Dejavu, it was my first love when I was a kid. We did not have these in my town, they were only available in city at that time.

I know this is a really old post but can't help but wonder what year this review came around?

If you note the conclusion ("Only for Messrs Ambani, Ruia, Singhania and of course Tata"), it really bears a testament to how far our economy has come along!
I guess the copywriter could have never possibly have imagined that not even tier II or III tycoons but regular white collared folks would possibly be buying the current equivalent(s) in just a decade or so

I have checked it in my folder Abhi. This is from Auto India, July 1995 issue. This W 124 has been among the best recent model from Mercedes Benz, before the electronic era eclipsed the good old Mercs. Some of the later ones have failed miserably to deliver upto the customer's expectations.

The "tycoon" facts pointed out by you are quite amusing to read as of now. But also amusing is the fact that the W 124's are available for Rs 1 - Rs 3 L plentifully in the second hand car market.
