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.

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?

Other things that I loved about the W140. 1. Steering was light and the turning diameter was excellent for a big car. 2. When fixing, changing items under the hood, it could be raised straight up. 3. All of the outside lights did not need any tools to remove and replace. 4. The dash lights were a breeze to change 5. The radio was a breeze to change. 6. The 96 and on AC unite were a breeze to change. 7. The spare tire cover had a rope attached that connected to the boot to keep the cover open while you grabs the tires and tools. 8. The AC and front window defroster was the stongest I have ever seen. 9. If soneone pits there fingers on the window while its going up it will tap the top and then roll down. 10. On newer W140s besides having rear sensors for reversing, it had front sensors as well. 11. If your riding in the MB by your self and you want all the air or heat to you only or away from you - the to open and close vent lever was right there. Very convenient. I used It all the time. 12. The door handles were just solid. Every thing was solid. 13. The hood had two release locks instead usual one. 13. My mechanic said the brake pads were the size you put on f450 trucks -huge. 14. The roof railing kept the rain from running into the car. I miss my W140. I had a Black on Black. My only issue was alleged mechanics (and there were many) who claim to know how to fix it lied. From a perfect car to one that things were no longer working. But I loved that car. 11.

I had 1992 BMW 730i with factory front and rear park distance control... How did mercedes invent them later than 1994?

Bmw also wanted to put v16 on e32(started developing in 1987 and was ready for 1988,project "goldfisch") ... And had xenon headlights in 1991 on 750i. So it's hard to say that these things were so unbeliveable in 1996 or smth.

That's not a W140, it's a V140. V indicates long wheelbase, they only brought long wheelbase and coupe (C) and cabriolet (A) to the US
JDM180 Πριν 28 ημέρες
I think you messed up on the title. This was definitely the worst S class ever. V220 was almost as bad, V221 was way better than both 140 and 220. V222 is the best, because it's the newest, and in my opinion a bargain when comparing with Rolls Royce, Bentley, etc. I actually think the S class is nicer, and a fraction of the price of those super high end cars.
