEL and 600SEC. A "V12" badge was affixed to the C-pillar.
In 1993, the 402 horsepower V12 engine was slightly detuned to 389 horsepower to comply with tighter emission control regulations in the United States and Europe. The V8 models were tuned down from 322 horsepower to 315 horsepower.
The W140 600SEL was available with wooden rear ash tray covers, wood/leather shift knob, leather dashboard and a suede headliner, unlike the V8 and inline 6-cylinder models. Following the facelift in 1994, the rebadged S600 was updated with a wood/leather steering wheel, a V12 badge on the wood/leather shifter, double needle stitching all over the interior and two tone nappa leather seating -- further distinctions from its lower rung siblings.
Following the new Mercedes-Benz tradition of mid-life facelifts (starting with the W126 in 1986), the W140 received a minor facelift in 1994. The clear turn signal indicator lenses on the front were the most obvious change, as was the grille including a new and distinctive one for S600's. Headlamps were fitted with separate low H7, H1 fog, and high H1 beam reflectors in 1995, pre 1995 used an H4 bulb and H3 for the fog lamp. In April 1995, "Parktronic" replaced the parking guiders on the rear boot lid. In June 1996, the two tone exterior bumpers were painted to match the upper portions of the vehicles and the rear indicator lenses became clear.
Height of the W140 production models varied between years (1992-94 W140 Sedan: 58.7 in; 1992-94 V140 Sedan: 58.9 in; 1995-96 W140 Sedan: 58.4 in; 1997-99 V140 Sedan: 58.3 in; C140 Coupe: 56.7 in; 1997-99 W140 Sedan: 58.5 in).

Mercedes-Benz S Class - The Bruno Sacco Model CL 500 C140
S-Class top of the line Mercedes-Benz,a look at the Bruno Sacco CL 500 C140 model In stuttgart Germany
Bruno Sacco became to 12. November 1933 in Udine, Italy, born. After its training in Tarvisio and Udine visited it the poly-technical university Turin, where it during the study time Ghia first experiences in the area of the body organization gained. Later he took over for the companies Ghia and Pininfarina smaller orders. In the year 1958 Bruno Sacco began its career Daimler Benz. As stylist and a technical designer he worked under the direction of Karl Wilfert, Friedrich violonist and Béla Barényi at different projects also. For example to Mercedes Benz 600 and to Roadster 230 SL. In addition it took over the Design direction of the project for the safety exhibitions at that time as well as for the so-called „rolling research laboratories ", the experimental vehicles C 111- I and C 111-II. In the year 1970 Sacco took over the line of the department of body construction and measure conception at Daimler Benz. In this time the ESF prototypes developed (experimentation safety vehicle) under its co-operation as well as the model row 123. With the title „upper engineer "stepped Bruno Sacco 1975 the follow-up of Friedrich violonist as directors/conductors of the head department Stilistik on and coined/shaped thus from now on the appearance of the Mercedes Benz passenger vehicles. Developed the Diesel record car C 111-III (1978) and the S-class of the series W 126 (1979) with after it designated Bag whether rescuers. In the year 1978 became Sacco director/conductor of the specialist area Stilistik. 1987 the executive committee appointed it as the director of the range Design, and 1993 became it as leaders Design member of the director circle of the enterprise. In this characteristic Bruno Sacco transferred also a mandate function for the organization of the products of the business field of commercial motor vehicles. In March 1999 Bruno Sacco handed over the range line after 41 years in the Mercedes Benz Design at Peter Pfeiffer.
A quarter of a century has passed since the birth of W124-series Mercedes E-class, yet every time we see it on the road it looks incredibly fresh to eyes. For sure, the timeless design by Bruno Sacco plays a major role in its evergreen status, but more important, the W124 was probably the best engineered car ever made. It was developed when Mercedes was still putting engineering -- instead of financial -- targets in first priority. Lengthy development and extensive testing process made it nearly flawless. It was so durable and reliable that most production cars still exist today. Provided proper maintenance, they can easily look like new cars !
S Class mercedes fighting the iced over street.
My 1995 S class doing its best to get into the driveway. Everything was iced over, and not a single snow plow or salt truck was seen all day. A pain in the ass to say the least.
Due to a lot of negative comments i'd like to add. The tires were very worn and this car was not used during harsh conditions during this specific winter.
