1 Owner car guy AKA Nathan Wratislaw here and this W140 is one of My favorites it is a 1995 Mercedes Benz S500 Coupe or CL500. Its a Great car and has only had 2 owners with only 80,000 original miles You will absolutly LOVE this car if a S500C is what you are looking for. I sell A LOT of 600 500 420 and 320 cars and the W140 is pretty much the top of the line..;-P 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).

Just arrived is this immaculate example of the ultimate Mercedes-Benz W126 sedan, a 1987 560SEL finished in stunning Anthracite Metallic with Palomino leather. This car was traded to us by the original owner, who has driven and conscientiously maintained it since originally leasing it in 1987. This car is equipped with power and heated seats (front and back!), full leather, power sunroof, driver airbag, ABS brakes, leather wheel and shifter, factory "aero" alloy wheels, and much more. This is one of the finest examples I've seen in years, and the only one owner car I can remember in ages. This big Mercedes has been freshly serviced by our workshop, with everything found to be in good working order - the engine runs smooth, the transmission shifts as it should, the brakes are in great shape, and the AC is cold. These cars were the ultimate sedans in the 1980s, and are increasingly collectible today. What I love most about them is that they perfectly balance old and new - they are vintage enough to be made to classic Mercedes standards, with incredible build quality and bank-vault construction, but also modern enough to have airbags and antilock brakes, and be comfortable drivers at highway speeds. Don't miss this one! Please call us at (239) 273-1150 or (239) 261-3600 for sales information.
