If theres nothing seriously wrong with this machine/its paperwork, its WORTH EVERY PENNY!! 24000 kms is peanuts for a W140..in fact its still a virgin. The W140 was the last "extremist" car that Mercedes ever built. Early examples were plagued by electrical issues but nothing that wouldnt have been sorted out already. The best W140s were after 1995.

This baby is supreme...Where is it on sale? Name and number of the dealer?

Man, that looks like an immaculate W140. Incidently this is my all time favorite S class too!

10-14 Lakhs makes this look like amazing value. hmm...this, or a new Hyundai Sonata....

yo r! a new sonata will cost u just 9 lacs!
this car needs to be checked up coz,it doesnt have the original becker deck,instead some pioneer player which doesnt work with the 8 to 10 spks the merc has
why would the guy change the deck at such short running period?
wouldnt pay over 10 l
