While Volvo’s marketing was busy consuming various “natural” plants and promoting whales, then Daimler-Benz was promoting the newly completed 220-series S-Class sedan late 1998. This is what that promo looked like (and it’s very German):
There are luxury cars, then there are German luxury cars, then there is the Mercedes Benz S-Class. It is a monolithic brick of teutonic engineering. The S-Class is a car designed to place your comfort above all else. These days it seems that everyone’s interpretation of a luxury car is to try and beat the BMW M5 at…
Some of them looked nice, some looked cheap and some looked like weird clowns that haunt my dreams, here they are.
Because Gisele and because W126.
What was the first car to be equipped with electronically controlled anti-lock brakes? Mercedes-Benz S-Class. How about the first car to be equipped with air bags? S-Class. Navigation? Again, the S-Class. The list goes on and on..
The first S Class coupe I've seen out on the road. Looks really good in person. Love the little flared out spoiler on the trunk
Don't mind me...just over here appreciating these under-appreciated machines.
This thing has been on the 'Bay for a couple weeks now...and I look at it every day. It's the only one like it I've ever seen - only W221 I've ever seen with the 4 seat interior, and the only 65 I've seen in Jade Green...one of only a few W221s I've ever seen in that color. Also that interior is nice. Would like to…
Welcome back to Cool Cars in Uncool Places.
My opinion on it: Very sexy, but also busier than the concept they showed. The interior is spot on, but the rear bumper with the vents doesn't work here. It did on the CLA, but on a big Coupe it looks kinda cheap.
Oh my. That color. That wheels. That price :/
Who knew that Mother Nature is a jalop at heart?
W180, W105, W128 – “Ponton”
There are features I don't even understand! How does it have wiper fluid dispensers in the wipers!? How is the fluid heated!? Why is literally every touch point in the car heated!? Heated rock massage things in the seats?! Perfume dispensers?! IT'S TOO NICE! (I need two of em now. Plz donate)
