I see you have been googling. I do plan on having her in similar condition but it would take a while. The colour though will remain the same.

The gash can be plastic welded, and you would not be able to make it out. The car needs an overcoat or a scrap down but at a later stage. Right now my priority is bringing her on the road.

I hope it does too. Like i mentioned earlier also the only modification or replacement this car shall get are the music system and tinted film on the glasses, otherwise she is perfect.

Yes Ajmat they belong to the same owner. I convinced him to sell those as well. The 87 car need a complete job whereas the 94 is in the same shape as the S.


@JayPrashanth. Thank you.

The S500 was the undisputed king in terms of the finest car in the world stakes in its heyday. The V12 was a tadbit nose heavy but much the same beast as the 500. The last of the over engineered S Classes. While some people find its slab sided design odd I quite liked this car. This car was built with giants in mind ! You could lose yourself in the seats

Great car, built like a tank. Congrats, it will become a Classic soon

Is the top speed limited to 250 kmph? - Like most mainstream super saloons from Germany..
Can the limiter be removed? If possible then get this -

Edit:- She must be purrring like a kitten idling at 650 rpm..

Hey there V12. Congratulations on the purchase. I just wanted to tell you that i saw two cars in your color in the past two days. One was the same model as yours and the other looked brand new. The new one looked like it had a two tone effect but the color was identical to the color in your pics.

Just wanted to let you know that they both looked spectacular and i hope your car gets back to fully restored condition soon. I know for a fact now that it will look incredible. Wish you the very best and enjoy the ride.
