The Appeal

Built from 1972 to 1980, the W116 was a huge step forward for Mercedes-Benz' flagship sedans. Luxurious, fearlessly disciplined lines and a beautifully trimmed cabin made the car a huge hit, and perhaps most significantly, created the first bonafide S-Class - a name now synonymous with top-notch comfort and impressive build quality.

This example has been subject to an impressive restoration, which has left it in fine fettle - fully treated for corrosion, a complete repaint and a new interior trim all leaving it in remarkable condition that's bound to impress any enthusiast. Mechanically, the vehicle has been thoroughly reviewed and updated with many new parts imported from Germany and La Cochera. A new fuel pump and filter have also been recently installed.

If you're seeking an eminently drivable and comfortable classic, this W116 will no doubt be just the ticket.
