A treat for W140 fans, an official video that walks you through some of the (then innovative) features:

By 2030 (another 20 years), all the mainstream cars are going to have the above features. Hyundai guys probably keep checking the above video to see what gadgetry they can stuff in their new cars!

Brilliant ode to an era when designs of cars were still being controlled by engineers. The feeling of solidity, the firmness, not sure why are those not desired by the market anymore? The market needs flame surfacing, the market needs flashy interiors that dont really do much more than what this did. Besides the market doesn't care that the newer ones dont last, and yet are prohibitively expensive.

This is not a hypothesis it is a fact. Every major international Auto Show has swarms of people from mainly Jap/Kor manufacturers taking copious notes and pictures of German machinery. You can see loads of them at the big shows. With all due respect maybe the Germans are also doing it with the Jap/Kor cars but they probably do it far more subtly

I was surprised to see this visitor to my office today, although it's in an extremely sad state.

Can't get enough of the W140. Would any day prefer this to the current gen S Class. Here is what looks like a bone stock S500.

I had seen an advertisement for a W140 S600 on OLX in Delhi last year with a very hefty price tag of 25 Lacs non-negotiable. I tried contacting the dealer Amit, however could not contact him. It was CH registered.

It was previously up for sale for around Rs 10-12 lakhs. Dealer is probably flipping the car without adding any value to it
