1995 S420

I'm about to buy a 1995 S420, and i have several questions....

1- I would like to know the average price of this car when it was NEW
2- How much HP does it have?
3- What are the cons and pros?
4- What gasoline does it use? 91 octanes or 95?
5- How many gears does it have? 4 or 5 or 6?

because right now i have a volvo 940 and its a 2.3 v4, and it only has 4 gears and when im going at 100Km the car is going at 2500 RPM, i hope the benz is not like that

You should post this on the w140 forum. I am sure they can answer all your questions.

Mercedes doo tend to rev high for highway cruises actually. However I believe it to be due to the final drive ratio and do not think it affects gas milage, I know that it does not affect longevity. As for transmission I do not know if it is a 4 or 5 speed, but I am fairly certain that if it is a 4 speed then it has no overdrive and 4th gear is a 1:1 ratio, if it is a 5 speed then the 5th gear is an overdrive and is about .88:1 ratio.
