Lucky brat! How is her condition? Is she mechanically sound?

How much did the new owner pay for this one. I remember seeing a similar one in tbhp classifieds while I was hunting one for my dad but according to some advices, the car was in a pathetic state to be picked. Wonder if it is the same.

sidindica, which city do you live in??that is a clean s320 pre face lift model there,the current or the previous owner has good taste & has upgraded the grill to a s600 grill,makes it look more majestic,there is something about the w140,
over engineered & over advanced for its sheer time,
i love it every look of it

For me if its a W140, it has to be a V12.

Here's one engine bay of one well maintained, a great running car owned by a good friend.

The blue S600 Lorinser is now in quite a bad state. Its near my house, at a second hand car dealer who repairs and sells cars. The dealer also had a 1st generation Lexus LS400 an E36 BMW 3 series and a 9th generation Toyota Crown Super Saloon. Here are a few pics of the S600 -

I dont think this car is either a 500 or a 600, Looks more S280 or 300 with the Lorinser kit. If memory serves me well this car was from worli.

Exactly what I thought, but didn't say it for fear of being bashed up by the W140 loyalists and gurus out here. Thanks for confirming, speedy

A Fantastically maintained W140 S600 from some chinese firm. Horribly rebadged though.

What can you say about this beauty...

One distinctive trait of the W140 is the way it makes other Luxo-Barges feel cheap and timid.

Sir with all due respect WALD is a respected Japanese tuning firm that deal in cosmetic mods like body kits, exhausts etc. The S class you have posted is a Japanese tuning style known as VIP or BIPPU where you basically lower the car as much as possible with the body kits and low profile wheels. Its usually done on 4 door sedans. This style of tuning is/was quite popular with Japanese Yakuza who wanted to keep to a Japanese car but at the same time wanted it to be very different. Its now quite popular in many parts of the world.

W140s indeed have an imposing road presence, especially the VIP style ones. BTW here's a video of a VIP style W140 S class with 20" rims

The W140 was modified by a few tuners who took the 6.0L v12 and bored it to 7.3L. That is why it is carrying the S73 badge.

As written on page 1 of this thread, "They dont make them like they used to anymore..."

The W140 is a car with some massive history!
