The "W140" Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the best S-Class ever. Today I'm going to show you why the 1990s S-Class is the best one by reviewing this S500, and I'm going to show you the quirks and features of the W140 S-Class -- an impressive car that pioneered a lot of technology. I'm also going to get the W140 S-Class out on the road and see how it drives.

This particular one has all the typical mercedes features. 1-year out of date tags, massive curb rash on all 4 wheels, peeling trim pieces, orange peel textured paint on most body panels, crappy steering wheel cover, and a disintegrating interior.

i had a mercedes that you seat and when you insert the key, the steering wheel and the seat goes to the position i previous adjusted for my driving position but when i enter the car i almost can walk in. Everything is at the far position it can. The noise it makes when the keys of the car phone are pressed is to help blind people to hear the number they pressed, each sound is associated with a number on the dialer, but i never understood how can a blind man drive a large and long mercedes S-class, german engeniering .Oh, well! regards and stay safe

it´s a good car but not the best S-class , i thing the best S-class is the released in 1973 the 500 SE, this one i found it very good ,that´s why i don´t believe in the story they tell about the crash where the so-called princess Dyana of england died in a place inside a car like this that even a normal car wouldn´t had problems, excluding the daewoo(or chevrolet) matiz and in this car "they say" it entered in a tunnel at 140 km´s /h and that´s why the professional driver crashed and dyana was filmed still with life in the car after the crash asking for help, having died before the emergency vehicules arrive ,also the only survivor that all the press around the world wanted to interview him to know what really happened, when he left the hospital the only permanent injurie was that somehow is tongue was cut off, so he couldn´t speak ,then nowhere to be found .The only thing that i found amazing is everybody was satisfied with the oficial version of the facts and blamed the paparazis, wich is stupid and at the same time sad, this car didn´t any problem of entering this tunel inside the city of Paris. If you can, go there and see for yourselves. They say that were under the influence of cocaine and alcohol , i never had problems with it and in this car that it was at the time one of the safest cars in the world. I drove both diesel version and gasoline and at 160km´s an hour it seems or gives the feeling that is stopped .No one question´s this? very strange or not? Regards and stay safe

Another great Mercedes built with no regards to cost was the Mercedes 600 it was sold from 1964 all the way to 1980, as a result It was one of the most expensive cars to roll out of the 60s in 1964 Mercedes Benz was charging $25,000 a piece for them jay lenno has a 72 model year you should check it out.

Tthhissss - is generally, the worst car review ever. Now, the attached one is very much befitting a W-140, well informed and using a fine example of the S500 W-140. I am not going to cheerlead for Demuro just because he has done some good work in the past. Tthissss - was lazy, my 'Doug' score: .3/100 for not being in a Speedo. am-posts.info/list/tJWpmJzYy2bIi6g/video&ab_channel=CuriousCars

The W140 was somehow better to drive than the W116, and maybe even the W126, which were already good enough. I am kinda confused.
Rui Cameira
Rui Cameira 14 օր առաջ
no confusion at all , istill prefer to drive the 1973 500SE , and the next in the 80´s was kind of more better in handling but in a certain point it´s impossible to improve so they make it work diferent and some prefer the modern way ,others as I prefer the old way of driving ,it was safest and not fake, regards and stay safe(os meus cumprimentos e que tenhas saúde)

Yes, it was a bit old style at the time, but audi it´s just a VW with some improvements but in the 70´s they were the same,only the badge changed, they wanted to copy the lancia´s wich had in early 80´s already automatic air conditioned, normally they follow the mercedes but around 10 years after mercedes release one feature ,other brands in 10 or 20 years will copy those features from old mercedes, regards and stay safe

Sorry, but the las great Mercedes, was the W126. The W140 it’s full of electronics that brings headaches. Also the W201 and the W123 were the last great Mercedes on their class. I’ve owned some of them and know them.

I've been hesitant to watch this video. 30 secs into it and have to stop. Too painful to watch because I used to own a W140 but had to let it go. As Scotty Kilmer says, endless money pit! So many problems and I kept paying them cause the car is so beautiful, spent $3K one year thinking that would be it, no more problems. But nope, car started shaking and fuel consumption went through the roof! I had to let it go. Such a beautiful car, very regretful to let go. There is nothing like a Mercedes S Class.

People keep repeating these foolish legends,like "Mercedes wanted to make the best car of the world,no matter what it costs".Nonsense,they have never done that.Some call this model most overrated,can´t tell,but I can tell you that w220 ,too,is well made car.I think Doug hates how it looks?

@Elvis Bosak So,they considered the cost after all?Seriously,it was built with great effort and money,but there were all kind of hassle and the development of V12 engine must have cost extramoney.It´s reliability and built quality(or design)of some parts is not that legendary,according to some owners and dealers.Some even say w220 is more reliable.Nevertheless,great car,and I´m a fan too,believe it or not.
