Hello Everyone just joined BenzWorld

Greetings Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have just purchased my very first mercedes benz, and a bold purchase too. A W140 S600 with only 80KM, in mint pristine condition for an extremely reasonable price. What attracted me primarily, to the car was not the sheer size or the brute strength of the engine nor the deep throated growl of the V12 used in the zonda pagani C12, never fails to bring a wide grin to my face when passing slower moving cars. I gravitated to the car because of its sheer beauty, and level of engineering. Prior to purchasing this car, I have driven only a few mercs prior to purchasing this S-Class. I have driven a '97 E-Class, feels quite similair to this S-Class. A 2002 C240 not really as nice despite being a newer body design.

The big car handles well for its size. I get a few odd stares here and there especially from older middle aged people. Guys if you can get your hands on this particular s class, do it while your younger. This car is fun to drive yet luxurious and commands respect from a lot of cars on the rode. This car definitely feels like step up, despite coming from a recent new body 3 series. This car has made me a believer of german engineering at its highest level. Will definitely keep this car for a good while.

While I'm not new to owning a german car. This S600 feels special in stark comparison to my '89 bmw 525i. The bimmer despite being a mid sized sedan, feels like a compact when parked next to the benz. Both cars are great to drive. The bimmer is fun to drive fast in the corners. In a straight line however, the benz is virtually unparalleled in absolute ride comfort and driving prowess. There is no equal to this car. When I purchased the benz just recently. I sorta knew what I was getting myself into. A very special euro luxo cruiser car. The muted growling sound of the V12 when it purrs is a pleasant reminder of what a special uber mobile that this car is.
