It is the King on the road..If it were a S65 AMG, it would push of even the sports cars by the help ofit biturbo V12 delivering 612hp & 1000Nm of Torque..S600 is no bad too..V12 biturbo, 517hp & 900Nm...

I was just able to drive it in the test track & yard around the plant as it was a not a demo car..but I was able to make a v.satisfactory drive..The co's demo car S350 was taken for the test drive by an auto magazine..But for me it was a compliment to get the S500..

Guys..I'm very glad..I drove a S-class for the first time in my life..Y'day my friend and me went to look a used S-class for his uncle who is at abroad. It was a 1992 S320..pretty well maintained..Silver extrior & gray interior..They demand 12L..he took the car for a test drive, but very short..we were really worried as it was peak ttraffic time..Then I changed into the driver seat and drived almost 1km..Its a super car..If 92 is so powerful & smooth, then what will be the the latest one..I loved it..

Can anyone guide me if the price for this high or low..

Is this the one in Hudson circle? That car has been there for months. Before you go for the kill. Please get Sundram to do a through check

TO benchmark, there is a 1990 version on ebay going for 9 lakhs, still no takers.

Ajmat,

The 1992 would be a W140, while the 1990 would be a W126?

The one at the pump near Hudson circlewas once soldto Cochin..the buyer a retd senior police officer immediately exchanged with a SUV..don't know whats reason..since then its there..still the price tag is high..

The one in ebay look to be good..its W140 1992 model..try it,but negotiate..

Please try at Mumbai and Delhi..it'll much cheaper..and if lucky some embassy used cars may be there..

Yesterday, CNBC mentioned that DaimlerChrysler was outsourcing some of the the "bus for india" related development activities to its indian tech center! It was mentioned in the scrolling ticker that they show!

I heard from a source that DCIL may develop a part of the chassis for the bus in India. May be it reduces the costs significantly
